Jme I don't like the Women's Mystery Club series. They strike. me as a group of gals deciding to "play sleuth," and I can't really take them seriously.

This week, while sick and out on snow days, I have been listening to Grace Livingston Hill books on librivox.org. They are simple books, and overly wholesome, but the heroines, while...See More
