Liz Given that I loved Glass Houses and In Farleigh Field, I think I need to add Hollywood Homicide to my TBW queue. Have you read it?

I’m a big fan of Louise Penny, very happy that she won & am looking forward to reading Glass Houses down the road. Haven’t read any Bowen yet. She’s the author of 3 different series, including the popular Molly Murphy & Her Royal Spyness books. In Farleigh Field is a standalone historical mystery that I plan to read this summer.
I’m not familiar with Kellye Garrett so another new author to discover.
Let me know your thoughts if you’ve read or plan to read any of the winners!

No I haven’t heard of it until now but but I just checked a friend review (Barbara), she read it last June, really enjoyed it & gave it 5 stars. I’m hoping the library has copies.
