My sister and I were discussing mystery books and we are a wee bit different. While I like to figure out whodunit, my sister thinks that if she figures it out it was too easy. As in the plot was not complicated enough, or at least that is what I understood. Her taste seems to differ a bit from mine too but that could be because I'm new to mysteries.
I've picked up a couple of new ones from the library, "A Royal Pain" by Rhys Bowen and "Sick of Shadows" by Marion Chesney. They are the second and third books in two different series. Maybe I can reroute some of my knitterly urges this way till my Christmas books make it here. Yeah, I don't think it will work either but it is worth a try.
