Lots of Fun
I was first introduced to Colin Cotterill's Dr. Siri's stories. I whipped through all the books very fast, enjoying the doings of the elderly, but sharp-witted protagonist, Dr. Siri. Cotterill has a sly, sense of humor that does not distract from his mysteries at all.
I bought the audio version of the first Jimm Juree book, "Killed at the Whim of a Hat," and found myself desperately waiting for the second one. The Jimm Juree books are lighter than Dr. Siri, but they are just as rich in detail, and equally clever and amusing. Another bonus of both series is that they are set in Southeast Asia;the author has clearly studied the quirks, habits, and history of the local people. I highly recommend this book, though you should probably start with the first one so you are properly introduced to Jimm Juree's family and her friends.

Very entertaining! (and educational, as well)
While IMHO, the first book of this series "Killed at the Whim of a Hat" is better; this one is action-packed as you learn about the perils of immigrants trying to survive in coastal areas.
