Posted January 9, 2021 by Anne - Books of My Heart in Giveaway, Series on Saturday / 25 Comments

This is a new feature I developed where each month we will look at our favorite – the best – series in a genre or topic.

The topic here, by my definition,  is a series set in London.     These are the ones which came to mind.  I enjoyed some more than others.

Since I haven’t read everything, it’s a subset of the possibilities.  I’m sure I am forgetting some great authors. There are also plenty of authors I have yet to read. Please share your favorites with me in the comments, also.

My favorite London series are (in no particular order):


Sebastian St. Cyr                                  Richard Jury                                     Charlotte & Thomas Pitt
by CS Harris                                                   by Martha Grimes                              by Anne Perry



Alex Verus                                             Thomas Lynley                                   Duncan Kincaid & Gemma James
by Benedict Jacka                                        by Elizabeth George                                 by Deborah Crombie

    My favorite London series is Bec McMaster’s London Steampunk series.

  2. I love a London setting! And this is a great list. Anne Perry’s series is the only one on here I’ve read. I have read one Crombie and one George novel, both of which I enjoyed. I need to go back and start from the beginning of those series. And I’d like to read Harris’s series. I would add Gail Carriger’s Parasol Protectorate series to the list.

    • Sadly I’ve only read a few by Anne Perry and want to read more. I’ve read the entire George and Crombie series and LOVE them. I’ve seen the George series on PBS a long while ago too, very different than the books. I just finished the 3rd book in CS Harris’ series and am LOVING it. I’d like to read the Gail Carriger books too.

    I’ve read most of the books in all the series listed and I’ve probably read a hundred more set in London. Just listened to Fated in audio last week, plan to rework my way through the whole series in audio. However, I’m going with The Rook Files (The Rook and Stiletto) by Daniel O’Malley. I consider them a mystery/sci-fi blend and quite unique.

    Unfortunately, I don’t pay enough attention to books to know if there are based in London proper or a suburb, or English Countryside. LOL. But I did just start the Kat Holloway Mysteries by Jennifer Ashley and that is set in London. And then there is the London Steampunk series by Bec McMaster – it’s an alternate timeline London, but still London.

    Sebastian St. Cyr by C. S. Harris I read it recently excellent. I don’t get a lot of time to myself but sitting back with a good book even for 30 mins a day is the best!

    • It is a really great series so far. I’ve only read the first 3 and I have the 4th now from the library. I listen while I do chores, cooking, walk the dog, or travel in the car to doc appt or pharmacy pickup. I used to spend more time in the car or running errands when I would listen. But I’ve read all the Jacka, Grimes, Crombie and George books and loved them. Anne Perry is prolific and it’s been a long time since I read her. I want to go back and catch up to date.
