The Book Review: Sunday, March 16, 2014: Five Crime Novels....

Dear Readers,

Madame L is happy to share with you a link from Laura, who commented on Madame L's post about the book "Open House":

I was going to leave a list of books I've read lately, but I don't have the energy for that right now. I should probably do what you and Aunt Louise do and do a blog entry for each book. Anyway, I just stumbled on this article: http://www.themillions.com/2014/03/five-crime-novels-where-the-women-are-the-true-detectives.html?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=five-crime-novels-where-the-women-are-the-true-detectives and am going to try some of the books on this list, because I love mysteries and I love strong female characters.

Thanks, Laura. Madame L has already read one of these, Tana French's "The Likeness," and recommends it highly. Madame L will be sure to check out the rest of them because Madame L also loves mysteries and strong female characters.

That reminds Madame L: She has just finished reading another one of J.A. Jance's novels, which she found out about from Laura, and which she thoroughly enjoyed, and she will be writing a review of that book soon.

In addition, Madame L will soon be writing a review of "Learning to Fly," by April Henry, an amazing thriller with a strong woman as the main character.

Madame L likes strong female characters from empathy, not from envy. ;-)

I read one of the books from that list - "The Crossing Places," by Elly Griffiths. I had the "whodunnit" part figured out, or part of it at least, about half way in, and couldn't tell if that's because I'm getting better at discerning plot lines, or if it was a thin plot line. Either way, I enjoyed the book and liked the main character.
