Mystery books!

For some reason, I've been obsessed with mystery books and I don't know why... Maybe it has something to do with hot detectives and arsenic.... I don't quite know.
Anyway, yesterday we went to Atlanta (aka Buford) GA, went and got a car, and went to the mall. We also went to Barns & Noble. Let me just say, that it's one of my favorite stores of all time. There is so much books there that it hard to decide which section to go to! Apparently my subconscious told me to go to the mystery  section... I got out one of those flyers everyone at the mall tries to give you, stole my friend Kaila's pen, and wrote down a few books I wanted to check out... I have a problem.

Ok heres the plan: I'll give you a list of the few books I found, because everyone like lists right?

1. "The Ice Princess" by Camilla Läckberg
She is a Swedish author and this is one of the books I found at Barns & Noble.
It's about a girl named Erica, and she finds her childhood friend dead. She decides to write a book about her friends life. She was very remote when she was alive and Erica doesn't know much about her, but she decides to do it anyway. Soon she uncovers secrets about a deeply disturbing past....

2. "The Marx Sisters" by Barry Maitland.
Another mystery book... All the books in this list are mystery. haha
Detective Kathy Kolla's first case is one for the books.  A great-granddaughter of Karl Marx is found dead, and they don't know why she was killed. Then another Marx is killed and they bring in detective, David Brock, from Scotland Yard is brought in to help with the case. They both work together to find the killer. Can they unravel the mystery before Kathy first case is her last?

3. "Bellfield Hall" by Anna Dean.
This book is said to be like Jane Austen books, but aren't. It's set in the time period I love to read about. I'm all for it!
The year is 1805. There is an engagement party for Mr. Richard Montague and his fiancee Catherine. They are dancing and a man appears to communicate something to Richard without saying a word, and he breaks off the engagement. Catherine is very worried, so she talks to her aunt, Miss Dido Kent. She pleads with her to find her fiancee and discover the truth behind his disappearance.

That is just a few of the books I found but I don't want to list them all because I'm lazy....haha But you get the point. I've been pretty crazy about mystery lately. Now I just need to get to the library to check them out! :D

So how did you find The Ice Princess? I wasn't too impressed by it - given all the hype about the author that I read. I wasn't really shocked by the big secret, but then, I guess I've been sensitized by watching CSI, Law and Order, etc.
