~*our cosy little circle of book obsessed souls*~
Just finished another historical crime story "A rare Interest in Murder" by Ann Granger. I already read her Markby and Mitchell-series and was delighted to see that she got into the historical crime-scheme now. I think it is a nice book, though nothing spectacular, the idea is not really new... It is situated in London 1864 and the station St. Pancras is just built. I like reading historical books about places I know. Of course it is only fiction, but nevertheless it is fun. As in most of these books of this time the female main character is a bit exeptional, a free mind not sticking to the traditional role, otherwise the whole plot would not work ;)
At the end of the book there is an ad for a book by Susanna Gregory, called "A plague on both your houses". It is situated in medieval Cambridge and I was thinking about buying it. But there is a review at Amazon that definately does not recommend it. So I wonder whether anyone of you has read it already?? Or anything else by S. Gregory? It is a complete series about Dr. Bartholomew, but there is only one in German, yet.
Anyway, I will turn to read another Inspector Jury (Martha Grimes) now. It is "Winds of Change" but I just found out that there are two more out already, so more to be read :)
