I wanted more from this one than it was able to get around to. Overall, an interesting overview of a horrendous crime, but I didn‘t care for the retellings. #campandread

I can‘t get enough of Elly Griffiths. These are super fast reads for me! Each story is interesting and you get to know her characters a little more in every book.

Our local coroner owns a funeral home. As far as I know, the position has never been filled with a medical professional. This book delves into the political and personal repurcussions of a budget-constrained set in it's ways system, and how it failed it's citizens. Listening on Audible.

After stumbling upon a Charlie Parker novel midway through the series, I found myself on ThriftBooks ordering every single one of the books so that I could read them in order. I love this series!

LiteraryLona This one focused more on Louis and Angel, not a lot of Parker. It was still good though! 13mo
