Man, it's a hot one...

Man, it's a hot one...

and it's only going to get hotter out here in the desert.

I recently read (and loved) Ivy Pochoda's Wonder Valley and since it's set in both Los Angeles and Wonder Valley which isn't too far from Joshua Tree, I started wondering about what other books are out there that are set either in or near the desert we call home...the Coachella Valley.

Turns out there's quite a few mystery novels set in the desert! I'm definitely interested in doing some more digging to see what else is out there. I think it's pretty cool to have novels set where you live, don't you? 

Here are a few books to check out:

See you in the stacks,
