    Thanks for sharing your review.

    Your review of the second book does not encourage me to want to read it. Would you recommend the first book?

    • Yes, I would recommend the THE THIN WOMAN for the back story. Dorothy Cannell appears to be a very popular author in the nineties. Not sure how I miss her.

    You have probably already seen them, but there are two in that series on NetGalley right now. Thanks for turning my attention to this author. I had not heard of her either.

    • I think I have them both. I have read THE SPRING CLEANING MURDERS my first one and got me started. My review is on Goodreads. I have THE TROUBLE WITH HARRIET to read yet. I have some really good books coming up. Not too many as I have this month.
