I remember reading a few of Janet Dawson’s Jeri Howard books back in the 1990s, when they first came out, and I have vague memories of liking them, although I don’t remember a lot of details. Still, that was enough for me to notice an omnibus of the first five titles when it popped up in my reading recommendations at Kindle US. And, the omnibus is free at Kindle US and UK right now (April 16, 2021).
Looking at eReaderIQ, it looks as if it goes free every few months, but never for very long, so grab it now if you want it. It has the first five titles in the series, so if you read the first one and like it, you’re in luck – you have four more! There’s also a second omnibus of later titles, and it goes free every now and then too, although not as often. Keep an eye out here, and I’ll post it when I see it.
The Jeri Howard Anthology: Books 1-5, contains: Kindred Crimes, Till the Old Men Die, Take a Number, Don’t Turn Your Back on the Ocean, and Nobody’s Child (apa The Missing Child)
