Huge Fan of Constance Kopp & her sisters in this superb early 20th century mystery!
I love the page-turning mysteries at the heart of this series, but I love the personalities and solid character of Constance Kopp and her sisters even more as they push the traditional female boundaries of early 20th century New York and New Jersey. Based on the real-life Kopp sisters, Author Amy Stewart expertly spins her crime fiction, weaving social issues of that era into the suspense. This second entry is as strong as the first with the bonus of a hint of a developing relationship between Constance and her boss, the fair and supportive Sheriff Heath. Recommend highly!

To binge or not binge-watch — what’s a fan to do when it comes to this first-rate series!
Another superb season of Bosch, with each season better than the last. I continue to love the noir-L.A. world of Harry Bosch and the noir characters who inhabit it. The character of Bosch’s daughter is the exception — she is the burst of sunlight in Harry’s seamy world of crime. The big dilemma for those of us who are fans — to binge watch it all at once or stretch it out one episode a day like a sinful dessert or an excellent glass of wine.

If you’ve been around my blog, my social media, or my physical person for even a short time, you know what a huge mystery/thriller fan I am. One of my go-to favorites are the 21 books (yikes! yes, twenty-one!) in Michael Connelly’s series featuring Harry Bosch.
When Amazon announced it was creating an original series out of the books and the character, I was highly hesitant. Did I want to risk ruining my love for this character by putting it in the hands of TV people? Then I remembered something critical: I used to be one of those TV people! 🙂
So I gave it a try, and I have to admit, the series blew me away. It’s one of my all-time binge watch mainstays, and I’m looking forward to Season 3 when it comes out on April 21st. In case you want to catch up before then, here is the link to the Season 1 pilot.

I know, I know, 2016 is old news. Put the past behind us, and all that. But whenever I put down a book long enough to watch a movie, it had better be good. I’m happy to say my list below all made the cut… I watched a few incredible films this past year!
First, I have to confess something…I’m such a book lover that when I do sit down to watch a movie, it has to be amazing but it doesn’t have to be brand-new. So this list–even though it’s my Best of 2016 list–doesn’t only mean films that came out last year. Instead, it’s films I finally got around to watching! 🙂
HINT: # 1 & 2 on my list are all-around perfect movies, whether it’s script, story, performances, direction, cinematography, music, etc.
My top pick from this list? It’s got to be Hell or High Water. Check it out for yourself…
