If you’re kind enough to read this blog on a regular basis, you’ll know that I don’t do book reviews. There are others a lot better qualified than I am to do that. But I do enjoy talking about books, especially with other book lovers. That’s one thing I love about the book blogging community.
Nearly five years ago, the book blogging community lost one of its dear friends, Maxine Clarke. As a way of remembering Maxine, and the contributions she made to the community, Bill Selnes at Mysteries and More From Saskatchewan made a terrific suggestion. It was his idea that different crime fiction bloggers would contribute reviews of fine crime fiction they’d read to Petrona Remembered, a rich resource for crime novels. I’m proud to say I’m contributing today.
Please pay me a visit at Petrona Remembered, where I’ll explain why I think Maxine would have really enjoyed Caroline Overington’s Sisters of Mercy. Then, if you’re so inclined, please consider contributing a review of one of your own top crime fiction reads. Maxine always liked to hear about the books people were enjoying.
