    Re: What are you reading?

    Thanks Bearcata!
    Have read all the above, (well not the 3 in one books because they're just composites of the first 9); plus the early Romance novels:
    The Grand Finale, Thanksgiving, Foul Play, Manhunt, Love Overboard, Back to the Bedroom, Smitten, Wife For Hire, The Rocky Road to Romance, & Naughty Neighbor.
    But, they are not "Stephanie Plum". I was trying to figure out what the original Stephanie Plum reference was other then the above listed SP books.

    Was there something else that I missed?

    I think I'm now about # 281 on the list of holds at the library.
    Janet Evanovich has a bunch of Excerpts from Finger Lickin Fifteen along with her books.

    Plum Lovin, Plum Lucky, etc. are the between the numbers books. The original Stephanie Pum series begins with One for the Money and is up to Finger Lickin Fifteen. I've seen her numerous times at our Book Festival. Janet E. is an older version of Stephanie Plum.

    Don't think so, I think it was just the way the post was worded. I got all my references from Evanovich's website.

    Knight's Fork by Rowena Cherry.

    Another in her Tigron Empire series. This author uses a lot of chess terms and gambits in her stories. Bit of a comtempory romance with aliens. Her dialog is very witty but I find I have to read quite slowly and carefully to get it. Very British sense of humour and wordplay. Still quite fun.

    Bloody Good
    by Georgia Evans.

    The first of a trilogy set in 1940's Brytewood, England. A small village a day's travel away from London. Very much your PBS setting for a Miss Marple mystery, but in this case the Germans are using vampires as saboteurs and it's up to the local doctor to stop them. The feel and dialog is very period.

    I just checked out the newest Greg Iles book The Devil's Punchbowl, from the library. I have enjoyed reading his other books and I'm looking forward to starting this one.

    Thanks! That sounds right my alley, it's just my cup of tea... (Add the cliche of your choice.)

    Reminds of a series I just recently discovered, by Jacqueline Winspear. The first one is called Maisie Dobbs, and it's a mystery/detective type of series set in the London area in the 1930s. Like the above, they have a very period feel. The fallout of the horror of World War I and the loss of most of a generation of young men permeates the action. There are 6 so far in this very well written series, the first 5 in paperback. I've read the first two.

    No vampires or other supernatural beings, though...
