Calling All Dentists (Calling All... Book 2) by Tara Ford
This is the second book in the series and while it doesn't have as many laughs as the first book, it has other qualities.

Diamonds & Dust: A Victorian Murder Mystery by Carol Hedges
5.0 out of 5 stars Wicked and Witty Fun, 20 May 2014
Diamonds and Dust is a must read for anyone who likes mystery with a touch of humour. The narrative was brilliant and fun, with just enough description of Victorian London to make you imagine you were there, but without going on too much. The characters were likeable, at least most of them, such as Josephine King, the young heiress, the shrewd orphan boy, Oi, and former lady of the night, Lilith Marks. I also liked the policemen on the case, and those characters I didnít like got their comeuppance in the end.

I really hope thereís a sequel on its way, if there is Iíll be one of the first to buy it.

Spanning forty years, it tells the story of a group of people who are unknowingly linked to a serial killer in one way or another. As time goes on these people meet up to help catch the murderer, who is as cunning as he is evil.

A tremendous amount of work has gone into this book and it shows. There are a lot of characters in the story, each one different from the next, so the reader does need to concentrate, but it's worth staying with. One of my favourite characters is Kennedy, the DCI, who because of a certain weakness he… Read more
