#85 Ngaio Marsch: Color Scheme
Another one of Alleyn mysteries. I found this one really hard to get into. It took forever for the crime to actually happen, and Inspector Alleyn appeared to not be himself in very many ways.

#86 Kerry Greenwood: Away with the Fairies
I really enjoyed this Miss Fisher mystery not only because of the usual well done story, but also because it provided a very interesting perspective on women's lives and everyday problems in those times.

#87 Susan Kay: Legacy
A historical romance about Queen Elizabeth I. After so many books on the subject, there appears to be nothing new, but one must of course take into consideration, that this book is from 1985 and so is probably one of the first ones to tread the now worn path. It is very beautifully written and quite romantic, but at times there is too much mysticism for my taste.

#88 Lee Child: Peruader
Another Jack Reacher novel. I can't say I am becoming addicted, but those are definitely great at whiling away an hour or two in the airport.
