Book Review – All Shall Be Well

All Shall Be WellAll Shall Be Well by Deborah Crombie

I read the first in Deborah Crombie’s mystery series in September of last year and enjoyed the introduction to her main characters, Duncan Kincaid and Gemma James. In this second novel, Kincaid’s terminally ill neighbor dies peacefully in her sleep but Kincaid has a suspicious feeling. Ms. Crombie’s stories are written with wit and humor but it’s her characters that will continue bring me back to her series. Her books are less about the mystery, although I will admit to being surprised by the ending, and more about the depth of her characters and the emerging histories behind even secondary characters. After only two books, I’ve grown especially attached to Scotland Yard Superintendent Duncan Kincaid. He has a good mix of intuition and smarts. He is also portrayed as genuine and caring. I don’t know about you, but I will certainly keep reading Deborah Crombie.
