What Excites You in Mysteries?
by June Shaw
Do you get excited when you read a certain line in a mystery? It might be a line or a line that you determine will be quotes for a long time? (Shaken not stirred)
I've found many lines in Janet Evanovitch books, especially her early ones, that made me laugh out loud and then read to my partner. (We all recall where Stephanie Plum lost her virginity.)
I get excited by haunting scenes, scenes that will stay with me for a long time (And Then There Were None.)
Unique characters who I care about remain with me and make me want to return to them again in other books. I also love being pulled into a setting that comes alive.
What excites you in a mystery!
