Amazing list thank you Chelsea #newyearwhodis2022

I can forgive a few historical bendings of the truth - this is of course fiction. I really enjoyed spending time in the Arctic with these women - seeing their vulnerability in nature actually give them the strength to shake off the constraints they've lived under in nineteenth century society. There's some great detail of the expedition - that helps you really feel the depth of cold a winter in the north can offer. Grab a blanket and dive in!

A fictional imagining of the real life disappearance of Agatha Christie in the mid 1920s. It's a fun page turner with a few jarring niggles (Benedict hasn't quite got the voices right for the English describing the weather and i'm not 100% convinced Mrs Christie would have used the term "unreliable narrator" as often as she does in this book!). But the period detail was great and Benedict creates a very plausible explanation for the mystery!

A novelette which is sparse and plainly written - which creates such an evocative and precise moment in time and place. Every word on the page is important, but seems effortless. The characters and streets we met here, in 1985 Ireland, will stay with me for a long time - I don't know how Keegan did it in such few words!

Mehso-so

Money laundering is just the start of the criminal activities that 'Uncle' Sheeky & family are involved in. But rather than a 'thriller' this is more about trust and the need for family. It's strong on evoking a time & place - from the bodega's of Brooklyn, to coffee shops and community bakeries. But the non linear time line is a little clumsy and the author, whilst pushing for authenticity has over complicated everything! Sometimes less is more!

Faith.Hadden For a hot minute I thought there was actually paint on the book! 😂 2w

Always good to discover a new series! Really liked being back in the Icelandic landscape - surrounded by lava flow, moss and the biting wind. This moved at a fast pace and introduced some characters that im sure will stay for the series. Whilst I enjoyed the writing, the plot was a little simplified and the ending a bit of an anti climax. Saying that - I'll definitely read book 2!
