Humour in a police procedural? Read A Bad Day for Sunshine

Humour in a police procedural? Read A Bad Day for Sunshine

It isn't often that you come across a police procedural infused with humour. Not just occasional, subtle humour, but full of laugh-out-loud tongue in cheek humour. I have really been enjoying Darynda Jone's A Bad Day for Sunshine. Sunshine is the name of the police chief in this small town police procedural featuring the kidnapping of a teenager who is friends with her own daughter. ...
The Searcher: Tana French is Master of the Slow Burn

The Searcher: Tana French is Master of the Slow Burn

The Searcher is slow burn suspense. If you are looking for a high-octane thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end, this is not the book for you. Instead, it is a walk out on the Irish heath on a sunny day, watching the sheep graze, as the clouds gradually roll in, getting darker and darker, with the forest closing in around you. ...

James Patterson's The 17th Suspect—The Women's Murder Club does not disappoint

James Patterson’s The 17th Suspect—The Women’s Murder Club does not disappoint

I am currently reading James Patterson's The 17th Suspect (book #17 in The Women's Murder Club series). I have enjoyed a number of the other books in this series, though I couldn't tell you exactly how many. They are always a good read. Clever, familiar characters with heart, a mystery or trial, several unexpected twists and turns. ...
Excerpt from The Guest List

Excerpt from The Guest List

I am currently reading The Guest List by Lucy Foley. First off, it is praised repeatedly as being reminiscent of Agatha Christie. It is like Agatha Christie insofar as it is a murder mystery with a closed cast of suspects. The characters all have shameful secrets and, I assume later in the book, will turn out to have more connections than the reader is initially told. ...
