41) Bonfire Night by Deanna Raybourn; finished 11/23/14; Novella, not up to par with the other Lady Julia mysteries, very disappointing as it is supposedly the last of the Lady Julia series.

44) Death Comes to Pemberley by P.D. James; abandoned 12/7/14; Abandoning this book which is what I felt like doing after reading the awful synopsis of Pride and Prejudice that starts the book. It should be titled Death Comes to Jane Austen's Characters!

45) The Hermit of Eyton Forest by Ellis Peters; finished 12/14/15; Now that's how to write a murder mystery! What a wonderful experience to read another of Ellis Peter's Brother Cadfael mysteries after ditching the awful Death Comes to Pemberley!

47) A Rare Benedictine by Ellis Peters; finished 12/20/14; 3 short stories with Brother Cadfael including one before he becomes a monk. They were OK, but I prefer the full length mysteries.
