Book tastes

I like mysteries which are well written. One of my favourite authors is Louise Penny and I also like historical mysteries by Jacqueline Winspear for example. I've read everything by J.K. Rowling in both of her manifestations. I also enjoy Clerical mysteries.

Don't get this!

No political books, preferably no non-fiction, except maybe cook books or knitting books.

Other notes

Not too much swearing although that is generally not a problem with well written books.

Comments/suggestions

library_mistress: Dear Anne,

* "Seneca Falls inheritance" is part of one of my favourite librarian mystery series. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

* I saw you have several books of the Royal Spyness mysteries (as myself), and I decided to fill the gap.

* I haven't read "A Very Private Grave", I discovered it on the website http://detecs.org/ about clerical mysteries (maybe you find some reading inspiration there, I certainly did!).

* I haven't read "Murder and Poisoned Tea" either but I think the description sounds nice.

* I also wanted to send you "The fifth gospel" by Ian Caldwell, but it has a delivery period of 1-2 months which is not good for a christmas present :-)

// Dear LibraryThing elf, I rounded the prices up a little bit so that there should be no problem with exchange rate fluctuations. All the books are shipped and sold by amazon.ca. (Wed, 05 Dec 2018 10:45:07 -0500)

lorannen: Removed A Very Private Grave (1544631480)—19anne44 already has that one. Replaced with two of Santa's alternate picks, Murder in the Mystery Suite (0425265595) and A Royal Pain (042522872X).

Done. (Sun, 16 Dec 2018 19:15:58 -0500)
