I am currently reading Redemption by Jill McGown as part of my Goodreads Mount TBR challenge which will see me reading 36 of my own books over the next year. I loved this series when it was first released but not having read them all at the time, due to availability at the library, I vowed to read them all on kindle when they were re-released in 2014. I’ve got a long way; this is the second in the series, previously released with the title Murder at the Old Vicarage.
A white Christmas. Deepening snow isolated the village from the outside world. By the time the body in the vicarage was discovered, Byford was cut off altogether . . . A domestic murder – Chief Inspector Lloyd thought it would be an open and shut case. But it turned out to be as complex and perplexing as his relationship with Sergeant Judy Hill. And both of them seemed to be slipping from his grasp . . Amazon
The last book I finished was the amazing A Dangerous Crossing by Rachel Rhys which will be published on 23 March 2017 which I chose to read for my The First Book of the Year 2017 for very special reasons. So if you’ve read that, you’ll know I was pre-disposed to enjoy this book, it surpassed my expectations – I loved it!
It was a first class deception that would change her life forever
1939, Europe on the brink of war. Lily Shepherd leaves England on an ocean liner for Australia, escaping her life of drudgery for new horizons. She is instantly seduced by the world onboard: cocktails, black-tie balls and beautiful sunsets. Suddenly, Lily finds herself mingling with people who would otherwise never give her the time of day.
But soon she realizes her glamorous new friends are not what they seem. The rich and hedonistic Max and Eliza Campbell, mysterious and flirtatious Edward, and fascist George are all running away from tragedy and scandal even greater than her own.
By the time the ship docks, two passengers are dead, war has been declared, and life will never be the same again. Amazon
Next up is Relativity by Antonia Hayes which promises to be ‘Genuinely difficult to put down’ according to Graeme Simsion, author of The Rosie Project.
