I think last week was quite productive, with some problems solved. It was also a good week for book mail, after several parcels have been lost:
Tiny Uncertain Miracles by Michelle Johnston arrived with thanks to Harper Collins. It’s set in a big, public hospital (that may or may not be familiar to me) as Christmas approached. Marick is a newcomer as the hospital chaplain and while he questions his faith, he discovers scientist Hugo is a forgotten lab. Hugo has discovered bacteria that seem to be producing gold. Could it be a miracle? It’s certainly needed as Marick is hassled about KPIs, has constant nightmares and the hospital shop no longer sells chocolate (I really, really hope this is untrue).
Retribution by Sarah Barrie (released 30th November, thank you to Harlequin) finds Lexie working with the police despite her issues with authority. She’s using her hacking skills out of hours to track a crime family as her colleague investigates a building site death. But could all these be linked – with Lexi holding the key?
Blonde by Joyce Carol Oates is a big book (738 pages). It’s a fictionalised account of the life of Marilyn Monroe, and now a movie on Netflix.
