What am I reading now?
Headlong by Michael Frayn - A comic novel of Old Masters and Mystery. Informative and amusing at the same time.
Honeybee: Lessons from an Accidental Beekeeper by C. Marina Marchese - The true story of a woman and her beehives. I love tales like this - a woman abandons the corporate world and takes up country life.
The Crossing Places by Elly Griffiths - A new mystery author to me. The main character is Ruth Galloway, a forensic
archaeologist living and teaching on Britain's Norfolk coast. So far, so good. I liked Ruth right away and the mystery begins on page one.
I love Elly Griffiths' Ruth Galloway series. It has such an untraditional relationship between the primary characters. And, being an archeology buff, I like that aspect of them, too. I hope you enjoy them. They really should be read in order to understand the evolution of the characters.ReplyDelete
Hi Joan. Yes, I am enjoying getting to know Ruth Galloway. I am pretty fanatical about reading a mystery series in order of publication. I like seeing how the characters grow and am looking forward to more of these. Thanks for your encouraging comment.Delete
I second the need to read Griffiths in the correct order. What I love most about them is the very idiosyncratic narrative voice. She frequently makes me laugh out loud.ReplyDelete
Hi Alex. Yes, Ruth does have a funny way of putting things. She seems to have an easier time talking to herself or her cats than to the people she comes in contact with!Delete
I really am entranced by her cottage by the shore. Desolate. Lots of sky. Not for everyone, I am sure.
