"When Posie clears a space in her diary to visit the University town of Cambridge on a personal mission, she finds more than she bargained for, as the past seems to confront her at every turn. She finds herself unwittingly taking on a dangerous new case in which she must try and find out what happened to Dr. William Winter, a brilliant Cambridge doctor who disappeared five years earlier in the chaos of war. But in doing so, Posie is forced to confront her own painful memories of the Great War. And just how safe is it really to go digging up the past?"--Author website.

Christmas reads!
Finished The Vanishing of dr Winter in just 4 days, a book l didn't bailed on at last.
It's set in London and Cambridge after WWI with quite a few changes of identity and a supernatural twist at the end that l didn't see coming, but quite fit the atmosphere.
I expected some more from the end, but it was overall an anjoyable read.

Crinoline_Laphroaig Cover is intriguing! 13mo

I know that technically it isn't winter yet, but l'm still going to start this for the #booked2019 tonight. Is it cheating?

And l've just discovered this is set at Christmas time, so, see? ☺

#FallIntoBooks #SetInFaveEra

I have many novels set in the 1920s around the world. These are a few set in the British Isles.
True, most are mystery, but that's because l'm a mystery reader too. What best may l wish dir than a blend of my two favourite genre?
