I was drawn to The Witch of Willow Hall by Hester Fox with its mention of Salem Witches and atmospheric tale. There are strange happens within Willow Hall and methinks magic is afoot.
The Impossible Girl by Lydia Kang
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.
Scandal Above Stairs by Jennifer Ashley
Scandal Above Stairs by Jennifer Ashley is the second novel in the Kat Holloway Mysteries and offered another suspenseful mystery, with wonderful banter as we deal with life above and below in 1880 London.
The Other Lady Vanishes by Amanda Quick
There is nothing like curling up with a good book. Regardless of what name she pens them under, Jayne Anne Krentz always satisfies this reader. The Other Lady Vanishes by Amanda Quick is the second novel in the Burning Cove series. Suspense, Hollywood glamour, murder, and an unexpected romance delivered the perfect Saturday afternoon read.
Next Year in Havana by Chanel Cleeton
Next Year in Havana by Chanel Cleeton is quite the departure from Cleeton’s contemporary romance series, but she delivered a rich, detailed historical fiction with an air of mystery and a look into Cuba’s history, culture, and people.
Watchmaker’s Heart by Juli D. Revezzo
The Watchmaker’s Heart by Juli D. Revezzo delivered a historical romance with steampunk elements and a nice bit of suspenseful mystery. Penelope “Phoebe” Lockswell is a bit of a tinkerer and has created a somewhat scandalous diffuser. I enjoyed this feisty heroine, and Revezzo quickly pulled me into this tale.
