I've been working my way through her books and really enjoy them.  They aren't your murder and mayhem type: very quiet really.  But they go more into people and motives and interaction : I find myself with some of her books still thinking about them several days on.  I like the traditional British background as well.

Haven't read them but they sound like the type of mysteries I do like with the character development; descriptions of locale and customs, etc.! Thanks for that info Vandana.

I had honestly never heard of her, but will do some research and give her a try. I like British books and books with strong characters so they sound perfect! I don't mind a little murder and mayhem now and again, but it's not a requirement. LOL

I read the Patrick Grant series years ago and really enjoyed them. I read a few of her non-series ones, also, but it's been a long time.

I've never read the Patrick Grant series, but have read several of the stand alones over a period of years - Crime in Question, Dangerous to Know and a couple others. Like Ellie, it's been quite a while, and I don't really have a reason that I didn't seek out more. 

* Timely reminder - I saw one at the FOL this a.m., so I'll be reading one of hers again soon. :-)
