Question of the Week: Back in the Groove

Having just spent four years on the ALA Notable Books Council, I am diving into the piles of books I've had pushed aside.  And I love catching up all the mysteries that I've missed!  But I am feeling overwhelmed and need help--give me some ideas of what a good mystery series would be for someone who has been out of the loop for a few years.

I recommend the Professor Bradshaw mysteries by Bernadette Pajer. They are set in historic Seattle.

It's not a series but a truly delighful book is "Three Bags Full" by Leonie Swann. A shepherd in Ireland is found murdered, and his sheep attempt to solve the crime. I know, I thought it was a dumb idea too -- but it's very cleverly rendered.

You didn't miss out on the Alan Bradley mysteries, did you? Flavia de Luce is a very memorable and engaging young detective-- set in 1950's England.
