You are speedily reaching the pinnacle of 13 this year!
Somehow managed to look right past the July roundup post...oh, well, it was *almost* August when I wrote the post for Peter Robinson's Hanging Valley...
Ha, I did the same thing with Corvus, on my very own blog and linkup! Don't worry, we can share them as we get the chance, as long as they are read and reviewed between July 1 2018 & 2019 we can share them in whichever linkup we catch.
The Shapes That Creep is my third. A 1946 mystery novel set in British Columbia, written by Margerie Bonner (Malcolm Lowry's wife), I read it several months ago, but the review has only just been published in Canadian Notes & Queries.
Once again, I'd never heard of this author until you wrote about her. I appreciate you bringing so many Canadian women to my attention!
Wasn’t signed up in time for the July round up, so I’m a month behind. The first book I posted a link to was The Bishop’s Man by Linden McIntyre.

Dick Diespecker's 1953 novel Rebound is number four for me. An early Harlequin, from the years before it was a romance line, the best thing about it is the cover, which is not to say that the book itself isn't worthwhile. Essential reading for anyone interested in Depression-era Vancouver.
