Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries ~Books by Kerry Greenwood (No 1 ~ 12)

This dark, delightful novel takes the form of a detective story set in roughly the present, but in an alternate reality wherein there is a large population of Yiddish-speaking Jews living in Sitka, Alaska, at the sufferance of the U.S. (the state of Israel had failed to survive 1948). The audio version has an excellent reader, Peter Riegert. First Chabon novel I've read, but it won't be the last!

Set in 1874, Finch’s superb 6th mystery (after 2011’s A Burial at Sea) finds former private investigator Charles Lenox now an influential member of Parliament, resuming his "truest vocation" - detecting. Boasting one of Finch’s tightest and trickiest plots, this installment further establishes Lenox as a worthy heir to the aristocratic mantle of Lord Peter Wimsey.

Agatha Christie meets Patrick O’Brian in Finch's 5th whodunit set in Victorian England,the best in the series to date.Although aristocratic sleuth Charles Lenox has become a member of Parliament & is expecting his 1st child, his brother,Sir Edmund,close adviser to Prime Minister Gladstone,taps Lenox to undertake a delicate espionage mission to Egypt,where 5 British agents have been killed.But soon after the ship sets sail a crew member is murdered and Lenox must dust off his deductive skills.

Set in 1860s London, Finch's middling 4th mystery featuring gentleman detective Charles Lenox, finds Lenox newly married to his longtime friend, Lady Jane Grey, and newly elected to Parliament. When Ludovic Starling, a slight acquaintance, asks Lenox to look into the bludgeoning murder of his footman, Frederick Clarke, Lenox, who wonders why Starling hasn't called in Scotland Yard, at first declines. In the end, despite the demands of his new vocation, Lenox agrees to help.

The near simultaneous murders on Christmas night of two giants of Fleet Street—Daily Telegraph writer Winston Carruthers and Daily News editor Simon Pierce—rock 1866 London in Finch's absorbing third historical (after 2008's The September Society) . These sensational crimes disturb holiday festivities at the Mayfair home of amateur detective Charles Lenox, who jumps at the chance to further his crime-solving career.

The September Society, by Charles Finch, is the mystery set in Oxford and London, England during the mid-Victorian era. It is the second novel in a series featuring gentleman and amateur detective Charles Lenox.

Great Girls Your Daughter Should Know (Before she reads Twilight) -- This is seriously one of the greatest lists I've ever seen. I read almost all of those books and they made me, in part, the strong woman I am today. I cannot recommend this list enough.
