What a great list!
Although I've completed my Malone mystery series, I wanted to mention that the main character and her family are about as Irish as they come – but, as far as I know, I don't have a drop of Irish blood in my veins. :).
Too funny about the Irish blood, Patricia. 🙂 I added book #5 of the Malone series to the list, thanks! The link will take the readers to the rest of the series as well.
Thank you, Patti! I should probably mention that my publisher has reduced the eBook price of all five Malone mysteries to 99 cents each for a limited time.
Thanks for letting us know! 🙂
