Friday Recommends #3

Friday again, and it's time for my choice of book for Friday recommends...

This is an exciting book blog hop that book bloggers can take part in once a week to share with their followers, the books that they most recommend reading!

The rules for Friday Recommends are:

Follow Pen to Paper as host of the meme.
Pick a book that you've read, and have enjoyed enough to recommend to other readers. It can be a book you've read recently, or a book you read years ago - it's up to you - but make sure you tell us why you love the book (like a mini review). You make the post as long or as short as you like.
Visit the other blogs and enjoy!

My choice this week is :

A Room Full of Bones (Ruth Galloway 4)


Elly Griffiths

A Room Full of Bones by Elly Griffiths

Quercus Publishing Plc (5 Jan 2012) 

In A Room Full of Bones we return to the salt-mashes of Norfolk, to a world where the bones of the ancients threaten the peace and tranquillity of the museum in which they are housed. When archaeologist Ruth Galloway arrives at the museum for the official opening of an old wooden coffin, she is totally unprepared to find the museum curator lying dead on the floor next to the coffin. What then follows is the story of how a deadly curse, attached to the ancient bones, threatens the peaceful existence of all who come into contact with the museum.

As with Elly Griffith's previous novels, A Room Full of Bones is beautifully written, with characters who are as familiar as old friends. The continuing story of Ruth and DCI Harry Nelson is one that will run and run, and yet the return of old favourites like Cathbad and Max, reiterates the clever continuity of this talented story teller, as she continues to take us on a fascinating journey.

If you haven't read any of this wonderful series then please start with The Crossing Places, and follow the story from the beginning, you won't be disappointed.  Elly Griffiths is a talented story teller, and I await the publication of her books with eager anticipation.

Happy Reading
