  1. Two of these writers are regulars in my library. To date I have read all of Brad Meltzer’s books, and find them educational as well as entertaining. He has a different style of writing that I appreciate.

    Alex Kava is another fine writer. I have read all of her Maggie O’Dell mysteries. One of the things I like the most about her is that she can end a book better than most writers. There’s always something heart warming, funny, or thought provoking at the end. Of course I like the entire book as well.

    • Hi Jerry, Alex Kava is a completely ”new to me author” so thanks for letting us in on her knack for book endings. Not every author can do this well, it’s good to of one who shines in this area.

      Thanks for dropping by…
