MURDER AT MEDICINE LODGE by Mardi Oakley Medawar
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: March 9, 1999

"A dense, near-impenetrable forest of plots (large and small), a confusing parade of fussily described but unmemorable characters, and a suspense-less mystery—all make for the weakest of the author's work to date."

MURDER AT THE LODGE by J.M. Gregson
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: May 1, 2003

"Another amusing procedural that makes for a lovely evening's entertainment—except, as Peach might observe, for the victim and his killer."
That bulwark of incompetence, Superintendent Thomas Bulstrode Tucker, head of the Brunton CID, sniffs a promotion to Chief Superintendent in the air—and that means a promotion as well for his detested underling, DI Percy Peach, if only the two officers can pull together in presenting their tales of mutual admiration to the Lancashire brass.

ONCE IN A BLUE MOON LODGE by Lorna Landvik
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: April 11, 2017

"A people lover's book. Characters grow and change; family and friends support each other. Predictable, but comfortably so, this refreshingly simple family tale provides a comfy diversion from the everyday world."
This sequel to Landvik's debut novel (Patty-Jane's House of Curl, 1996) reads easily as a stand-alone. A light read—not deep, but definitely wide—the story follows Ione Rolvaag's family (and friends) for two decades. Read full book review >
