A Study in Scarlet Women by Sherry Thomas is the first in the Lady Sherlock series and I’ve had it on Audible almost since its release. I also preordered the next two and yet they sat. When Because Reading issued a month long challenge to read a series in a month I knew it was time. I am kicking myself quite thoroughly for having waited. Grab a peppermint mocha latte and see why you should begin them now….
A Merciful Silence by Kendra Elliot is the fourth novel in the Mercy Kilpatrick series and the darkest and strongest novel in the series to date. When the bones of a family are discovered after flooding, Mercy is reminded of a similar murder that happened over twenty years ago, but that killer is in jail. Mercy will be tested as loved ones are placed in danger and the body count continues.
I picked up Foundryside after reading a recommendation from Kevin Hearne, and I couldn’t be happier. I listened to the narration performed by Tara Sands. An action-packed, suspenseful tale with an unlikely heroine set in a dystopian world, Bennett captivated and enthralled me from the opening chapter.
The Way of the Flesh is a brilliant, atmospheric, historical, crime fiction novel that had me completely enthralled. The story is rich in the history of medical advancements and butchery performed during this period; particularly those surrounding the development of anaesthesia.
Murder, a stellar narrator, and a girl with two-hearts how could I resist The Impossible Girl by Lydia King? A brilliant tale from start to finish I quickly became caught up in Cora’s tale. Fans of historical fiction, romance, suspense and murder-mysteries will want to grab a copy.
Sadie by Courtney Summers was a hard read, but Summers never fails to impress me. It’s the kind of story that sticks with you. A mystery, an investigation and heart-wrenching discoveries await you dear reader. Set time aside for this as it will keep you reading into the wee hours, sleep be damned.
Please welcome Sophia Rose to the blog today as she shares the historical suspense, Bellewether by Susanna Kearsley. This is an author whose books are in my TBR pile and I am curious to see what she thinks. Grab an iced coffee and enjoy….
