The Lure of Mysteries

The Lure of Mysteries When do you feel most inspired to read a good mystery?  I love it when I see a Summer storm rolling in from the distance and can see the lightning  and hear the thunder getting closer.  For some reason, that really puts me in the mood for a good thriller.  My favorite kind of mysteries take place in small English villages where nobody suspects the culprit.  Reading descriptions of daily village life is just as fun for me as trying to solve the crime from a…
