It was pure genius to set the Isaac Bell mysteries at the beginning of the 20th century. The rate of change, and the energy and enthusiasm are infectious.
The romance between Isaac and Marion is uncomplicated, which is a nice change from most fiction.
If you are looking for nuance and dark, conflicted characters, you will be disappointed.
Otherwise, catch a plane, go for a walk or bike ride, put on your headphones, and enjoy.
P.S. Justin Scott's work in the Ben Abbott series is worth a look.
