[Reviews] Forever RumpoleA collection of stories so good that I've had to go back and start collecting the stories from the very beginning...
[Reviews] Time to Murder and CreateMatthew Scudder takes on an intriguing case at least as interesting as his previous one.
My introduction to the written version of Bones was enjoyable, but not as familiar as I anticipated.
I have watched the Bones television show up to very nearly its most current episode, which is a lot of viewing for a guy like me who doesn't actually find time for a lot of TV programming. Yes, I'm a fan. For quite a while, I've also been aware that the series was based on the novels of Kathy Reichs. Recently, I decided to give one of them a shot to see how they compare.
A lot of fun for fans of Emberstowne and the characters who populate it.
"Grace Against the Clock," the fifth in Julie Hyzy's series of mystery novels about the fictional Manor House, is named about as cleverly as any novel I can remember ever reading. I just had to get that out there. As for the story, it's a lot of fun too.
Rather more exciting than a novel about a group of quilters probably has the right to be.
"Forget Me Knot" is the first novel in a new series from Mary Marks, who also is a first-time novelist. That fact might suggest that the story she tells here is lackluster, owing to inexperience, but there are plenty of times throughout history when writers have manage to get things right with the first published attempt. This is one of them.
I've never seen a protagonist in a long-running series that was so determined to make me dislike her.
I picked up "Not the Killing Type" because I was interested in taking another trip to the fictional town of Stoneham, last seen in "Murder on the Half Shelf." When I finished reading that previous book in the series, I wasn’t exactly in love with the recurring heroine, Tricia Miles, but I did like the scenery and I figured the next installment would work out nicely.
