Adult colouring books. I love them. The shelves in the bookshops …

Memories of a TV Detective

Rena George Scotland, TV Detectives 3 Comments

I have wanted to visit this village since it appeared in a scene from Case Histories. Remember that wonderful BBC crime series featuring Kate Atkinson’s Edinburgh detective Jackson Brodie?

In Spain the celebration happens on December 8, where Mother’s Day is a …
