3.5/5
I haven‘t read much Nordic noir, so I don‘t have much to compare this to, but I did enjoy this. Some parts were predictable but there were definitely still some twists and turns. The ending was a bit long-winded for me and the detectives weren‘t my favorite — broken but still seemed shallow. However, it was still entertaining and will keep an eye out more from this author.

I loved Sweatpea and In Bloom so have high expectations for this #ARC by the same author. So pleased I won a copy!

Peterfox123 Thank you! Via Twitter, CJ Skuse told me the third volume of Sweetpea is ages away. This will help to fill the gap nicely 5d
Ms_T @Peterfox123 I‘m afraid you‘ll have to wait for this one too - I have the ARC as the book isn‘t officially released until 6th February 2020. 5d
Peterfox123 @Ms_T You‘re just a tease, you are. Sulking. 5d

Rhys Bowen‘s new book drops February 2020 and, if you‘re a fan of Queen Victoria and all things Victorian, you may enjoy this novel about a young gentlewoman, Isabella, who falls on hard times and discovers she loves to cook. Assuming a false identity, Bella ends up cooking for the royal household and travels to Nice. Not as funny as the “Her Royal Spyness” series and lacking the depth of “In Fairleigh Field,” it‘s still a fun light read. #arc

Got this #Goodreads #Giveaway #ARC in the mail today. And as much as I'm enjoying The Last Time I Lied.... I really want to start this one.

It was so-so until the author got to the part about her Legal Aid advocacy for poor women in Kentucky, and the book filled with fire and passion. I liked the parts about the tough women in her family, and she touches on social issues in Appalachia, but I feel the book tried to cover too much. It was sweet, and I am full of admiration for the author for coming home and pitching in instead of dissing the place from afar. #arc
