Happy Tuesday! I’m linking up with That Artsy Reader Girl for Top Ten Tuesday & the topic this week is: “Character Traits I Love.”

  1. Common Sense – I don’t want my amateur detectives to head off into the dark woods without flashlights in high heels without telling anyone where they’re going.
  2. Witty – Someone who’s clever and funny and has good timing with their comments
  3. Intelligent – I read a lot of mysteries. The detective, amateur or professional, needs to be smart enough to see the connections and learn from their mistakes.
  4. Quirky – Has that peculiar trait or traits that makes them stand out
  5. Self Control – Knows they can punch your lights out but doesn’t have to. Or doesn’t sleep with the married man.
  6. Resourceful – Gets things done even if there are difficulties in the way
  7. Furry – I tend to like the pets in cozy mysteries, but I’d rather they not talk.
  8. Romantic – The people who wear rose-colored glasses, who thinks every young couple should fall in love, and takes long walks in the rain
  9. Integrity – Honest, has high moral principles
  10. Ruthless – Okay, this one is probably more for the villain or a side character, but there’s something to be said for someone who has a goal and will do whatever they can to accomplish it.
