Hooked on Mysteries?
What grabs you when you pick up a book? The characters? The setting? The time? Do you want to laugh out loud? Or be 'scared out of your pants'? Did you know that it isn't until the fourth or fifth book in a series that you get hooked? If you are looking for interesting (i.e. quirky) characters try Jeff Lindsay's Dexter, or Charlaine Harris' Harper Connelly. Interested in setting? Check out Grace Brophy's Italy or Karin Fossum's Norway. Laugh out loud? Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum is well known, but have you tried Deb Baker's Yooper Mystery series featuring Gertie Johnson? I don't like being scared, so which author's mystery stories frighten you?
