Dead to Writes (Cathy Wiley)

It's another murder mystery, and once again, my gut feeling gave an erroneous assumption. Thankfully, Cassandra Ellis and Detective James Whittaker were not so easily misled.

Life in the Slow Lane (Thomas Sullivan)


This book marks the first work of nonfiction that I've reviewed for this blog. With Driver's Ed an activity long-forgotten, it was intriguing to think about it from the instructor's point of view. Sullivan just happens to have first-hand experience.

She is currently working on her second novel, a continuation of the adventures of Inspector George Büchner.

Mr. Darcy's Diary (Amanda Grange)


To an avid fan of Jane Austen's works, the idea of Pride and Prejudice from Mr. Darcy's point of view was appealing. It bears reiterating, however, that the book was in fact written centuries later by a different author.
