Cool Books; the website

Like Mysteries? Me too! each week find video reviews of cloth, paperback and mass market titles, competitions,  and more


My name is Paula Longhurst and my day job is selling books.  I work at The King's English in Salt Lake City, Utah. 

I've had a blog for over seven years. Problem is that a blog will only go so far and there were some things that I simply couldn't do with the blog alone.  

To your right you'll see the latest video review.  All previous mystery series book reviews can be found on the englishrosesloverain YouTube channel

Mystery Menu

One of the most frequent requests at TKE is "I really liked the Sue Grafton/Martha Grimes/PD James (insert author here) series but I've read all of his/her books and now I want something along those lines. Can you help?" Well, yes we can. The Mystery Menu is a way to tie authors to drinks and then recommend a writer in that bracket.  For instance, loved Steig Larson's Millenium trillogy? How about Jo Nesbo or Jussi Adler Olsen.  A fan of Ruth Rendell's Inspector Wexford? try Susan Hill or Tana French.

Are you  in a book group?

If you are looking for some mysteries to read I would be happy to recommend titles to you and your fellow readers.   If you are interested in having a virtual book talk, go to the book talk page, answer a few questions and then email me to schedule a date and time.
