Weekly Reading Round-Up

Happy Friday, all!  And happy last weekend of August.  It’s very hard to believe that next week will be September already….

I started the week with Now You See Them, the fifth book in Elly Griffiths’s Brighton Mysteries, which rather surprised me by jumping ahead to ten years later, to the mid 1960s, where the atmosphere changes considerably from the post-war world of the first few books.  This is a group of people struggling with the next phase in their lives, with what happens once you’re settled and have kids– but aren’t quite where you want to be.  I’m curious to see where the next book goes, since this marked a very distinct shift, both in time period and tone.

From there, it was on to Megan Miranda’s latest, Such a Quiet Place, about what happens when a close-knit– or seemingly close-knit– group of people is unsettled by a tragedy in their midst.  What happens when one of your neighbors might be a cold-blooded murderer?  And, even worse, when it might not be the person you thought it was?

What have you been reading this week?

    Obviously devoured ‘The Mischief of the Mistletoe’ this week, but also read the 6th Enola Holmes, the Enola Holmes short story, and am now onto an ARC of her newest adventure (out next week after not having a new adventure in 10 years!) Once I finish ‘The Black Barouche,’ due to recommendations here I finally got ‘The Lost Village’ by Camilla Sten from the library. SO many weeks on the waiting list for that one!

    I am enjoying the historicals of Laura Frantz this week. So far I have read Tidewater Bride (1634 Jamestown), Mistress of TallAcre, and The Colonel’s Lady set in post revolutionary Virginia and Kentucky respectively. I love reading about early America and enjoy how Laura Frantz wrties.
