Historical mystery sites, part 2

Historical fiction at the WRL.  As part of their reader’s advisory service, the staff at the Williamsburg Regional Library in Virginia have started “Blogging for a good book,” giving short book reviews five days a week.  The selection of titles tagged as “historical fiction” (eighteen as of this writing) include several that would not meet the narrower criteria of historical mysteries, but the ones that do are all top notch.  I especially like Barry’s Picks, which include authors Michael Pearce, Lindsey Davis, and Bruce Alexander (all of whom are favorites of mine).  I’ve linked directly to the historical fiction section of this blog, but there are at least a couple additional historical titles in the “mysteries” section that haven’t been tagged as such.  This isn’t a blog to which I subscribe, but instead I stop by once in a while to see what’s been added.  I’m sure many other public libraries have similar services and if you have one you’d like to recommend, please let me know.

    Thanks for the mention of the WRL blog, and for the comments about our historical mystery posts. I think that the next week I take will be devoted to historical mysteries. This week it’s books on music, fiction and nonfiction.
