Dreaming Spies (Mary Russell and Sherlock Holmes, #13) by Laurie R. King

Cover of

One of those series where I know I’m pretty much going to love the story no matter whether it’s actually any good or not. And fortunately it isn’t losing it yet. This story takes Russell and Holmes off to Japan by boat for the first half of the story, and then back to Oxford for the second. A nice balance of home and away with some great characters along the way.

Long Way Home by Eva Dolan

Cover of

I’m delighted to find a fabulous new mystery series. Great story and characters that don’t feel like a rehash of something that I’ve read before. Nice to find some cops in the UK who aren’t misanthropic old men with failing relationships. Yes, I’ve enjoyed plenty of stories of misanthropic old men with failing relationships! I’m just ready for something else. The only thing I can mark this down for is for having a prologue that I didn’t see the point of, and didn’t realise where it came in the story until I got to the end and flicked back to it. Apart from that it was top class. I’m looking forward to more.
