    Wow. Bob white whistle. Wow. I feel like I'm 12 again.

    And I love Kellerman-but in that same vein you should read Stephen White-his hero is also a psychologist, although of adults. I started reading him because he used to live like, 20 miles from me (although a world away, financially-this was Colorado, after all.)

    When I was a lot younger, I read Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys like crazy. Those were great.

    I love Stephanie Plum and Kinsey Milhone. Might I also suggest the Elizabeth Chase series by Martha C. Lawrence. She's a great writer and Elizabeth is an interesting character... a psychic detecive. The detective work is done in a traditional way with a few psychic clues thrown in. Very well done.

    I've never heard of Martha C. Lawrence. I'm going to have to write that one down-it sounds interesting with a psychic detective.

    I grew up reading Hardy boys and Nancy Drew, Trixie Beldon (remember Honey Wheeler?). I loved them all.
    Now my faves are; Kay Scarpetta, Kinsey Milhone (she gets the snot kicked out of her in every book)
    Firegirl, I love Eve Dallas (and Peabody of course), Ben Kincaid (from William Bernhardt's series) and Nina Reilly (from Perri O'Shaughnessy's series)

    I seem to like lots of strong women .. and their sidekicks lol

    I've only read one adult mystery series before and it's the Scarpetta series by Patricia Cornwell. I love that series! Kay Scarpetta is also one of the best characters ever created by an author.

    I've also read the Andy Brazil series by Patricia Cornwell (she is my favourite author) but it isn't as enjoyable as the Scarpetta series. I don't even think you could call the Andy Brazil series a mystery series. It's more humor than anything...

    I used to love the Nancy Drew series when I was younger.

    unfortunately the only place to find Roarke is in Nora Roberts' imagination LOL, men like that don't really exist.. well ok they do but they are never that rich, never outfit a co-ordinated wardrobe, or have fast and dirty sex when you really need it

    Anyone remember Cherry Ames? Also, there was a spin-off from that book featuring a woman named Vicky, but I don't remember her last name. Cherry was a nurse, and Vicky was a stewardess. I can't believe I got rid of those books.

    Wow you hardly ever hear that name. Add to it the Bobsey Twins and Hardy Boys and of course the Nancy Drew series.... that was my beginning then on to Agatha Christie novels and I've been sucked in ever since
