We talk about her new book “Scorched Grace” and crime writing trends
My favorite is Kinsey Milhone from the ABC series by Sue Grafton. I love a mystery before computers. I think she was an original badass!
My favorites are Maisie Dobbs and Armand Ganache
I think after Nancy Drew, my entry into detective books of any kind were the Stephanie Plum books by Janet Evanovich. She's a bounty hunter but more often than not felt like a detective from my perspective. I'm really excited to read 'Scorched Grace' since I have read any detective books in a while.
This is basic but I started with Miss Marple and I am also an avid knitter who is deeply nosy and there's a reason she has stuck around.
I like Louise Penny's Detective Gamache. And I can't wait to read Scorched Grace because it reminds me of my friend I lost to cancer. She was a queer nun and a remarkable lady.
My favorite fictional detective -- and the reason I am such a mystery reader to this day -- is Laura Lippman's Tess Monaghan. I love her so damn much.
A detective I love is Vera Stanhope.
Great interview! Such a fun book.
I’m a fan of Chesterton’s Father Brown. He’s an unexpected character too, as someone who is innocent but not simple or naive. The stories are always a good laugh. Scorched Grace sounds awesome.
Three way tie between Nancy Drew, Maisie Dobbs, and Kinsey Milhone.
My favorite fictional detective is Enola Holmes.
I love the Clare Fergusson series (as well as Armand gamache and Maisie dobbs). Clare is so flawed and faithful and trying to do good.
My favorite fictional detective is Harbinder Kaur.
I've read Scorched Grace and it's great!
This book sounds great, and what a cover! I'm a fan (always) of Armand Gamache, but something about this interview is reminding me of Laura Lippman's Tess Monaghan books, too.
My favourite detectives are Rebus, VI Warshawski, Miss Marple
