Nicole Griffith’s Aud Torvingen series

I read these two novels (The Blue Place and Stay) in January after having them recommended by a friend. Aud Torvingen is an heiress and former cop who gets sucked into some bizarre and tragic circumstances. The novels were well written, with a wealth of descriptive detail, but I didn’t really identify with Aud as strongly as my friend obviously did. Interesting and worth reading, but not books that I’ll be taking off my shelf to read over and over again.
