I am working my way through the Ruth Galloway series by Elly Griffiths. This is a well written mystery series, I would say that it falls into the “soft-boiled” category. What makes this series stand out from many others, is that the writer is very skilled in writing setting and evoking mood. A sense of isolation and loneliness seeps from the pages. Makes me want to draw the curtains, put the kettle on and snuggle under my quilt to finish it.
