I thing spring could be finally here, if my nose is any judge. So, so sneezy! Plus, I’m sitting here in short sleeves!
Unfortunately no shopping for me last week due to prior engagements, so the book mail was extra special:
Dead in the Water by Tania Chandler was a prize from Scribe Publications and Goodreads. It’s an Aussie thriller set in the Victorian countryside. Brigitte thought that leaving the city was meant to make life happier, but when her ex-boyfriend comes to down, so does murder. Suddenly any chance of peace is shattered for her family…
The Cloud Leopard’s Daughter by Deborah Challinor was a surprise from Harper Collins. This book features Kitty, Amber and other characters from the Smuggler’s Wife series (which shamefully I haven’t read, even though I like Deborah Challinor’s books). The girls go to New Zealand after a message for help from their friend Wong Fu. He needs them to retrieve his daughter, who has been forcibly taken to China. But it’s not going to be easy, given that the girls are stuck in the middle of a game of greed, lust and opium.

What I Read Last Week:
What I’m Reading at the Moment:
Dead in the Water looks very tempting. Enjoy your books, and thanks for sharing.
We Were on a Break looks so fun! Dead in the Water caught my eye also. I’m sneezing here too even though it’s Autumn- glad Spring is headed your way! Have a good week!
The Cloud Leopard’s Daughter caught my eye because it is set in China and I haven’t read too many books in this setting. It’s great that you got it as a surprise in your mailbox!
I have a Deborah Challinor series sitting waiting to be read that I bought awhile back, I must get into them.
Oh spring….I have to admit I did a bit of a double-take there, I’m so used to reading fall-themed posts, the mention of spring made my head spin! 😉
It’s great to see another Deborah Challinor release, I have enjoyed her books. The Tania Chandler book looks good. I read her first novel, Please Don’t Leave Me Here.
It’s nice that spring is finally here. I agree my nose is paying for it, my hayfever was terrible yesterday.
Have a great week and enjoy your books, happy reading!
