Death on the Aisle: A Mr. & Mrs. North Mystery | Frances Lockridge, Richard Lockridge
Bailedbailed

DNF. The tone was too light and arch for me (dialogue that wants to be "sparkling"), the amateur sleuths had zero reason to be there, and there were too many suspects and too little reason to care why the person was murdered. Also, some shocking fat-shaming.

#uglylocationchallenge (graffiti wall in town within a few blocks of where I work). Also, this series is intense. There is trigger warnings of uncomfortable topics, but the two main characters are a blast to read about, and you can't help but admire the mastery of the unsub. Also, hello cliffhanger. #recentlyread #nospoilers #mysteryfiction #unsub #profiling #serialkiller #toughread #seriesfiction 😮⚠️🔞🤔🖤

A rival agency, some interesting money making schemes, and a fascinating man with a conscience. Also, the development of an interesting romance. All handled with the alacrity and wisdom of the great Precious Ramotswe. #recentlyread #nospoilers #femaledetective #seriesfiction ❤️🖤👌📖🔍

Soubhiville Yay! I love these books! Do you read any of his other series? 10mo
ruskigurl16 @Soubhiville I haven't. Is there any books in particular that you would recommend? 10mo
Soubhiville I really liked the Portuguese Irregular Verbs set- there are just 4, and they‘re very very short. They follow a professor who manages to misread all social situations, and fumbles up pretty much everything he gets involved with. I thought they were hilarious. I haven‘t tried any of his others yet. 10mo

The story continues. New mysteries, new challenges and new philosophical dilemmas to be faced. Still the same enjoyable level of humor and unique style of writing, still the gorgeous setting, and with further character development. A gem of a series. #recentlyread #nospoilers #femaledetective #dilemma #beautifulsetting #seriesfiction

Atmospheric, emotionally charged, and fairly fast paced. The insights regarding the characters were very deep, and I can see how the detective and his partner are so popular. Furthermore the setting was very, very interesting and it did keep me guessing until the end. #recentlyread #recommendsday #mystery #seriesfiction #CIGamache
