11: A Murderous Affair Jonathan Digby

Really good mystery set in Elizabethan London. Good plot and characters, and there is definitely scope for a sequel - I hope there is one.

12: Beloved Toni Morrison

This was the March choice for the book club. I nearly escaped reading it, but the meeting was rescheduled. While I am glad I read it, I can't really say I enjoyed it. Very difficult to read, both in terms of subject matter and in the style of writing. I very much had to rush it towards the end.

13: The Tea Planter's Wife Dinah Jeffries

Lent to me by Mum. Good characters and story, although I guessed the secret/twist quite early on. I thought it gave a good sense of the time and the place.

14: Windhaven George R.R. Martin and Lisa Tuttle

Absolutely fantastic story, characters, and world creation. Couldn't put it down. Couldn't tell it was a collaboration either. Completely different to A Song of Ice and Fire, and probably all the better for that.

15: White Nights Ann Cleeves

Filling in a gap here, as I have already read books 1 and 3 in the Shetland series. I enjoyed it very much, there was a good twist in the plot too.

16: Too Good To Be True Ann Cleeves

Jumping ahead in the series now, to read a novella. Nice little plot and twist with a happy-ish ending. The character developments explain some of the decisions on the characters in the tv series.
