Great list & I'm loving how you didn't shy away from the classics. Just FYI, you misspelled Austen towards the top. I think you will love the Stephanie Plum series. I'm glad you included One for the Money. You are going to love Washington Square. Tell me what you think of the 13th Tale. It was SOO strange! And, if you haven't read The Historian, put that under the catch your eye ones. I wish I had the time to do such a list. I'm impressed!!
