Love fiction--classic to light, serious to comedic. Selective non-fiction. These days lots of mysteries (not too violent, please :-)

  • "Engaging story with very good narra..."

    Story

    I really like the Kate Shackleton series, written by Frances Brody. This takes place in rural English post WWI period, and Kate, a widow, is one of the women who are moving into new positions in society by becoming a detective. (Her father is a policeman, so it sort of is a natural move for her.) In fact, this series is much like the Masie Dobbs books--which have a similar setup.

    In this book, Kate is awakened by a woman in the middle of the night, who tells her that her husband is missing. She says that her daughter and son went to the quarry where he worked to take him his meal, and that the daughter was certain she found her father dead there. But when a group of people (including the police) went to search for him, his body was missing. Because they had had a slight quarrel before he left for work, everyone else believes he has just taken off--and the daughter was mistaken about what she saw. However Kate believes Mary Ann and Harriet--mostly because of the situation as she investigates it for herself, and partially because the introduction of this woman into her life has just opened a family door and connections she never knew about. The various threads of this book are both interesting and touching.

    I don't really know what exact genre this new trend toward women detectives emerging with new roles into post WWI society, combined with a good mystery, might be called. They seem a bit more than cozies to me--because they are filled with interesting information about the times, good insights about the transitions women are making, as well as being good mysteries. Whatever one might call them, I'm enjoying seeing women be depicted as capable and independent during a time when there was so much social upheaval going on. I particularly enjoy this series--and liked this book (and it's narration) very much.

    Young Harriet and her brother Austin have always been scared of the quarry where their stonemason father works. So when they find him dead on the cold ground, they scarper quick smart and look for help. When help arrives, the quarry is deserted and there is no sign of the body. Were the children mistaken? Is their father not dead? Did he simply get up and run away? It seems like another unusual case requiring the expertise of Kate Shackleton. But for Kate this is one case where surprising family ties makes it her most dangerous and delicate yet.

    What did you like best about The 39 Clues, Book 1? What did you like least?

    It was a fun listen but when we saw it was 5 hours, we were shocked. The book just ended what I would say was about 1/3 of how long one of these books should be. Seems like you'd be into the series over $100 and no end in sight.

  • "Perfect Mystery for young and old!"

    4 of 4 helpful votes

    I purchased this audible book for my 8,6, and 4 year old grandchildren and I to listen to on a long trip. They loved it! I had to keep checking to see if they were asleep because they were so quiet. I learned just how interested they were when I turned the book off during heavy traffic, so I could concentrate more on my driving. They began playing, quarreling, and doing all the things they normally would do had we not been listening to the book. As soon as we returned to the car after a stop, they were all telling me to turn their book back on.
    The reader did a awesome job of changing voices with the characters. She really made it seem as if we were seeing the performance in person with lots of different actors.

    Although the book was originally written for young teens or pre-teens even before I was born, it was still enjoyable for an old lady of 60 like me as well as my grandchildren. I would definitely recommend it to others.

Thousands of Euros left to dry-splattered with someone’s blood. Lumikki lives alone in a studio apartment far from her parents and the past she left behind. She transferred into a prestigious art school, and she’s singularly focused on studying and graduating. Lumikki ignores the cliques, the gossip, and the parties held by the school’s most popular and beautiful boys and girls.
