  • I’m still a fan of Mary Stewart’s 1950s–70s romantic thrillers. The Informationist by Taylor Stevens is a brilliant thriller with a unique woman protagonist. I also like the forensic focused romantic thrillers written by Laura Griffin. My favorite mysteries are by Louise Penny, Margaret Maron, Ellis Peters, Elizabeth Peters, and Dana Stabenow.
