Have you read Jane Langton’s books? I’ve loved Ms. Langton’s books since I was a little girl, especially her Hall Family children’s books. Jane’s “Homer Kelly” cozy mysteries follow the exploits of a mild-mannered Harvard professor who stumbles upon and solves mysteries, often in the New England countryside. While I was in Hawaii I received an email from an editor at Open Road Media to say that Ms. Langton’s mysteries were being re-released with new e-book covers. You can check out this link with video for more info; it focuses on how Ms. Langton does her own illustrations. Check it out!
Thanks, Open Road Media, for letting me know and having me pass the word along! And if you have never read Ms. Langton, and you enjoy mysteries and New England, you are in for a real treat.
