The New York Public Library, a book theft and the 1900s, how could I resist, The Lions of Fifth Avenue by Fiona Davis. Dual time-lines, mystery and secrets combined for a brilliant tale.
Atmospheric and chilling Silvia Moreno-Garcia’s Mexican Gothic narrated by Frankie Corzo drew me in and held me captive. Fans of gothic horror will be drawn to this tale with its creepy mansion setting.
I enjoy historical fiction involving World War II, and The Book of Lost Names by Kristin Harmel drew me in by its title. The tale Harmel treats us to was unputdownable. We learn the tale of a young-woman who helped hundreds flee the Nazis.
Chanel Cleeton has become one of those authors whose books I will buy without reading the synopsis. If you are looking for a superb historical fiction with romantic threads, look no further than The Last Train to Key West.
The Business of Blood by Kerrigan Byrne takes us to 1890, London, where the business of murder is booming. Grab a cuppa and meet feisty, determined Fiona Mahoney but prepare for trouble….
I am often drawn to fictional books that take place during WWII. I love the weaving of history and the human side of the stories. In The Prisoner’s Wife by Maggie Brookes, a Czech farm girl and a British soldier face incredible odds in the name of love.
After reading Genevieve Graham’s The Forgotten Home Child, I was on the lookout for more stories about orphans when I stumbled upon The Lost Orphan by Stacey Halls. Twists and a memorable story await you in 1754, London.
