Making people laugh is not only difficult to do, but a neat feat in a book. I can remember many times when a bit of humor got me through some real rough situations.

So glad you found David Rosenfelt's delightful series. My husband and I have read them all, along with Rosenfelt's standalones. Happy reading!


Margie, I can't believe it took me so long to discover Rosenfelt's books, but I'm sure glad I did!


I agree, Mike. When life's not going my way, it always helps to find something to laugh about.

Is book New Tricks related to the British TV series of the same name? I love this series. It's about a unit of retired cops who are pressed into service to handle cold calls. The original group was a real collection of characters, including one bi-polar cop who was also a recovering alcoholic. The current crew is still quirky including a geriatric womanizer who thinks he's still a hot number. I watch on PBS, Friday nights.


It doesn't sound like the two are related, Ellen. The book revolves around Andy Carpenter, part-time attorney and part-time dog rescuer. But I'll definitely see if I can catch an episode of the TV series. I love quirky characters!


I read the first one or two in the series, way back when... I recall the quirky characters and the humor. You're right... they were a lot of fun! I'll have to see what else is available to read. Something with grins and chuckles sounds good in the middle of winter. :-)
