I have really enjoyed the WWI series; I think it is my favorite.

I got rather tired of the Pitt series when the books began to focus on "The Inner Circle". I would not say that the Monk books are darker. Actually, I like all of her books.

Cindy,

Actually, the munk series deals with the lower and upper classes. You might try one and see if it doesn't fit your tastes. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Cindy" <popularplace@xxxxxxxxx>

Yes, I would put the Otto Penzler books in parentheses next to the title since it is that way on Amazon. It may or may not be the start of a new series, so I wouldn't put a number. The synopses, short and long, will tell people what it's about,i.e., what age group.

Are you the one who adds the age group to the book? It's so helpful to me. As you know, I've been doing that, and when a lot of books are added, like today, it's time consuming. Fortunately, I'm familiar with children's and juvenile and young adult authors, and sort of sense from titles what might be in one of those categories, though I have been wrong on occasion--but looking them up takes time. I've finally gotten smart, though, and made a list of the various series so now all I have to do is look at my list. If you are the one who has been adding that info, as I say, it certainly has been helpful.

A Dish Taken Cold sounds very interesting, and I'm going to request it soon. I love her Pitt series; I haven't read the Monk books because I hear they're darker and deal with a different social class. I love reading about the upper classes. smile. I also haven't read her WWI series--or is it WWII--I didn't realize until someone told me recently that they are mysteries; I thought they were just stories. But I prefer books set further back in time, and A Dish Taken Cold, set during the French Revolutionary period, sounds interesting to me. And she is such a good writer.

Cindy, Thanks so much for this information. From what you
read, do you think
I should put the information in parentheses as part of the
title if Mary
Anne didn't? I frankly couldn't quite decide what
age group this book was
written for and it was certainly in no way typical of other
Anne Perry
books.
