A Medal For Murder (Kate Shackleton, #2) by Frances Brody

Cover of

Just as entertaining as the first in the series. Light mysteries, but you don’t have to leave your brain behind to enjoy them. Set in 1922, Kate investigates a pawnshop robbery and gets involved with a murder with its roots in the Boer War. Interesting characters, and I like the look at the Harrogate of the 20s too.

A Question of Identity by Susan Hill

Cover of

An entertaining seventh entry in the series. It took a long time to get going and these books always feel a bit like an episode of Casualty where you wait to see which of the minor characters introduced is going to get killed. I found some of the police work a bit far-fetched, but it made for an entertaining book and, who knows, it’s feasible that that might even be the way identity changes work, it just didn’t feel reasonable but there would have been no real plot if things were otherwise. The recurring cast keeps developing nicely (they are not all nice!) and I look forward to more.
