Kinsey Millhone Series

I have read and loved every one of these 25 books and I will miss Kinsey.

Eye of Isis Series

Another great setting and community from Stabenow that feels authentic. And good mysteries too.

Nell Ward Series

The plots weren’t bad and the characters are mildly interesting if flat. Just not my cup of tea. (Cliché intended.)

Not the Ones Dead

This is #23 in what has been and continues to be one of my favorite mystery series. (I’ve read them all.)

North from Rome

Our Italian vacation took us to Rome also, so I tried another Helen MacInnes novel set in Italy.

Red Joan

This was not at all what I expected. It was more about why and how someone becomes a spy rather than the actual work of being a spy.

The Venetian Affair

What a time warp of a book. I read this mainly because we were heading to Venice on vacation.

Her Final Words

I found this book deliciously dark and sad.

The Unspoken

It was … fine. I didn’t love it. I didn’t hate it.

The Punishment She Deserves

I have always loved this series and this is a nice addition to it. They’re mysteries, yes, but rich in detail and human interactions and not something you can or should rush through.
