In a Strange City

Back to Tess Monaghan and Baltimore. This was a really good one centering around Edgar Allen Poe and his Visitor. And Tess actually had healthy relationships. Yea Tess!

New Orleans Mourning

And yet another female detective mystery series, though in fairness, this is a female policewoman story. I love New Orleans and this was a fun read. Mardi Gras plus Blue Bloods makes for an enjoying read. And I learned how to pronounce Treme in time for the new HBO series.

Murder in the Marais

Paris, Nazis, hidden collaborators and murder. What more could you want? Actually I wanted it to be a little less stilted. I kept hoping that it would turn out this was a French writer and a poor translation, but no. Nevertheless, I'll probably read at least the next in the Aimee Leduc series given my Francophilia.
