There is a lot of variety here but all of these are worth a look. The Shell Seekers is a grand family saga; it is a book that I return to when I want to find a sense of calm and escape. Among the Mad is part of the Maisie Dobbs series; these are best read in order, although all are good. The series begins in WWI and has now progressed to WWII. The books are mysteries. Silent is the Grave is the start of a mystery series; it is slightly unconventional. The Red Notebook is French and has been on my TBR stack for ages. A Terrible Beauty is part of a series; I have not read this one but have blogged on two others about Lady Emily. Dead Water is part of the Jimmy Perez series; readers of the blog know that I LOVE this series. Wings of Fire is part of Charles Todd’s historical mystery series that is set in the aftermath of WWI.. Charles Todd is a mother-son writing duo. Unnatural Death is part of the Lord Peter Wimsey series; these novels are from the golden age of mystery and are indeed golden. Baltimore Blues is the first in the Tess Monahan mystery series; the protagonist is a Baltimore reporter. Aftermath is part of the Detective Banks, English mystery series.
Happy exploration are reading, all!
