Here are some of my favorite mysteries set in foreign countries. If you like mysteries, try these, and as a bonus, you'll learn a little something about people in another culture. All are the first book of a series, except for the Double Comfort Safari Club.
This biography was suggested by one of my patrons so I decided to read it. Being a dog lover I was interested in how Abigail Thomas chose to adopt dogs and live with them after her husband had a serious head injury. She tells us how her life changed after that point and how she learned to adapt. It is a very moving story showing how when her life partner could no longer function as usual, she had to change her life and learn to enjoy that different kind of life. It also showed how severe brain injuries can change how an individual will be able to function from then on, but how Abigail and her husband still managed to develop a new life together.
