Temperance Brennan Series
If you're a murder mystery junkie like me looking for some quick travel reads, I highly recommend the Temperance Brennan series by forensic anthropologist Kathy Reichs, whose life and novels inspired the TV show Bones. I love a good crime novel starring a strong female character, and these books — 15 so far — fit the bill. This Summer alone I read Deadly Décisions, Fatal Voyage, and Grave Secrets, and I just finished the sixth book, Bare Bones. Trust me: you can't put them down!
