What I’m Reading: Maple Syrup Mysteries

Emily James writes the Maple Syrup Mysteries series, and there’s something she has done that I particularly appreciate. That is that she always makes a statement that her books are “clean reads, which is to say that she doesn’t have “swearing, gore, or steamy bedroom scenes.” I don’t need or like any of those, and often stop reading a book that includes them. Like that, they’re gone! I try to always support authors who do this… as long as they write good books.

The first book in the series is A Sticky Inheritance.

What I’m Reading: Marty Singer Mysteries

Once in a great while, I read a book – which in itself is an accomplishment, since a lot of books don’t catch my interest in the first few pages and get dumped. Sometimes something interesting happens., as I start to care about the main character, and after that I can’t stop caring and wanting to see what happens next. Marty Singer is that kind of character. Bonus: well-written books with interesting plots, and imperfect, three-dimensional characters.

The first in the series of 6 books is A Reason to Live, and that’s exactly what it’s about.
