Murder on Madison Square by Victoria Thompson @gaslightvt @BerkleyPub

I have been loving this Gaslight Mystery series.  I enjoy all the characters but particularly Frank and Sarah.  I’m glad they are the primary ones investigating rather than Gino and Maeve.  It’s a little sad to see less of their children, Brian and Catherine, and Sarah’s parents but they can’t be involved in every case.

🎧 The Last House on the Street by Diane Chamberlain @D_Chamberlain @SiriouslySusan @StMartinsPress @MacmillanAudio #LoveAudiobooks

I tried this author’s work for the North Carolina settings.  The books I have read are historical fiction and deal with the aspects of racism and mistreatment of minorities, including women.  The characters are well developed whether they are compassionate and caring or angry bigots. I was in suspense as I waited to see what […]

I love this world and its layered characters!   There are many threads from the previous book,  The Murder on Cold Street which take us into a new adventure.   I would read this series in order because the complexity of the characters and relationships which are just as important as the particular cases.  They build over […]

🎧 When the Ghosts Come Home by Wiley Cash @wileycash @JDJacksonVO  @HarperAudio #LoveAudiobooks

I wanted to read When the Ghosts Come Home as soon as I read the blurb.   I enjoy police procedurals and it is set in North Carolina plus a father / daughter dynamic.   It was not what I expected and heartbreaking. I liked Sheriff Winston Barnes. He had a level-headed and hard-working way.  The crimes […]
