I'm reading "The Resident Patient" by PD James. Can't wait for the next knitting mystery by Maggie Sefton to come out! Keep on knitting!. A balanced diet is a peanutbutter cookie in each hand!

I'm just going to say, and I hope I don't step on toes, but I do not like PDJames, because the endings of her mysteries are cheating.

SPOILERS

I started to read her mysteries years ago, because she seemed so popular, and also watched the dramatizations on our local PBS, but, found her killers to be - always - psycho. Not very inovative.

The books are well written. Enjoyed the plots, sorry, not the conclusions. Doesn't she have an editor??

Ouch! hehehe.. I've read most of PD James, and liked them.

The author I got sick and tired of is Elizabeth George - an excellent writer, too, but so very bloody and so many psychos!

I, too, like PD James and love the PBS versions.

How about PBS and Peroit?? That, too, is great. And this from one who hasn't watched TV for a year or two or three ...

I am listening to the Maggie Hope series set in London in WWIi. I had to stop llistening at night. It is vivid, not graphic. She is trained as a spy to fight the Nazis. Real world figures are woven into the plot.
