I stayed up last night to finish, "Let Loose the Dogs," by Maureen Jennings. This is a book I've had for a couple of years, found in the discount bin at Chapters shortly after my friend Christine told me about her friend (the author) and another book she wrote called, "The Map of the Mind" which was all about creativity. Lately I have been trying to read up the pile of books I was given or I had bought because I thought it was a good idea at the time, most of them dating back a few years. This is a historical murder mystery with Jennings popular detective character, William Murdoch. It was a fun book, an easy read, with most of the story taking place in the late 1800's Toronto. There is not much more to say about it but it was complete, didn't disappoint or leaving me wondering why or how. The language was in keeping with the time period it was written about and if you like historical murder mysteries then I would recommend it. Now, after catching up with my own rather historical pile, I'm free to move on to those wonderful library books I picked up this week.

I love a good murder/mystery. This is set in Toronto? In the late 1800s? I'm even more keen..keener...neener keener...(my brain is rain soggy!!)....I'm adding it to my list (I have 4 piles of books on the go...seems we share this trait!!).
