- Chasing Lady Midnight (A Mystery With Superheroes)
on Dec. 08, 2013
C.L. Ragsdale writes with some of the best wit I've ever read. "Chasing Lady Midnight" is a combination of Janet Evanavich (Stephanie Plum) and Helen Fielding (Briget Jones Diary). A totally unique humorous cozy not only with a happy ending but a nice seguay to the next novel in the series. Well done, Ragsdale!
