morning, Beth. Barclay looks like an interesting author. I just put Irish Country Christmas on my Amazon wishlist. You always have the most interesting finds.

Ruth Rendell is quite good. I haven't read that many of her books though, but liked the ones I read. She has written a very good one called Anna's Book under her pen name Barbara Vine, which I really liked. It is 20 years old but I think it is still a great mystery.

Veens and Robin: I spend time scouring reviews from a bunch of places: blogs, newspapers, library, and magazines/journals.

Louise/Bogsider: Wasn't aware the Barbara Vine and Rendell were the same person. Thanks for the suggestion.
