nomadreader (Carrie D-L) (nomadreader) | 2 comments I'm planning to read either the second DI Helen Grace pick, Pop Goes the Weasel, or the first Det. Eloise Norton, Land of Shadows.

Barbara (barbara_b) | 13 comments I am planning to read an instalment in Karin Slaughter's Grand County series, as the MC in there, Sara Linton, is kind of a detective, alongside her boyfriend, the local chief of police.

Daena | 1 comments I am going to start the Dublin Murder Squad series: Into the Woods or The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie.

Kelly (kelly72401) I've got some longer books in my list, so this one was a bit shorter and also fit in with a PopSugar challenge:
The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency

Nastassja Power (nastassja02) | 6 comments I’m either going to read book 10 of the women’s mixer club or Pop Goes the weasel. Or I might find something else.

Kelli (ukyprincesskelli) Any suggestions on a stand alone - trilogy?

I’ve been looking online and most female detective books are long series. I’m starting Outlander and Game of Thrones this year so I can’t afford to get invested in a long series! 🤣

Any suggestions would be appreciated!!!

I really enjoyed The Dime by Kathleen Kent. While this COULD turn into a series, so far as I can see this is the only book by the author about this particular character so far!!

Amanda (tnbooklover) Does Stalking Jack the Ripper work for this?

I am thinking Dublin Murder Squad too. I have a couple on my shelf.

I think I'm going to finally read Into the Woods for this one. It has been on my list forever!


message 18: by Kelli (new)

Kelli (ukyprincesskelli) Would this one count?

It’s about female agents that go missing and a lead female character that sets out to find them. Which could be detective-ish? 🤔

Anne ✨ Finds Joy (annefindsjoy) I'm thinking about reading Veronica Mars book 1 for this prompt! I loved the tv series, have never read the books...

Margie (Bookzombie) (bookzombie08) | 52 comments I have a number of female detective series ongoing, but I think I'm going to read Land of Shadows as it is on my physical shelf.

Yes, I think that one works. We are okay with women thrown into "detecting" as well as people with a more formal detective position.


message 22: by Melissa (new)

Melissa (irishcontessa) I'm super torn between a few books that have been on my TBR for a while that would fit this prompt. The Kopp Sisters, Gaslight Mysteries, or the Lady Sherlock series - all look really good and I'm having a hard time deciding which one to go with for this challenge!

Yes! If you get the audio, Kristen Bell narrates. It definitely adds to the enjoyment.

willaful | 7 comments A Nice Class of Corpse is fun. It is the start of a series, but honestly, all the books are just like the first one, so there's no need to read on. :-)

willaful | 7 comments I just read A Study in Charlotte, a YA book about the descendents of Holmes and Watson in boarding school. (Holmes is Charlotte Holmes.) Very interesting characterizations.
