Isn’t it terrific when you find a book series that totally captures you and carries you away for the time you spend reading it? That happened to me starting in November when I began reading Deborah Crombie’s mystery series with her two detectives, Duncan Kincaid and Gemma James. I have just finished the last book (so far!) in the series, book #18, and now hoping there will be another new book in this series before too long!
Here are some of the reasons I enjoyed this series so much:
- The two main characters are two decent, kind, and talented people who grow and change over time. The story of their relationship, and the life they put together as working parents, is as riveting as the mysteries they solve. I like both characters very much!
- Compelling mysteries to be solved by these two talented detectives.
- Very consistent writing all the way through the series. Eighteen books, one after another, and all of them were really well done.
- These stories are also great as audiobooks.
I am very happy to hear that Deborah Crombie is working on book #19! In the meantime, I am ready for another reading adventure…if I can find one as good as this one!
