Digging out from the book pile, I finally read Susanna Kearsley’s Bellewether, which goes back and forth between a historic house on Long Island in the present day and the same house during the French and Indian Wars. It reminded me a great deal of her The Shadowy Horses (anyone else a Shadowy Horses fan out there?), with a museum curator and a ghost very invested in making sure she find out the truth of the past, except in this case it was American and 18th century instead of Roman legions in Scotland.
And now…. Do you ever have the problem of having such a pile of books you want to read that you just don’t know where to begin? On my stack right now, I have Theodora Goss’s The Strange Case of the Alchemist’s Daughter (paranormal historical), Camille Di Maio’s The Beautiful Strangers (historical), Wendy Walker’s Emma in the Night (psychological thriller), Lea Geller’s Trophy Life (contemporary satire), Caroline Kepnes’s You (psychological thriller)– and that’s just the top of the pile.
So, of course, I’m re-reading Daniel O’Malley’s Stiletto, the second in his Rook Files series, while trying to figure out what to read next.
