Cuddle up with one of my favorite bloggers as they share with you
their favorite Book Couple and their book.
The Couple and The Book…
I’ve loved mysteries for as long as I can remember. As a kid, I was hooked on Encyclopedia Brown and Usbourne Mysteries. In high school, I traded Joan Lowery Nixon’s books with my friends. Now, I can’t get enough of cozy mysteries and psychological thrillers.
One series I always find myself returning to is the Death on Demand mystery series by Carolyn G. Hart.
The protagonist, Annie, runs an independent mystery bookstore on a small island. Because of Annie’s profession, established mystery authors are frequently referenced. Entire books are centered around a celebration for Agatha Christie’s birthday, or a class about great female mystery writers.
And then there is the burgeoning romance, developed and solidified over every book in the series. Max is confident, almost cocksure, having grown up in a world of wealth and privilege. Annie is determined, headstrong, and fiercely independent. What might seem as a clash of egos and a recipe for disaster instead becomes a tender, loving attraction that readers get to watch develop from the very first meeting.
What I especially love is that Annie and Max are very much their own people. They weren’t looking for someone to complete them. In each other, they found an equal partner, someone who supported them and didn’t try to change them.
Plus, they’re an amazing team at solving the trickiest mysteries!
