Today let's talk about books that have series. I want to see some of my favorite mystery series on the big screen or on television. First and foremost I want would love to see Carolyn Hart's Max & Annie bookstore mysteries made into a series of movies. I don't think we have enough bookstore mysteries and these would make an endearing addition. Speaking of bookstores and movies what about the bookstore mysteries that have a ghost in them? Wouldn't that be great fun to watch?
I'm not done with my Hollywood and television wishlist of movies and series shows. I want to see Monica Ferris's stitch shop mysteries. I have to see Goddy in a series an Betsy. This would also probably recruit more readers and stitchers by way of plots and characters. Of course I can't leave out Lorraine Barrett's and Lorraine Bartlett's Series. The booktown series just makes want to grab a snack and start watching. Then the Victoria Square Series has my heart and what a great premise for Hollywood.
Now while I am dreaming I am dreaming of EJ Copperman's ghost series. I actually think this would make a great family movie/s series. They could come out once a year. You couldn't ask for a nicer author except maybe Jeff Cohen shusssh don't tell EJ I said that.
BTW backing up for a minute. It's Carolyn Hart's series that gave me the writing inspiration. When the late Monette Cummings gave me my first Carolyn Hart Mystery I wanted to write like her when I grew up. BUT when I grew up I found Lorraine's booktown series and I literally sat down and cried because I KNEW she had my gratitude for writing this series. (It came at a very bad time in my life) and I will forever be grateful she penned this series.)
Historical fiction/mysteries have come a long ways. I love love love Carola Dunn's Series. I also can't brag enough about Emily Brightwell's Series. Mrs. Jefferies makes me want to time travel back be a part of that household. Of course I can't leave out Kerry Greenwood because her series actually is a tv series. At least by way of Netflix and I have devoured them.
I would love to add to my wishlist the Joanne Fluke Mysteries but I don't think they would sit well time after time with viewers because of the love triangle. It does get on everyone's nerves and all of the books later I don't rush to buy the next one anymore. This is my blog for today. What does and doesn't work for me.
