Murder on Embassy Row by Margaret Truman
Rate this book
Clear rating
It has been years since I've read one of Margaret Truman's "Capital Crimes mysteries." I enjoyed the previous books, but found this one a bit dark for my taste. I liked her protagonists, but never fully bonded with their quest.

I am enjoying a sultry

The Grave's a Fine and Private Place by Alan Bradley
Rate this book
Clear rating
I am a rabid fan of novels featuring precocious little girls like Flavia, so I am predisposed to enjoy all of Alan Bradley's series. But, this one got a little tedious for me--and, I can't pinpoint why. Maybe a wee too much chemical musing, maybe not ...more

Crime Czar by Tony Dunbar

Clear rating
I have spent the past few days binging on Tubby Dubonnet and thoroughly enjoyed it. As the series matures, and the recurring characters inter-mingle, Tubby has become a less admirable character.
He still has his own carefully-curated code of conduct,

Shelter From The Storm by Tony Dunbar

I am new to Tony Dunbar and Tubby Dubonnet, but I find I can not get enough of this series. I love Dashiell Hammett, Raymond Chandler and Rex Stout and I feel a little bit of each of them in Dunbar's books.

What appeals to me most is the strength of t

In my experience as a binge reader (mostly during the sultry summer months), more is most Definitely More in the Tubby Dubonnet series. Forget Mies Van der Rohe and his sage "less is more" philosophy---go ahead and read Dunbar's enjoyable books one a ...more
Trick Question by Tony Dunbar
"I love reading Tubby Dubonnet books after slogging through looooong-winded books by authors with agendas...

This is another easy read that kept me entertained and helped me relax."

It is 103 degrees outside and I am entering my couch potato binge-reading period. And, what could be more fun than a day with Tubby Dubonnet ? I suspect that I am predisposed to enjoy this series because I am just plain tickled that the protagonist's ...more

Crooked Man by Tony Dunbar
Rate this book
Clear rating
I purchased a series of five Tubby Dubonnet books on a whim---loved the idea of a New Orleans series, and I used to have a fondness for Dubonnet "blonde" as an aperitif, so. . . . here we go. I think the books sat in my "to read" que for a few years ...more

A Dangerous Engagement by Ashley Weaver

Clear rating
I love historical fiction, and light mystery series. I really enjoy following familiar characters from encounter to encounter or adventure to adventure. So a bright but prickly couple who "live the high life" but also stumble in to crime seems made t ...more
