Whew! It has been a busy autumn, but now that I'm finally back home in Maine and the air is definitely too chilly to sit outside and enjoy the view, so I have no excuse to keep me from catching up on blogging, reviewing, and yes - more reading!
Since I last posted any reviews, I've finished 10 books, including the last three in the Duncan Kinkaid and Gemma James series by Deborah Crombie. I was motivated to fill in the blanks I hadn't read after reviewing To Dwell in Darkness for the TLC Blog tour. I've now completed that series, and can't wait for a new one to come out. I'm not writing reviews because when I read a series one after the other, the story blends (as well it should) and the enjoyment is ruined for me if I have to sort out what happened when.
Suffice it to say, all three of these were terrific reads. I especially like how Crombie blends specific facets of London's neighborhoods and/or history to fashion a story. Each book features the same characters, but the settings, and the criminals and their motivations are quite different. She's exceptional at blending cold cases with new ones.
