Crime Writers Caught Recommending Crime - Day 8

Canadian native Vicki Delany has two different series to her name as well as several stand alone novels. NEGATIVE IMAGE is her most recent addition to the Smith & Winters series. Despite juggling both series, Vicki still has time to read other crime writers, including fellow Canadian Mary Jane Maffini.

Vicki recommends Mary Jane's LAW AND DISORDER as a great holiday gift this year because:

"Law and Disorder is by one of Canada's funniest authors, Mary Jane Maffini. The book is set in Canada's capital city of Ottawa, a good gift for the travelers on your list. Also for your lawyer friends - lawyer jokes abound."

If you have a cozy mystery fan on your list who has a penchant for a bit of an edge, I highly recommend Karen Olson's Tattoo Shop Mysteries. This is a definite favorite of mine and it begins with THE MISSING INK. The third and most recent addition to the series is one I'll be talking about soon, DRIVEN TO INK. These books are unique, the characters are quirky and individual. The capers are just plain fun. Plus, I don't buy books for their cover art, but if I did, this is a series I'd buy for it's book jackets. Love them!

More fun to come tomorrow. Check back and be sure to leave more room on your wish list! Happy Reading.

I really enjoy Vicki Delany's books. Have finished NEGATIVE IMAGE and truly love my time in that part of the world.

I have not read Mary Jane Maffini's books yet, but she is on my list. Karen Olson's Tattoo series is on my list too. Now to find more time....

Now I'm really motivated to try Vicki Delany's books, as well as Maffini's and Olson's books.
