Winner of my second Police Procedural series poll

I found that polling you guys for my next police procedural read was a huge success the first time. I read the first poll winner “For Reasons Unknown” by Michael Wood and loved it.

SO… I decided to do it again.  Twenty-nine people voted this time.

Here is the result of my second poll:

The front-runner of the poll this time was “Perfect Remains” by Helen Fields.  This is an author I’ve not read before and I’m really looking forward to enjoying this novel.
I’ll be reading “Perfect Remains” in March.

As you can see by the Goodreads statistics, it has been enjoyed by many.

Have YOU already read this book? Or, do you plan to?

On another matter…. I just found out that a second blogger has BLOCKED ME on Twitter. Be honest with me guys… WHY is this happening? I try to share your posts. What have I done?


Sincerely, hurt and perplexed, Lynne.

  1. Perfect Remains is on sale on Amazon (US) for $2.99 so I’ve just gone and bought it and added it to my recommended shelf on GR. Perhaps I’ll try and squeeze it in in March as well. 🙂

    As for the Twitter issue, ugh. I don’t know that I would have reacted any differently than you, Lynne. It would seriously hurt my feelings to be blocked by someone I felt I had a virtual relationship with, without being given any reason as to why. Though I don’t really “know” you, you strike me as being a very reasonable and well-intentioned person. I find it difficult to believe that you would have disregarded someone’s respectful request to cease doing something. Clearly there was a break down in communication somewhere along the line. I’m sorry that the OP felt it necessary to “go nuclear” on you. Though it’s hurtful, it truly says more about their character than yours.

  2. Perfect Remains is what I voted for as I have a copy – in fact I just slotted it into my planned reading for this month… sorry to hear you’ve had more twitter issues 😦

    You continually post your links to my blog and get uppity when I do not allow them.
    You’ve done it multiple times. I grew sick of the behavior and blocked you.

    Now apparently, I’m not even allowed to do that?
    Your moral superiority knows, no bounds.

    I added this here A) because you asked and B) so you’d FINALLY leave me alone and stop attempting to publicly shame me.
    I do not wish to shame you, remove my name and Twitter handle from your website!


    • Okay…. why not LET ME KNOW that you didn’t like links in my comments? (they were probably only links to my review of a book we both enjoyed?) A quick word would have eliminated this issue altogether. When was I ever ‘uppity’? Sorry if I was, but I remember no such time. For the sake of transparency what did I say? and When?
      I will remove your Twitter ‘handle’ from my post. However, doing so seems to have worked as you FINALLY responded to me. Thanks for that.

        Please just leave me alone and do not online harass me to get my attention.
        Surely, you’re better than that?


        • Communication is so important. Why couldn’t you have just answered me the first time I asked? I feel in no way morally superior as you suggested. I thought I was just being a supportive book blogger. I do NOT harass people. I sent a message to you weeks ago, but you didn’t reply. I had no way of knowing that you objected to the links in my comments if you didn’t tell me. How was I supposed to know?

    • In order for me to get ‘uppity’ as you say, wouldn’t I have known your objections? Today is the first I’ve heard of this. Perhaps you are confusing me with someone else?

  6. Lynne I’m going to stick my neck out here and please do not take this personally but I don’t think it’s very fair to name the two bloggers you have an issue with in such a public fashion. This is between you & them. I follow the three of you and I just don’t like naming on any blog. I hope you can understand where I’m coming from.

    I read Perfect Remains a while ago, although I don’t read much crime fiction, this one is good. I chose it after I saw an article in my local newspaper about the author. I wanted to support a local author and was pleased that I took the chance.
