Read a Good Book Lately? — 5 Comments

  1. Hi Sue,mysteries are my favorite and like you,anything British. Peter Robinson,Margaret York,Ruth Rendell,Ian Rankin all favorites . I just finished- Meet Me atThe Museum by Anne Youngson-really good although not a mystery. I miss my libraries so much,the books and the people.

    • I miss libraries too….and friends like you!Maybe I can find Meet Me at the Museum for my Kindle (which currently has 190 books on it LOL)

  2. Hi Sue–
    Have read all kinds of books all my life–but strangely enough,I didn’t actually think about writing a book until I began reading Christian-based novels. Then I thought perhaps I could write one as well. Suddenly a whole new world of ideas opened up, and I was further given a very clear direction and Purpose in mind–(something I didn’t read often: to write Historical Women’s Fiction). Always amazed at how the Lord works things work out.

  3. Hi, Suse! I am currently reading “The Woman in the Window” by A.J. Finn, kind of a modern take on “Rear Window”. I generally like fiction, but have read Michelle Obama’s bio, where I found we had many similarities growing up.

    My all-time favorite is mysteries and detective novels. I highly recommend authors such as Louise Penny, whose Armand Gamache is Inspector General of the Surete Québécois. Her characters are just plain delicious, you’ll see what I mean.

    Because you are an Anglophile, go for Elizabeth George’s Inspector Lynley series, also highly developed in the character department. This was a PBS series way back before I started her books. Also I recommend Mark Billingham, a Brit whose lead detective Tom Thorne is a flawed, yet gifted investigator.

    Of course medical examiner novels such as those by Patricia Cornwell and Kathy Reichs are intriguing. One of my very favorite authors is John Sandford , who writes the “Prey” novels, starring Investigator Lucas Davenport, and sometimes his associate Virgil Flowers. There is always a thread of humor in the conversations, which are also very real. These novels, to me, are “purchase-worthy”! But right now I really miss my library!

    Other authors I love include J. A. Jance, Catherine Coulter, John Grisham, David Baldacci… I can go on, but you get the idea. All I can tell you is, I get nervous if I don’t have at least two books waiting for me when I finish the one I’m currently into.have at least two books waiting
