Couple and Book

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!

  1. Ah, cozy mystery is a genre I’ve not ventured into much. Which is funny since I too enjoyed Encyclopedia Brown as a kid and then graduated to Agatha Christie. 🙂 I’ll have to check out this series – it’s really appealing since Annie runs a bookstore and is so headstrong. She and Max do seem like a great, if unlikely, couple.

  2. I’ve been reading more cozies and even have a few psychological thrillers on my list, which is kinda new for me. Nice post- these look like fun. I love the idea of an indie bookstore devoted to mysteries- we have one of those in a town a few hours away and it’s awesome to go in there and see all msyteries all the time. 🙂
