    Looks like you should reach your yearly challenge by the end of September. I’m about 20 books behind you YTD, with a slightly more aggressive goal of 200 books. I liked Tagged for Death, but haven’t read others in the series yet. I’ve read all of the Molly Malone books and am anxiously awaiting another volume. From all the good recommendations, I think I’m going to have to start reading the Royal Spyness and Maggie Hope series. Have you read any of Maisie Dobbs or Jade del Cameron? I can give them both very good testamonials.


    1. No I haven’t read the Maisie Dobbs and the Jade del Cameron series and the more I read in the historical mystery sub-genre the more I love it. The Royal Spyness series is absolutely amazing, you won’t regret it!
