Kindred in Death (Robb) and Grave Secret (Harris)

January 6, 2010

Here are two of my favorite series/authors. Funny, but I don’t like Nora Roberts’ books but I love J.D. Robb’s “in death” series. That isn’t the only combo like that either. Love J.R. Ward but Jessica Bird is only ok. Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum books are a hoot but her romances are pretty awful. . . .

At this point, with book 30, and this time of year (the holidays) Robb’s in death series reminds of an annual holiday letter . . . great way to catch up with an old friend. It’s been more than a year since I’ve read one – and it is clear I missed at least one from references to one character’s situation in this latest book – and it was nice to catch up.

Re: Charlaine Harris. I just love her writing. I haven’t read any of the Aurora Teagarden mysteries (there’s just too much else on my plate and cozy mysteries haven’t rung my bell yet) but I love the rest of Harris’ series (Sookie Stackhouse, Shadespeare and “Grave” with Harper Connelly and Tolliver). Although I had really weird dreams last night after finishing Grave Secret. . . .

Next up: A is for Alibi by Sue Grafton.
