Hi Ellen, I've set up a folder for you here, hope this is ok? I'll just add links to your reviews you've written already... If you've read more books than I've found in the group, comment them below :)

Broken Ground - Review https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...

Just finished #9 in the Inspector McLean series by James Oswald.
Cold As The Grave: Inspector McLean 9 by James Oswald.
Another Tony McLean filed under my favorites. James Oswald has it all. The mystery, intrigue, romance and the supernatural. My favorite characters made their selves known-Grumpy Bob, Duguid (still in the cold cases basement), and so happy to welcome back into the fold-Madame Rose in all her regalia.
Detective chief Inspector McLean and his team are stationed along Edinburgh's Royal Mile to ward off any violence. There's to be a demonstration and a police presence should be on the alert. Just as Tony's team rounds up the rowdy culprits before an outbreak he finds himself stumbling down some stairs leading to a basement. He enters easily as the door is unlocked and begins to explore an old cellar not used or decades or so he thought. Then among the litter of abandoned furniture he finds the remains of a small child...and so the story begins.
I love this series, the characters and the mystery that goes just a step above the average detective series would dare. I would like to thank Largo Public Library for ordering this book at my request from England. This series is very difficult to obtain in the States. The last one I ordered myself from England after a long wait that never let up.
If you had any doubts this is another 5 star review for a series that just doesn't quit. Thank you to the author for this hopeful ending. We've waited!

Great review, Ellen, glad you enjoyed it so much :) The murderer hunting crime writers sounds like an interesting plot...
