Peter James springs to mind, with his Roy Grace crime series based in Brighton.
Another favourite is Elly Griffiths with her lead character, forensic archaeologist Ruth Galloway always with an interesting challenge placed in front of her. I'm eagerly waiting her newest book, which is on my library reservation list. However, as per my resolutions of sorts post at the end of January, I am trying to read different styles of books. So I have stepped out of my comfort zone a little and have read a few different genres to date.
However, I have a major confession to make regarding the books I read! I
I'm not a particularly fast reader, and some take longer to complete than others. The Luminaries would be one case in mention - what a doorstopper of a book!

Through the Cracks - Honey Brown
The Disappeared - Kristina Ohlsson
The One Plus One - Jojo Moyes

I realise this is probably another major swerve from decluttering! However, I've wanted to get a few things sorted on the blog for a little while, and this was one of the changes.
Thanks for the comments regarding my indecision on the blog name in my last post. I've realised that I'm quite happy where it sits, and hopefully fellow declutterers can find some hope/inspiration/kindred spirits here!
cheers for now
