Now that I have suspended my hang-up over reading in the daytime, I returned to the used bookstore (McKay's) in Chattanooga and had a field day. Dave and I were having our date day, bowling first, (I broke 100!) and then he dropped me off at the bookstore while he browsed at Northern Tool. I had two coupons and luck was with me. I found several authors who had eluded my search in the past.
So excited to find two by Julian Fellows, creator of Downton Abbey, and since I love love loved Gone Girl, I wanted to read more by author Gillian Flynn.
Lynda LaPlante is my new fave, creator of Prime Suspect (Helen Mirren) which I am currently rewatching on Netflix. And Ian Rankin created the Rebus series, also on Netflix. Love a good mystery/crime/thriller. Obviously
I am a little obsessed with Robert B. Parker and his continuing characters, so altho some of these will be rereads, I am happy to be in his entertaining sphere.
Agatha Raisin is very light, but like sorbet, a good treat between heavy bouts of gore.
Some of these were under a dollar and one was a big $12.00. I will return these and get a chit to buy more, so even the expensive ones end up being a great trade.
