Hello from the book tour whirlwind!
To celebrate the end of the first week of book tour, I treated myself to Karen White’s upcoming The Christmas Spirits on Tradd Street, the latest in her popular Tradd Street series about a realtor who sees dead people. There are very few things that can make a five hour flight seem too short, but a Karen book (and a surprisingly good sandwich from Panera) make for a truly marvelous afternoon. If you haven’t read Karen’s books before, you can go back and start at the first book in the series, The House on Tradd Street, or you can dive right in. I was a little worried, because it had been a while since I’d read the last one, but it wasn’t at all hard to pick back up.
To celebrate the start of week two of book tour, I picked up another book I’ve been hoarding, Jean Kwok’s Searching for Sylvie Lee, an immersive mystery about a golden girl who goes missing and the secrets that begin to unravel as her family searches for her. As well as being an absorbing mystery, it’s a fascinating glimpse into Chinese American and Dutch culture.
