I know there are lots of responses to this questions based on the mysteries read, detectives, and, of course, readers. I love Larrissa Reinhart’s Cherry Tucker because she’s hilarious and can’t keep her nose out of someone’s business if she suspects something wrong is going on. She has an amazing heart and a stubborn streak which are traits we share. One of her opposites would be Barbara Cleverly’s Joe Sandilands. A war hero and now an Assistant Commissioner, Joe Sandilands is serious; however, he isn’t above pushing his limits to solve a crime. He’s incredibly smart and recognizes the importance of women in the police force which was certainly not popular in London in 1933. He’s a man of honor and is particularly passionate when children or women are in danger.
