Another busy one this week! I seem to have been dashing about everywhere, but getting some reading done in between times. Thank goodness for our lovely Parcel Post man, he always drops in at the right time!
The first book I received was from The Reading Room and Simon & Schuster. Jane Thynne’s The Winter Garden. This is the second book in the Berlin series (the first being Black Roses) and once again stars Clara Vine, actress and intelligence agent in pre-World War II Germany. This time Clara is investigating a murder and the ramifications could be sinister… I love the cover, as the model looks perfect for the time period.
The second book was once again from The Reading Room and Simon & Schuster. (You were both so kind to me this week!) Eugenia by Mark Tedeschi (QC) is an Australian true crime story of a woman who pretended to be a man and was charged with murdering her wife. In 1920. Eugenia Falleni was married twice before she was caught after a long police investigation and a three year disappearance. This story looks fascinating and an interesting insight into life, media and police during the 1920s.
Last but not least, the new Fiona McCallum book, Time Will Tell arrived from Harlequin Australia! Due for release in April 2014, this is the second book of the Button Jar series (the third book is released in Summer 2014). I really enjoyed Saving Grace, as it was reflective of real life (not everything was tied up). I’m looking forward to catching up with Emily, her gorgeous house and growing business while hoping she goes into her granny’s button jar for a surprise…thank you!
