I read historical fiction, mystery, foodie memoir, and well-crafted YA (sometimes other genres).

Skinner's Festival

Skinner's Festival - Quintin Jardine Fun to read a mystery about the Edinburgh Festival while at the festival. Definite junk food mystery, lots of action, and the attempts to humanize the protagonist felt particularly flat... just get on with the terrorist plotting and festival scenery, I don't need to know about Skinner's home life, or inner emotional realities. Not the least of which is because those came over as a cliche.
