I have been reading novels again.
After finishing Tasha Alexander’s latest I jumped into Tangerine.
It is so refreshing to dive deep into a novel and just travel time and space freely.
Taking place in Tangiers after WWII it was a wonderful sensory trip into Morocco. I enjoyed it, but also felt that since I am a huge noir fan, it seemed familiar, if not a touch predictable. If this is your first foray into fiction with a Hitchcockian, noir feel then it will be a good one for you.
Right before I ran off to Dallas I grabbed All Fall Down, an MG mystery by Ally Carter.
My youngest read a number of her novels when she was around 11/12. I needed to be back in that mindset a bit before I went to the conference and I enjoyed it.
To Die But Once by Jacqueline Winspear was a novel, like Tasha Alexander’s, that I was waiting for.
Lady Emily (Alexander), Maisie Dobbs (Winspear) and Mary Russell (King) are the three women who carried me through some dark times and into the light filled days I have now.
I love this series about Maisie Dobbs and the time period it covers from before WWI to the beginning of WWII. I love mysteries and if they are historical mysteries then I am over the moon. Needless to say Laurie R King’s latest is by my bed having been begun last night. If you like historical mystery then these three series are for you. And they will help pass the time until the next Outlander comes out!
