the Words part
I just discovered this morning that one of my favorite authors is publishing book 10 in her Mary Russell/Sherlock Holmes suspense series. The author is Laurie R. King and I found her books quite by accident. I was taking a computer class in between jobs about 9 years ago and the computer instructor and I started chatting about books before class. She let me borrow book 1, and I was immediately hooked. Ms. King writes with a voice very similar in style to Conan Doyle, which makes the books very enjoyable to me. She has added a twist, which is to add a new partner to the Holmes/Watson duet. If you like the Holmes genre, you will love this series. I have pre-ordered the new book on Amazon.
