November Books to Warm up the Cold

November is here and so is the cold.  Not bitter cold, but jackets and coats now required.  It always seems there is far too little fall weather that is between hot and cold, just pleasantly warm.  But, the good news is that November also brings lots of great reading our way in new book publications, so it's not quite so hard to stay indoors. Below is a list of new fiction, mostly mystery and crime, that has gotten my attention and hopefully will make it to your TBR lists.  I'm including Elly Griffiths' new stand-alone book and Catriona McPherson's new Dandy Gilver book even though they're not out in the states.  Those of us who can't wait for our favorite British authors' books know how to get them when they come out in the UK first.  And, if you don't know how, I suggest you start with Book Depository, with its timely and free shipping.  I've also included Ovidia Yu's The Frangipani Tree Mystery, even though it's already out on Kindle, as the print copy won't be out until this month.
