l too, have been reading lots recently. Yes, Jack Reacher and Harry Bosch - and now l am hooked on Lisa Gardner books and she has a FED called Pierce Quincey - what a hero!!. After years of reading Michael Connelly/Lee Child/Patricia Highsmith -Sue Grafton - l have now become a great fan of Tess Gerittson and Lisa Gardner. Love the detective/forensic pathology books. And all of my ‘heroes’ are in my imagination - the same of course as Christian Grey. Shall be very disappointed if they make a film of them as the poor actor will never come up to my ‘hopes and dreams’. For heroines - l love all the leading female characters in all of the lsla Dewar books - wonderful Scottish author - have read them all - and each book completely different - can’t wait for her to write/publish more- no murders - little bit of romance - just intriguing people.
l got so fed up trying to find books in the public library - l now buy secondhand ones via amazon. The last two Lisa Gardners were three novels in one thick tome - all for a penny plus postage. Works out cheaper then petrol to drive to the library. And l get to pass them on to my mum and friends before giving them to a charity shop.
As l get very little sleep - l read for hours - and get to love some of these characters and can’t wait to get back to them.
For a bit of light relief l read Adele Parks books - these are more ‘holiday reading’.
