Dear Lizzie,

The photos are gorgeous! You’re not only a terrific writer, you’re also a great shutterbug!

I dislike psychological suspense as well. I’m old school when it comes to mysteries: Sherlock Holmes, & is the author can put some humor into the book, even better. Although I do enjoy dark noir from time to time, like Dashiell Hammett or Raymond Chandler (talking about real old school), or Robert B. Parker (Spencer for Hire, easy read), I can wholeheartedly recommend a British writer, Christopher Fowler & his series of Peculiar Crime Unit with Bryant & May. Mr. Fowler writes well, infused his books with humor, the mysteries are wonderful, the characters are odd & original, & I somehow learn tons about London.
