Hi Elizabeth,I haven't read any Laura Lippman, although I am constantly seeing her name mentioned on blogs, so she must be fairly popular, I shall look forward to your review.I am almost done with my last book started in 2013, 'Blood Money' by Doug Richardson.http://www.fiction-books.biz/new-titles/blood-money-by-doug-richardson/I just didn't quite get the time I needed to finish it today, as we have had relatives come to visit.Enjoy the rest of your week and have a good start to the New Year.Yvonne
