I recently enjoyed Maggie Estep's mystery series set in the world of horse racing.
All were excellent reading.
Maggie had a very different voice. I say 'had' because she recently died on Feb 12, 2014 at the relatively young age of 50. Sad.
I also finished Kerry Greenwood's mystery series featuring a character I adore - Corrina Chapman.
Cooking the Books
Corrina Chapman is a plus-size baker / mystery solver who loves herself just as she is. As does her gorgeous lover, Daniel. Wonderful characters, plots. Can't praise this series enough.
Must warn you though - it has passages which are hard core food porn.
Greenwood is working on a new Corrina Chapman but she is a busy woman. She is also the author of the Phyrnee Fisher murder mystery series which was made into a thoroughly enjoyable tv show in Australia where Greenwood is from. You can watch the series on Netflix.
Last but not least I am enjoying a re-read of Sarah Wynde's series set in Tassamara, FL.
A Gift of Ghosts
A Gift of Thought
The Spirits of Christmas
A Gift of Time
The characters are still flawed, quirky and lovable the second time around.
Love a series I can enjoy more than once!
