I’ve been getting messages from some of you worried that I’ll never finish my list. Well, here ya are….
- Jane Eyre has been one of my most favorite books since I was around 13. I read it first in high school and loved it, then read it again in a women’s studies class in college and loved it even more. There is no book better.
- Locked Rooms by Laurie King is by far my most favorite in her Mary Russell-Sherlock Holmes series, which began with The Beekeeper’s Apprentice.
- The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins is considered to be the first “mystery” novel written. The language is a little hard to wrap yourself around because it is soooo 19th century, but the story is spooky and mysterious.
- Shattered Silk by Barbara Michaels is one of those books you read on vacation, year after year after year. Michaels’ work is very reminiscent of the old gothic romances that were published by the thousands in the 1970s. A little mystery + a little romance = a good read.
- Pope Joan by Donna Woolfolk Cross is one of those books that suck you in and before you know it, you’ve read half of it in one sitting. It’s a book that makes you wonder…
