Some new books have come in over the past couple of weeks but I’ve been busy trying to keep my studio tables free for bookbinding projects that I think I put some of the new books away without even doing a proper post on them. Here are the ones I was just about to move to the side (you can ignore the papers & beads around):
Killer’s Island by Anna Jansson is part of the Stockholm Text Crime Series. Set in Gotland, Sweden, this thrillers starts with when a young nurse is found murdered, dressed up as a bride. The discovery awakens an old Nordic myth, forcing Detective Maria Wren to come face-to-face with an intricate web of tangled relationships and evil schemes. Sounds good to me.
Next is Clisson and Eugenie by Napoleon Bonaparte. Yes, that Napoleon. The tragic tale of Clisson and Eugenie reveals one of history’s great leaders as an accomplished writer of fiction. Did you guys know this? I had no idea. Must say I’m intrigued.
Mayhem by Sarah Pinborough is according to the blurb on the back, a sensational fact-based thriller set in shadow, gas-lit London, where monsters stalk the cobbled streets and hide in plain sight. I don’t need to know more to know that I want to read this book.
And, the last book is Delia’s Shadow by Jaime Lee Moyer. From the dust jacket: It is the dawn of a new century in San Francisco, and Delia Martin is a wealthy young woman whose life appears ideal. But a dark secret colors her life, for Delia’s most loyal companions are ghosts, as she has been gifted (or some would say cursed) with an ability to peer across to the other side. This sounds like a great choice for the R.I.P. Challenge don’t you think?
Alright, let me know if you’ve read some of these and what you thought. I am off to catch up on my reading!
