Kerrie at Mysteries in Paradise has set up this meme. To participate just write a post about the best new-to-you crime fiction authors (or all) you’ve read in the period of January to March 2013. After writing your post link HERE and visit the links posted by other participants to discover even more books to read.
So far this year I’ve read crime fiction books by 2 new-to-me authors, both books being the first in a series:
- The Redemption of Alexander Seaton by Shona MacLean – a fantastic book, historical crime fiction, full of atmosphere and well-drawn characters. A book with the power to transport me to another time and place. I hope to read more of MacLean’s books. I found this book by accident, as it were, in my local library.
- Death at Wentwater Court by Carola Dunn – the first in the Daisy Dalrymple series. It’s a quick and easy read, a mix of Agatha Christie and PG Wodehouse, set in 1923 at the Earl of Wentwater’s country mansion, Wentwater Court. I first came across the Daisy Dalrymple books in other book blogs. This is an enjoyable book, but not one to overtax the brain, but interesting enough to get me reading more in the series.

Margaret – I’m glad you’ve been introduced to the Alexander Seaton series. I think it’s a terrific historical series and I’m so glad you enjoyed your introduction to it.
Daisy sounds like an interesting combo, Christie and Wodehouse.?
I do love Daisy Dalyrmple for some escapism. I can imagine good old Bertie popping up somewhere!
