Oh yes I often turn to the wonderful Miss Hever as well. I never tire of reading her books. I adore Joan HIckson as Miss Marple and she is simply perfect. Nobody else comes near. And I so agree with you re those adaptations at Christmas. I now do not bother watching as my lord pressure goes through the roof

I had reached a reading hiatus last week when I was mooching around and could not settle to anything so when that happens to me I re-read. As I have just visited Agatha Christie’s house I decided to pull down... Continue reading

I think she is a lovely writer. She was at the Felixstowe Book festival the other year while I was away so I missed her. So annoyed

Well Erica has a huge following, sells shedloads of books all over the world so I suppose the publishers and she know what they are doing. I just think that these kinds of covers, which I do find attractive on the whole, give a false impression of what is between the covers
Many thanks for all the comments and good wishes. They mean a great deal to me and I will continue blogging as long as the Little Grey Cells stay functioning!

OKeydoke. I have yet to try the Christopher Bush books. I did wonder so perhaps I ought to download one and try. The ones by Moray Dalton are good

I suppose it is the contrary in me but when I see the Costa list, the Booker list or whatever I rechristen List of Books I Will Never Read And I have read quite a few Bookers over the years and yes, many of them were good, but I have no desire to reread any of them or to read any more. I tried as I thought I should but no more.
Yes I agree with you. I have lots to say about book covers. I may even do a post about it!
Sue if you are in the UK, sorry I do not know your location, message or email me and I will send you my copy

I am sure that most of my readers think I spend my days steeped in mystery and gore and, yes, I do read an enormous amount of crime fiction. I love it and have done every since I discovered Agatha... Continue reading

The Dalton books aer a bargain. I have been in touch with Dean Street Press and they will be publishing more by this author so I am delighted. the LJRoss will keep you going for a while! And the latest Ohlsson is due out in September so I have pre-ordered it. Let me know what you think of any of these in due course. I would love to know
I remember that Nesbo book and, yes, it was scary. Thanks for the recommendations and will check the out Yes I agree with certain books at certain times. Winter for me is Dickens, Trollope et al. Summertime much lighter stuff
I spent my childhood in Newcastle so love the atmosphere as well. Thank goodness she writes quickly as I could not bear to wait a year to see what happens next
No Pam the Ross books are not gory or grisly. Just well written and unputdownable. I have added another post this morning directing you to my review of a book by Moray Dalton which I think you will also enjoy. Jo Nesbo is a bit too much at times!
As an addition to my post on crime reading may I direct you to the link below where I review The Strange Case of Harriet Hall by Moray Dalton. A reprint by Dean Street Press and well worth your attention.... Continue reading
