Okay, here I am again, the one with the family with strict criteria for entertainment!
My MIL has finished viewing the DVDs she received for Christmas and is wanting recommendations for books. She likes murder mysteries, but nothing too gory. I came across two M.C. Beaton’s series (Agatha Raisin and Hamish MacBeth) and they look good (I’ve never read them) but before I think about recommending them to Mom, I need to know:
- any sex?
- how graphic are the murders?
I wish I had the time to read a few myself, but I have a backlog of reading to do (school and work) and I’m putting my own “reading for pleasure” on a backburner, so if anyone can give me an idea or opinion about these books, I’d appreciate it. Mom’s birthday is in a few days, so it would be nice to surprise her, if I can.
For reference purposes, she never misses anything by Mary Higgins Clark (and some of THOSE she finds too detailed, as far as the mind of the killer goes) or Aimee and David Thurlo’s “Sister Agatha” series. She’s also read Joanne Fluke’s “Hannah Swenson” baking mysteries. Just checking to see if M.C. Beaton falls in that category!
