    Any Anne Perry mystery books fans?

    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    How interesting. I've read a couple of the Thomas and Charlotte books.
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.

    Yes, I did know that. But I, too, love her books - "Monk" books are my favorite.

    Never regret growing older, its a privilege denied to many.

    This is old news. Not sure why it is being rehashed. Guess the macabre is always of interest to someone.

    I used to like her books, but I got more and more irritated that one or more of her characters would judge someone by their appearance -- like saying someone had a strong, honest jawline or that someone had a wide forehead and small nose so they must be evil -- got tired of that. Wonder if she really believes physiogamy is destiny.

    I have known about this for quite sometime. She was young, she served her time, and I think sensationalists just need to let her and the other woman be. I notice the new book has her name in the title because she is famous and the other woman isn't. I love her Monk series.

    Very, very old news and does not in any way change how much I enjoy her books. I am currently reading this year's Christmas one.
    Attending University. I will graduate a year after my son and year before my daughter.

    I also enjoy her books. I read a lot of mysteries & will have to look for more of hers at the library. Maybe they will have some of the newer ones.

    I have read many but find them now to be less interesting because they have fallen into form books. On the other hand the World War I series is marvelous. I have listened to it on CD several times. Interesting characters and a time that seems to have faded into the background under the shadow of WW II. I still recommend her for mystery lovers.

    Yes, I did know that. Shocked when I first learned it. I have read many of her books.

    I don't want my money going to the pockets of someone that committed a brutal murder and then says hey that's old news, get over it and buy my stuff.
