A long overdue list of Recent Reads

Had to go back and look at the last time I'd posted one of these to see where I left off. There is a year's worth of them, so these may end up being divided...

The Whole Enchilada by Diane Mott Davidson

Difficult after a year, but I seem to remember enjoying this. Goldie was not quite in the TSTL category here, which made it much better.

The Norfolk Mystery: A County Guides Mystery by Ian Sansom

First in a series. Enjoyed it. It's been a year, so I suppose I should start looking for the next one.

Michael Pearce:

A Dead Man in Naples

Two more Sandor Seymour books.

The Alpine Decoy
The Alpine Fury
The Alpine Gamble
The Alpine Hero
The Alpine Icon
The Alpine Journey

Long haul for Emma Lord and the Sheriff. Finally ended well for them.

Joan Hess:

Claire Malloy series:

Murder as a Second Language
Pride v. Prejudice

The two latest in this long-running series.

Maggody series:

Malice in Maggody

Carola Dunn:

Newest one is out very soon, if not already.

Cornish Mystery series:

Manna from Hades
A Colorful Death
Valley of the Shadow

Interesting series with old-lady sleuth, her police officer niece, and a local artist who I hope becomes the niece's love interest. Set in the 60s or 70s, so women police officers were still a new thing.

Barbara Ross:

Clammed Up
Boiled Over

Series set in Maine, if I remember correctly. First two books. I'm planning to get the next one, which is out now.

Charles Todd:

Bess Crawford series:

The Maharani's Pearls (short story)
An Unwilling Accomplice

I really enjoy Bess Crawford. Smart and brave.

Inspector Ian Rutledge series:

A Fine Summer's Day

This one was set just before WWI, his last case before joining the army and having his life changed forever.

I will have to finish these in another post.  Whew!
