Growled? Must be a good book.

To me, the only bad thing about the Hamish Macbeth series is that I've read all the ones my library has. And her Agatha Raisins, too. Now I've begun to ask for Marion Chesney titles (the M. C. in M. C. Beaton). I enjoy her sense of humor.

I have also read all of her Agatha Raisin stories too. That is the sad part when you have read all of her books. I feel the same about Hazel Holt and her Mrs. Malory mysteries. I am even starting to read some of her earlier stories again.

I'm working my way through "From Sea to Shining Sea" that was recommended here. It is a wonderful read. I find myself googling things that come up in the book, looking for old maps and other historical references when I"m not reading the book. Great stuff!

Thanks for another "new to me" author.

I think I'll see if my library has the Macbeth Highlands Christmas for a repeat reading close to the holiday; it's been several years since I first read it.

I have finished "Ripper" by Amy Carol Reeves...it was brilliant, I loved it!

Love the flow of the writing, the storyline, everything...it is her first novel but will certainly read more of them once she writes them

I just finished The Crossing Places (Ruth Galloway Series #1) by Elly Griffiths. Excellent mystery read. I am going to start on her second in the series, The Janus Stone tonight. I really enjoyed the Ruth Galloway character and look forward to the rest of the series.
