Louise Penny - All the Devils Are Here My rating: 5/5
Ann Cleeves - The Darkest Evening (her latest "Vera" mystery) My rating 5/5
Elly Griffiths - The Lantern Men My rating 3.5/5 (This may have been a higher rating if I had read more of her other books, which I might do. I feel like perhaps I needed to know the characters better)
Deborah Crombie - Garden of Lamentations My rating 3.5/5 (This is a Duncan Kincaid, Gemma James mystery and I haven't read one of these in quite a while. I found it hard to keep track of all the characters.)
Janet Evanovich - Fortune and Glory: Tantalizing Twenty-Seven 4/5 (A quick, fun read. I've read all twenty-six leading up to this one. If you are looking for a series that has humour and a mystery, this won't disappoint. If you are looking for thought-provoking literature, look elsewhere.)
Sarah Ward - In Bitter Chill 4/5 (First time reading this author - crime fiction - liked it so much, I ordered the next one from the library)
Jonathan Kellerman - Serpentine (3/5) This is the latest Alex Delaware novel. I am tiring of Kellerman's overly wordy style, and his need to keep repeating how he describes characters.
Jann Arden - If I Knew Then (4/5) I'm not a big listener of Jann Arden's music, but I have seen her on various shows (Rick Mercer, for example) and I thoroughly enjoy her personality. This is a reflection on her life and how she is embracing her inner Crone now. I really liked it - funny with some good (relatable, for me) serious stuff underlying it all.
Richard Osman - The Thursday Murder Club (4/5) I enjoyed this first novel from the author. I can see it turning into a series of books. It can sometimes be a bit confusing in the beginning as it dances around various characters (residents of seniors' apartments), but it's fun, well-crafted, and a relatively quick read.
Elly Griffiths - Postscript Murders (3.5/5) Good, enjoyed it, has detective Harbinder Kaur in it.
Elly Groffiths - Stranger Diaries (3.5 / 5) Same as above.
