Glad to see the Harry Potter up there, I thought it was marvellous.
I'm interested to see what you make of the Ngiao Marshes, she was a favourite of mine. I used to own all her books but they have been given away somewhere along the moves in my life. Pity, as I don't think they are in print any more, and I'd rather like to read them all again.

Fascinating. I too have a real love of mysteries. I have a penchant for the cozy variety, although I sometimes I should be - as a guy - be reading more hardboiled stuff.
I must confess I don't do as much reading as I used to and I give up too many books. I've just given up 'Clouds of Witness' by Dorothy Sayers after 60 pages or so. But I did finish Ian Rankin's latest!
Have you read any of Anthony Eglin's mysteries? They are very much in the English cozy mode, with a gardening theme. He's written three so far, starring retired botany professor Lawrence Kingston. Worth checking out.Best wishes.
