    I don’t think I can pick just one. At the moment I’m really enjoying Linda Castillo’s series where Kate Burkholder is the chief of police in Painters Mill, where a big part of the community is Amish, as was Kate as a child. I’m on the fourth book now and looking forward to the next.

  61. Pamela

    I agree with those who have said that it is not possible to identify just one book as being the ‘best’ book one has read. And how does one define ‘best’ anyway? Are you intending folks to nominate just a work of fiction (prose) or are you going to include anthologies of, say, poetry, short stories, etc. etc. etc.? At the moment I am plugging some gaps in my classic reading and am enjoying Evelyn Waugh’s ‘A Handful of Dust’.

    I go through more books than some people have hot dinners, but my favourite so far is ‘Intensity’ by Dean Koontz. Every time I read it I am right there, hiding with Chyna Sheperd, while the psycho who has killed her best friend family brings back all the evil memories of the childhood she had buried. She hitches a lift unbeknownst on the madmans camper-van and the story from there, as the title suggests, just intensifies to fever pitch! Its awesome. x

  73. Karen B

    Probably too many to mention but one of my first favourite reads was the Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie
