  1. Who doesn’t love a ‘who done it’. We have curious minds.

    I found this fascinating. I am developing an interest in Victorian times, and really want to know more about Dickens. I need to read his novels. He is a master of character development.

    • I am fascinated because I started watching the TV miniseries but never finished. Incredible! Dickens didn’t finish the book and I didn’t finish watching the series. That’s too much unfinished business! These mystery books were tantamount to dangling a carrot in front of me. :) Thanks for stopping by and letting me know you were here! :)
