Crime on My Mind

Murder on the Thanksgiving Menu.

Since this is the weekend of the Canadian Thanksgiving celebrations -- and I am celebrating with my son in Fredericton, N.B. -- I thought it would be fun to list all the mysteries which take place on or around Thanksgiving. Canadian, British & U.S. titles are all fair fixings. start it off, my choice is Still Life by Louise Penny. It was our first visit to the village of Three Pines in the Eastern Townships and it took place during Thanksgiving weekend. We met and got hooked on Inspector Armand Gamache and all the villagers, even though a murderer was in their midst and a well-known resident was the victim. Not only was the village a wonderful place to visit but the holiday was wonderfully celebrated. it's your turn. (I am on holiday, you know.) Thanksgiving and a book and author!

  1. Burden of Memory, by moi, Vicki Delany. The wealthy Madison clan family gathers for Thanksgiving at the grand old cottage on Lake Muskoka, and someone does not want the elderly lady's memoirs to be written.

  2. I loved that book! Glad you mentioned it, Vicki. Hope those who haven't read it will search it out and do so.

  3. woah, this is an easy comment - just look at this list, lots of friends here

  4. ooops, that got posted just a tad too quick - since Canada and US celebrate thanksgiving on different days, my list pretty much reflects the US version - sorry about that, LindaTheGreen
