love how the author uses lots of places around Cambridge. Good characters and good plotting. Built into the East Anglican Caper. Michelle had dinner with us and went punting, and she showed us the house of Jeffrey Archer in Grantchester. Read full review

Review: Every Breath You Take (Laura Principal #1)

User Review  - Laurie - Goodreads

This was a nice page-turner mystery with actual good writing. The ending was a slight let down and the story didn't really stick with me, but I enjoyed it a lot while I was reading it, which is more than I can say for a lot of modern mystery novels. Read full review
