I was born in Barcelona and have lived in the UK for many years now. I'm a writer, translator (English-Spanish and vice-versa) and I'm a medical doctor and worked in Forensic Psychiatry many years. I also have a BA and a PhD in American Literature and Film, and a Masters in Criminology. I've always loved books and apart from writing them I review them often. I write a bit of everything, check my books for more information and my about page for links. My blog is bilingual, English and Spanish.

  1. Vintage cozy infused with police procedure and British humor . . . sounds truly FUN!

      Oh, it is! As somebody else said, think Agatha Christie meet Monty Python. Or, better still, a stocky Basil Fawlty with bowler hat and you get Dover! Have a great week, Priscilla!

  2. I’ve never heard of Joyce Porter but from your review her Dover books sound fabulous and fun.

      You and me both, Mary! It seems she was popular at the time but forgotten later. I’ve read great reviews of vintage mysteries and I thought I’d give this one a try and it is well worth it. Have a great week, Mary and many thanks.

  3. I just don’t do Cosy books, but I like the sound of Dover so much, this is going on my wish-list. Thanks, Olga.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks, Pete. I know what you mean, and I’m in two minds about them. If the mystery is solid, I don’t mind cozy books, especially if I like the characters, but when the mystery is not well constructed, I find them quite annoying. This is not cozy in that sense, and I think you’ll appreciate the lingo and probably spot a lot of the references as well. Have a great week!

  4. This really does sound unusual, Olga, and I love British humour.

    1. Thanks, Robbie. I think you’d enjoy it, both the mystery and the atmosphere. Have a great week!
