Sometimes I like a little light mystery in my reading line up and the Maggie Hope mystery series is one I turn to for a reliably good read. Set during World War II Maggie is a part-American 20 something living in London when she gets drawn into the war effort. The series takes readers on adventures with Maggie and her friends. The adventures are mixed with just the right amount of historical detail to make it interesting and if you have questions about the historical accuracy the author provides a Historical Notes section.
Time for a little historical fiction. Fiona Davis uses New York City landmarks as the center piece of her novels. The landmark is mixed with a recent mystery to add a twist to the novels. In The Address the historic apartment building the Dakota is the center piece.
