What is Tracee de Hahn reading?

Featured at Writers Read: Tracee de Hahn, author of A Well-Timed Murder.

Her entry begins:
Recently, a friend took a week off from writing and used the time to read twenty-two books. My kind of vacation. While I haven’t read twenty-two books this last week, or past month, I have a few to recommend. They are all mysteries or thrillers, with good reason. While on book tour I always buy at least one of the recommendations of every store where an event is held. I don’t second guess the staff, thinking of it as a lottery stacked in my favor.

About A Well-Timed Murder, from the publisher:
Swiss-American police officer Agnes Lüthi is on leave in Lausanne, Switzerland, recovering from injuries she sustained in her last case, when an old colleague invites her to the world’s premier watch and jewelry trade show at the grand Messe Basel Exhibition Hall. Little does Agnes know, another friend of hers, Julien Vallotton, is at the same trade show—and he’s looking for Agnes. Julien Vallotton was friends with Guy Chavanon, a master of one of Switzerland’s oldest arts: watchmaking. Chavanon died a week ago, and his daughter doesn’t believe his death was accidental. Shortly before he died, Chavanon boasted that he’d discovered a new technique that would revolutionize the watchmaking industry, and she believes he may have been killed for it. Reluctantly, Agnes agrees to investigate his death. But the world of Swiss watchmaking is guarded and secretive, and before she realizes it, Agnes may be walking straight into the path of a killer.

Tracee de Hahn's next mystery, A Well-Timed Murder, is another magnetic mystery that will engross readers from the opening page to the stunning conclusion.
