I haven’t said much about any books I have read over these three/four months. Since I have some time now, might as well get it written down. I picked up Faith Martin’s DI Hillary Greene books on Kindle Unlimited because it had a female detective and it was a series and you know how I love female based bad-ass characters and a good mystery and detective story. It was a lovely combination to not give it a go. Never did I think that I will be hooked on it once I start it. Whenever I had some time for myself, I had two options: to write something on my blog or to continue with my DI Hillary Greene books (and I had something to always write). There was no competition really. Hillary Greene always won. Here is the list of books of hers in that series I had completed. Only two of them are left but it is because they aren’t available as an e-book on Amazon’s Kindle yet. I am waiting sincerely for those to get published.
I tried to break the series by picking up a couple of romance books in between but couldn’t be on a break for too long. The allure was too much to ignore.
DI Hillary Greene reminded me of Dr Frost (TV series) in many ways, the dry humour, the intelligence, the no-nonsense approach, issues with relationships, workaholic, placed in a small town (Kidlington in Hillary’s case and Denton in Frost’s case) you name it. It also had characters who stay with her throughout the series and many who come and go for a couple of books. There is a natural progression. It was a delightful read and I would love to see this as a TV series (hopefully well written). It also has a lot of English Slang which taught me a few choice words 😉
