Reading our group discussion selection, "The Lake of Dead Languages" by Carol Goodman. She is definitely one of my go-to authors. Others are Anne Tyler and Stewart O'Nan. I also like Tawni O'Dell because her books are about my native western Pa., but her books are a bit on the formulaic side.

Ellen,

What I like about Tanya Huff's books is that they are so different from each other.

I think people know her Blood books best. (Lifetime network did a poor job of adapting these into a short-lived tv show.) They take place in Toronto and are about a woman ex-cop whose going blind working as a PI. She gets help from a Henry Fitz Roy who is a neighbor, romance novelist and vampire. The Smoke series follows the Blood series and is set in Vancouver.

She's got the Summoning books and The Enchantment Emporium which is about an extended
