Are You Tenacious and Self-Reliant?

If you are tenacious and self-reliant then there is a possiblity you can be a female sleuth!

The Madison Public Library in Wisconsin stated the past few years have shown an increase in the number of mysteries featuring a woman sleuth.(As we all know a sleuth is a person who investigates crimes.) This may be a police officer and or a private detective; however, books and movies and series have been coming out for years showing a woman sleuth as a professor, attorney, nun, librarian, doctor, and even an office worker. We have hair salon owners, tea shop owners, a woman who knits and a housewife. You name it and odds are someone has written a book about that profession.

The one thing all have in common is they are tenacious, self-reliant and I believe nosy. Regardless of who tries to prevent them from sleuthing they will not be stopped until they find out "who done-it".

Here are some of the new releases with "Female Sleuths":
