Reading...Mignon G. Eberhart

"Alpine Condo Crossfire", a murder mystery set in a condo community. The main reason the book interested me was because of the setting and because I was told that my grandmother liked this author.
It was actually a decent mystery, it is a very clean mystery, the language is clean, no gore, no explicit language or topics. So if you are tired of the garbage that you find in a lot of current books this may be a refreshing change. I believe the book was written in the 70's. The thing that was funny to me is that the book was talking about the benefits of living in a condo association. I guess in the 70's that was an exclusive community and probably pretty nice. Knowing what I know about condominiums though it stuck me as funny.

'til next time...

  1. Oddly, I thought she lived before the days of condos, but I must have gotten her mixed with someone else. Maybe Josephine Tey or Patricia Wentworth, which seem somewhat similar. I like both those authors for a light but literate read.


I love to read your comments...
