Eddie was working in a bridal shop in Flushing, Queens, ’til this podcast came along and truly changed the world! Aside from never reading any books and obnoxiously interrupting anyone who has, Eddie’s many talents include: Never letting this Nanny joke go, killing it at karaoke (as in straight up murder for the ears), and just being generally handsome and wonderful. What’s that, you ask? What is the episode about? Oh, just some great books (think Gilly MacMillan & C.J. Tudor) and films (Stephen King’s 80’s masterpiece Christine) … but back to Eddie!
This week Lee and Eddie are absolutely star struck when they interview the amazing Gilly Macmillan, author of What She Knew, and The Perfect Girl.
Lee finally agrees to read a book written before the invention of AstroTurf and Eddie picks up a book younger than the selfie stick, the latest in Patricia Cornwell’s Scarpetta series. Tune in next week to see how they’re handling the challenge!
This week Eddie reviews the one and only Anne Holt, Lee won’t stop gushing about Gilly Macmillan, and over three decades after The Shining was published Stephen King wrote a sequel, then quite a bit after that Lee found it and freaked out! Will it be great? Will Lee discover the key to making her favourite authors write sequels? Will Eddie stop interrupting long enough for her to finish her review? Probably not, but find out in episode 28!
This week, Lee has finally finished What She Knew and wants you to know what she thinks! Eddie, who hasn’t had her coffee yet and is still wearing her fire chief Donald Duck pyjamas hasn’t read a book this week, but has some opinions about crime authors keeping up with the times. They also discuss their favourite red herrings in mystery fiction.
In this episode Lee and Eddie talk Practical Magic, speculate about What She Knew, and ask themselves how easy to guess is too easy to guess when reading mystery?
Eddie geeks out about her favourite bird-like dinosaur and Lee reminisces about the good old days (like ten episodes ago), when they were reading Crime Time’s favourite trashy author.
