Today I’m the guest at the very popular mystery blog, Jungle Red Writers. I’m honored to be among such fabulous writers, and such gracious women. Stop by for a visit and read about another writer (not Dickens) who deeply inspires the world of Dickens Junction–the late, great Charlotte MacLeod.
If Frank Hardy had come out, opened a bookstore, and moved to a Dickens-obsessed Oregon small town, he might have grown up to be something like Simon, the protagonist of Christopher Lord’s charming new mystery, The Christmas Carol Murders. Full of homespun characters and curious goings-on, Lord’s mystery is a love letter to both Dickens and to the small town amateur detectives who’ve kept the peace in hamlets from River Heights to Cabot Cove.
