I've mentioned before that one of the great things about blogging has been the people I've met. One of those people is Larry J. from Wisconsin. I get to see Larry when I go up for Murder and Mayhem in Muskego and we exchange emails now and again. He's an absolutely delightful man and it's so fun to talk books with him. He was kind enough to put together a list of his recommendations of "If you like this...you should read...."
He told me that he personally likes all the authors on this list and he hopes it will help folks find a new author to check out. So, here we go.
