Reviews of What I've Been Reading….

DEAD MAN’S CHEST by Kerry Greenwood

I love watching Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries on PBS. Phryne is definitely in a class by herself. And the costumes are to die for — very Downton! I was thrilled to find a Miss Fisher mystery on Net Galley. I have read other mysteries of favorite shows, but this one was different. It gave a greater depth to the characters and spent a lot of time in character development. There was a mystery, of course, and lots of twists and intrigue, but overall, it was a very solid and pleasant story.

Here’s the overview:

If you enjoy the series on PBS (haven’t watched it? start now and thank me later!), you will enjoy this novel full of favorite people and fun!

Thank you for my review e-copy!

My Top 12 Reads/Listens for 2017!

I’m a bit late to the party on this post (blame my vacation travel, Disney, NYC, or the fact that I got sick), but I wanted to share my very favorite reads (and listens) from the past year.

First I must say that EVERY book I post about is a book that I’ve enjoyed. If I’m not liking a book, I don’t finish it; and if I don’t finish it, I don’t review it (though I will book blast a book I haven’t read – I generally say just that in the post). So, ALL the books I posted about this year are great books!

Here are the ones that stand out – that stay in my mind – that I recommend most often:
