That sounds like a series I'd enjoy. I still have the Charlotte and Thomas Pitt series and the Kurt Wallender mysteries. There's also a series set in Africa at the edge of the Kalahari, by Alexander McCall Smith. The first in the series is The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency. It's sort of a quiet mystery; my library colleagues really liked it, and I liked getting immersed in the life but I prefermore action to my mysteries--and yet I don't want them scary. smile Cindy --- Shayla Key Parker <shaylakey@xxxxxxxxx> wrote: > Hi all, > > On a friend's recommendation, I've been reading the > Kate Shugak > mystery series by Dana Stabenow, ten of which we > have on Bookshare > (the first is A Cold Day for Murder).
