[personal profile] deltamiss
The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith (not what I expected)
The Ghosts of Belfast by Stewart Neville (interesting, but very odd)
In the Woods by Tana French (modern Irish author)
Winter Study by Nevada Barr (suspense!)
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Anne Barrows (kind of interesting - period piece)
Private by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro
Tara Road by Maeve Binchy (not Binchy's best, but a fairly good read)
Such Devoted Sisters by Eileen Goudge (meh)
Goodnight, Nobody by Jennifer Weiner (meh)
Mistress of Spices by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni (too...foreign)
Killer Market by Margaret Maron (meh)
The Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown (weird)
Broken by Karin Slaughter (typical of Slaughter, but not the best)
The Vintage Caper by Peter Mayle (NOT his best work)
Hannah's List by Debbie Macomber (contrived)
The Rossetti Letter by Christi Phillips (fairly interesting)
84, Charing Cross Road by Helene Hanff (ok)
Rose's Garden by Carrie Brown (meh)
The Ghost by Robert Harris (great spy stuff)
Blue Plate Special by Frances Norris (don't bother)
A Fall From Grace by Robert Barnard (VERY British - idioms, places, etc.)
Any Man's Death by Loren Estelman (very noir - Sam Spade dialogue!)
Heart and Soul by Maeve Binchy (another good one - Binchy makes me want to visit Ireland!)
The Charm School by Nelson DeVille (Oh boy, did this book rake up some memories. Terrific spy thriller!)
Drowning Ruth by Christina Schwartz (lots of death - accidental and otherwise)
The Lost Garden By Helen Humphreys (VERY odd...not sure I liked this one at all)
The Likeness by Tana French (Implausible characterization but worth the read)
Summer's Lease by John Mortimer (weak and silly)
The Things They Carried by Time O'Brien (interesting, but somehow I missed that this was fiction...duh)
Just Take My Heart by Mary Higgins Clark (OMGOSH! I'd forgotten how contrived her plots are!)
A Bad Day for Sorry by Sophie Littlefield (give it up for middle aged women with missions...revenge!)
Down River by John Hart (not bad)
The Gold Coast by Nelson Demille (another home run!)
Spoken From the Heart by Laura Bush (I've always admired the Bush women, but she tended toward politics in the end)
Graveminder by Melissa Mar (I still don't like fantasy - zombies either)
The Snowman by Jo Nesbo; translated by Don Bartlett (very suspenseful but took too long to resolve conflict - written by a Norweigian - or Dane - or Swede???)
Plum Island by Nelson Demille (Good, but not as good as The Gold Coast)
A Dangerous Fortune by Ken Follett (awful...long and awful)
