Arriving on the windswept Ile de R� off the coast of France, Tabby Dewhurst is heartbroken and penniless, unable even to afford a room for the night. Then she overhears a villager repeating aloud the access code to her front door and, hardly believing her own actions, Tabby waits for the villager to leave and lets herself into the house . . . And so she enters the strange, hidden world of Emmie, whose sudden offer of friendship is at odds with her obsession with her own privacy. Soon Tabby begins to form suspicions about Emmie, suspicions that will lead her back to England – and to a scandal with shattering consequences. Amazon

20 books of summer logo Next up I am looking forward to reading The Anatomy of Death by Felicity Young An Anatomy of Death Blurb

At the turn of the twentieth century, London’s political climate is in turmoil, as women fight for the right to vote. Dody McCleland has her own battles to fight. As England’s first female autopsy surgeon, not only must she prove herself, she must prove that murder treats everyone equally… After a heated women’s rights rally turns violent, an innocent suffragette is found murdered. When she examines the body, Dody McCleland is shocked to realize that the victim was a friend of her sister—fueling her determination to uncover the cause of the protestor’s suspicious death. For Dody, gathering clues from a body is often easier than handling the living—especially Chief Detective Inspector Pike. Pike is looking to get to the bottom of this case but has a hard time trusting anyone—including Dody. Determined to earn Pike’s trust and to find the killer, Dody will have to sort through real and imagined secrets. But if she’s not careful, she may end up on her own examination table… Amazon

      1. That’s right, she was kind enough to send you it if I recall. I’d forgotten she was behind Sudden Disappearance of Frasers. I do want to read it, and it has a classy minimalist cover, but I’d never be drawn to a book like Emily Marr. I wonder if the Fraser’s one is a change of style, genre, publisher, maybe? You did like it, I’m pretty sure. Be interesting to hear about Emily Marr. I’m assuming you were on holiday for a week or two; I hope you had a lovely time and read loads and ate loads and drank loads and laughed loads!!


  1. So glad you’re planning to read some Felicity Young, Cleo. I think her Dody McLeland series is great. And the other two look really interesting as well.


  2. I just started Elizabeth Hand’s Wylding hall:
    When the young members of a British acid-folk band are compelled by their manager to record their unique music, they hole up at Wylding Hall, an ancient country house with dark secrets. There they create the album that will make their reputation, but at a terrifying cost: Julian Blake, the group’s lead singer, disappears within the mansion and is never seen or heard from again.

    Now, years later, the surviving musicians, along with their friends and lovers—including a psychic, a photographer, and the band’s manager—meet with a young documentary filmmaker to tell their own versions of what happened that summer. But whose story is true? And what really happened to Julian Blake?

    I’m a sucker for books about rock bands so I want to see how this is. Never read this author before.


  3. I always like seeing what you’ve been reading or what you are considering reading. Of course, it adds to my list, which is eons long. LOL


  4. The Disappearance of Emily Marr sounds really intriguing. I might have to see if my library has it.

    I read The Anatomy of Death not long after it came out and I really enjoyed it. I’ll have to go and see what other books in the series are out now; that was getting on for three years ago and I always meant to go back.
