Lyn grew up loving books. Her favorite night of the week was Friday night, when the Bookmobile came to her neighborhood in Illinois. She’d spend those two hours chatting with the driver of the Bookmobile and the librarian and making the big decision of the week — which books to check out! In those distant days, children were limited in how many books they could check out. Lyn could only take home six a week — and there were so many to choose from. Her favorites were Cotton in my Sack by Lois Lenski, The Little House series and the One of a Kind Family series. Later, she discovered Georgette Heyer’s Regency romances!
This love of books led to a desire to write. Lyn won prizes in high school and college for her poetry and, not surprisingly, Ly

Lyn Reviews Alyssa Maxwell’s A MOST MALICIOUS MURDER!

Murder Most Malicious (A Lady & Lady's Maid Mystery, #1)Murder Most Malicious by Alyssa Maxwell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was the first book I had read by this author, Alyssa Maxwell. She is an excellent author. Great descriptions, wonderful unique characters, a dastardly murder or should I say a most malicious murder. I love Phoebe and her maid Eva. The only thing is–I am used to a story that moves more quickly. That was my only complaint. It was an

Quotes by Lyn Cote  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“What a sad world sin had caused.”
Lyn Cote, Honor

“Anger tried to boil up higher inside her. She closed her eyes, praying for God’s peace. Human wrath was against the will of God and only gave Satan influence over a soul. Honor must leave these evil men to God’s justice.”
Lyn Cote, Honor

“My mother is bold in her caused,” George said. “We have never had a runaway slave come to our door, but I too would help him. My mother and I were forced to leave North Carolina when we freed our slaves. The anger our former neighbors and friends turned on us told us much. When a person does what is right, it stirs the rage of those who will not turn from doing the same evil.”
Lyn Cote, Honor

Yes, I have been upset by the new FAKE Poirot mysteries written by another author. Agatha Christie killed off Poirot in the 70's to prevent this but obviously this wish is not being respected.

Gloria Hello Lyn sounds like you are reading some good books, I read death on the orient express quite some time ago, may have to reread it as was a very good book. I have always been an avid reader and read across many genre. I usually always have a book close to hand. I picked up a Zane Grey book at age five, asked my father to help with the first sentence and then I was off reading and have been reading ever since. I loved the Little House by Wilder, Agatha Christie Anne of Green Gables Etc when I was younger. I wish you happy reading and writing and hope all goes well for you.
