This Week in Books – 03-06-20

This Week in Books is a feature hosted by Lipsy at Lipsyy Lost and Found that allows bloggers to share:

  • What they’ve recently finished reading
  • What they are currently reading
  • What they are planning to read next

The last book I finished reading was A Caribbean Mystery by Agatha Christie. While I’ve found Christie’s Miss Marple series a little hit and miss, I really enjoyed this one!

An exotic holiday for Miss Marple is ruined when a retired major is killed…

As Jane Marple sat basking in the Caribbean sunshine she felt mildly discontented with life. True, the warmth eased her rheumatism, but here in paradise nothing ever happened.

Eventually, her interest was aroused by an old soldier’s yarn about a strange coincidence. Infuriatingly, just as he was about to show her an astonishing photograph, the Major’s attention wandered. He never did finished the story…

I’m currently reading Within the Sanctuary of Wings by Marie Brennan – the first of my 20 Books of Summer!

After her adventure in the mountains of Vystrana, and her exploits in the depths of Eriga, to the high seas aboard The Basilisk, and then to the deserts of Akhia, the Lady Trent has captivated hearts along with fierce minds.

This concluding volume will finally reveal the truths behind her most notorious adventure – scaling the tallest peak in the world, behind the territory of Scirland’s enemies – and what she discovered there, within the Sanctuary of Wings.

My next book is likely to be To Tell You the Truth by Gilly Macmillan. I do seem to be doing a little better at sticking to a plan at the moment, although I’ve probably just jinxed it!

Lucy Harper has a talent for invention…

She was nine years old when her brother vanished in the woods near home. As the only witness, Lucy’s story of that night became crucial to the police investigation. Thirty years on, her brother’s whereabouts are still unknown.

Now Lucy is a bestselling thriller writer. Her talent for invention has given her fame, fortune, and an army of adoring fans. But her husband, Dan, has started keeping secrets of his own, and a sudden change of scene forces Lucy to confront some dark, unwelcome memories. Then Dan goes missing and Lucy’s past and present begin to collide. Did she kill her husband? Would she remember if she did?

Finally, Lucy Harper is going to tell us the truth.

Cross her heart.
And hope to die.

And that’s my week in books! What are you reading this week? Let me know in the comments! 😎
