  1. Oh I like the look of Carnegie’s Maid and this is my first time seeing it anywhere. Libraries here in NZ are good but not as good as in the US I suspect, however they have improved over the years. Now if they loaned out Kindle books I’d be happy but I think Kobo got in first and that was that!


  2. It appears you are off to a good start for 2018. Walking The Bones was recommended to me as was The Body In The Casket. I hope February is as good for you.
