Happy 4th, all!
On my wonderful trip to Houston this week, I finally got to finish the second of Martin Walker’s Bruno mysteries, The Dark Vineyard. Think French Longmire, in which the local chief of police must investigate a series of crimes linked to the local wine industry.
Then I broke my very sensible “don’t read Jenny Colgan books on airplanes” rule and alarmed my seatmate by sniffling over The Bookshop on the Shore all the way home from Houston. But, really, can you read a Jenny Colgan book without tearing up? I’m not sure it can be done. This one is set at a remote Scottish manor house, where a down on her luck single mother takes a job as au pair to three troubled children. Think Sound of Music with Scotland.
After that, I really don’t know what to read next! Do you have any suggestions?
Meanwhile, if you’re looking for some weekend reading, guess what? The Summer Country is currently half-off at both Barnes & Noble (in-store and online) and Amazon! The sale ends Monday, so get ’em while they’re cheap!
What have you been reading this week?
