Mark Clay Grove about this book: Some Kind of Good is the first sequel in the popular, Madison Picker series, which is about the day-to-day experiences of eccentric antiques dealers. It is a new genre known as "occupational fiction." PBS's Doc Martin series and the All Creatures Great and Small series would be other examples of this genre. In the Picker Series, Charles and Emma are antiques dealers who venture from Barboursville, Virginia in pursuit of design merit and profit. This time they go abroad to London and Paris as tour leaders who teach the novices in the group a thing or two about collectibles. Along the way they sample the culinary delights and historical noir of the two great cities. Their day-to-day surprises in the business replaces the typical plot peak in other genres. Every discovery they make is a climax, and there are many. If you like to watch public television's Antiques Roadshow, you'll probably find the Picker series, Some Kind of Good. (346 pages)
