I try not to pay too much attention to my reviews, good or bad, but this time, I’m making an exception. Evil Turns, the latest Madeline Maclin Mystery, will be published this May, but already has a good review from Kirkus. Kirkus is a book review magazine that’s been around since the 1930s, and it’s not always easy to get a review, especially a favorable one. As a former librarian, I often used Kirkus to determine if a book was suitable for my library, so when I received word about the review, I had a little Twilight Zone moment. And I have to admit with another Madeline book and several more Grace Street mysteries in the works, it’s nice to have validation.
