JimmyD’s staff have very different tastes in crime fiction. One of us enjoys “foreign” crime (Scandinavian in particular), one of us enjoys a good psychological thriller, and one of us is devoted to old-school detective fiction. So it is not often that we stumble across a book that all of us have read, and when we do, it is a very rare occurence indeed if all of us have enjoyed reading it.
One of the rare crowd pleasers:
‘One for the Money’ by Janet Evanovich caters for those who enjoy solid characters, those who like a bit of wit to break up the tension, and those that like to read about something a *bit* different than lawyers in a courtroom – come on, who doesn’t love a bounty hunter? Stephanie Plum is a sassy heroine with a shaky (and hilarious) love life, and the “bad guy” is such a rogue you will probably end up cheering for him.
Not to mention, Janet Evanovich has released a Stephanie Plum novel at the rate of one per year for 18 years (so far). So if you enjoy the first one, why not keep going? (Admittedly, the quality starts to slide a bit, but they are still good fun and you really don’t have to pay too much attention to the plot!)
Let us know if you need any other suggestions, or if we can help you find an author that suits your taste.
