blurb2Karen of Euro Crime kindly arranged for Aly Monroe’s latest book in her Peter Cotton series, Black Bear, to be sent to me by the publishers41RI5AleUqL._AA160_ John Murray.

    I wanted to read the book in this series prior to this one after reading about it here. It won an award, I think. Do you think someone can read that book without having read the prior books in the series? I have so much to read that I want to sample a good book without committing to the series, which I’ll never get to read.

      Kathy yes I think you could read the award winner Icelight without reading the earlier books, although I enjoyed number two Washington Shadow a lot. I always like books set in places I have lived or visited and Icelight is set in London and Croydon. Black Bear is set in New York and Rhode Island.

    One of the things I like about global reading is learning about new locations. I have been to New York and Rhode Island, al those don’t seem as intriguing as the prior books. So, I’ll put Icelight on my TBR list and will read about the series overall.
