Dawn, as often as I run across your messages here, I can see we like a lot of the same authors! I agree, I think Jacobs is one of the best new writers I've found.

I know you also like Jill Churchill; have you tried Sophie Dunbar, Anne George and Aaron Elkins (either when he writes by himself or when he writes with his wife Charlotte)?

I agree. I just finished Murder Among Us (her latest and the first book I had read by her) and really liked it. Got her other 2 books out of the library for this series (Kate Austen) 'Murder among neighbors' and 'Murder among friends'. Reminds me of the Christine Bennett series from Lee Harris. (Amatuer sleuths...)

sorry it took me so long to respond. Somehow a bunch of my links got killed. I kept wondering why I wasn't getting messages. I just thought no one was posting anymore!

No I've not tried them. Will have to keep an eye out. Always love finding new authors.

Read all 3 of the Kate Austen series that are available at this time and all were very good.Have started on the first of the Kali O'Brien series: Shadown of Doubt.

If you like Johnnie Jacobs, which I do, then you will like a book I just finished this weekend. "Missing Marlene", by Evan Marshall. Read it Iam sure you will enjoy it. Happy Reading!!!!!

Her books are really good. Can someone tell me: is Kali's name supposed to be pronounced like Callie (rhyming with Sally) or Kay-lee (rhyming with Hayley)? I hate it when I don't know.
