Mysteries Rock!

What are  YOU reading this summer?  How about joining our Adult Genre Challenge at the Maud Marks Library?  This week we are reading MYSTERIES!  Why read a mystery?  Mysteries examine human nature, probing the why, the who and how. Justice is at the heart of the solution in a mystery. When "legal justice" is not an option, investigators take the law into their own hands. Readers expect the good guys to win and the bad guys to be punished.  Detectives run the gamut from amateur detectives and snoops to seasoned police detectives and hard-boiled private investigators.

Outta Sight!

Grave SightI’m sure many of you are familiar with Harris’ Sookie Stackhouse/ Southern Vampires series. Now, I do love a good vampire story as much as the next person, but I was in my ‘burn-out’ stage with paranormal fiction When I came across the Harper Connelly books. When this series was recommended to me by a friend, I was hesitant about reading it.

Murder Most British

I blame Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Dame Agatha Christie. It’s all their fault. They took a genre and, through hard work and talent, made it into a worldwide obsession. I’m speaking, of course, of British mysteries.
