Good News About One of My Favorite Mystery Series!
I received some very good news from author Paul L. Gaus, who writes one of my favorite mystery series. Plume, a division of Penguin, will be reprinting his Amish-Country Mysteries in trade paperback editions.
Starting with the very first, Blood of the Prodigal, one book will be released every six months, beginning September 28.
I know there's a lot of fiction available that features the Amish, but it's easy to be led astray if you're looking for an honest depiction of the people. I grew up just a few miles from a large Amish settlement in central Illinois, and I really appreciate Paul Gaus's sensitivity and insight.
If you haven't read any of his books, I certainly hope you'll give them a try!
My Book Rating Scale:
A+...Don't delay, get your hands on a copy of this book!
A...I loved it!
B...I really liked it.
C...I liked it, with a few reservations.
D...I finished it, but it's not my cup of tea.

- Hi! I'm addicted to books (especially crime fiction), laughter and traveling off the beaten path. In my free time, when my eyes aren't glued to the printed page, one of them is usually pressed against the viewfinder of my camera. Let's see... books, laughter, travel, photography. Anything else? Oh yeah-- my dream house wouldn't have a kitchen!
