    Reading books by Margaret Thornton who taught in Blackpool, England, my hometown so I’m enjoying the nostalgia n reading books with the plots centred around locations I’m familiar with.

    Sounds nice. My sister introduced me to a female Homicide Lt. Taylor Jackson character based out of Nashville and it is funny to KNOW exactly where they are throughout the book. (J.T. Ellison) I've gone on to read the Medical Examiner series spin off too.
    Good to see you post Mo!

    Linda Coles - Scream Blue Murder. New author to me - good
    Susan Hill - The Benefit of Hindsight. Latest in Simon Serrailler series
    Ann Cleeves - The Long Call. This lady writes the Vera and Shetland series which are also shown on UK TV. This is a new set of characters for her, set in the South West of England. Not as good as the others but may inprove when i get to know the characters better
    Quintin Jardine - The Bad Fire. New one in the Bob Skinner series. This guy can kick the bad guys asses just as well as Reacher does!
    Angela Marsons - Evil Games. I have read a few previously by this author. They are good
    Lee Chils - Blue Moon. See separate topic above

    I hope everyone had a marvellous festive season and an equally exciting New Year's Eve celebration. Quite quiet at our house, just the three of us but pleasantly so.

    I guess at the beginning of a new year, also a new decade, there might be the tendency to feel a bit nostalgic for times gone by. I’m reading a book set in 1940’s Liverpool, England just after WWII and the landlady of a pub near the docks is trying to get the customers to go home as she wants to listen to Valentine Dyall in the BBC program “The Man In Black on the wireless. Gosh, did that ever take me back, Mum and I used to listen to that each week, the program was popular and must have been on the radio for quite a while. Felt a bit of a tug at my heart, a bit of my childhood.

    The actual name of the BBC program was Appointment with Fear and Mum and I got our weekly supply of tingly excitement, sort of a horror type drama. It continued into the 1950's I think and was very popular.

    In the same book there was reference to the program ITMA, It's That Man Again, featuring Tommy Handley. Us Brits were really reliant on the wireless, even me as a youngster was always keeping asking questions about the war but my Uncle George used the scare me as he would in a quiet voice say "Hitler's got a new secret weapon" and, of course, he scared me good. Long time ago!

    Hope as a Canadian I never have to experience the sound of guns or the sound of an air raid siren and I wish the same for each and everybody in the whole world although many people are experiencing bad times of violence now. Wishing everyone a good and peaceful 2020 and I also hope there is some movement on the climate change question.

    Good to hear from you, Mo. Hope things are going OK for you & Dave.

    Although I wasn't born for World War 2, we have been sorting through some old photos today. Some of them are from the 1930's and ones taken during the war years, some of which are of my Dad when he was in the army in India
