Day 17 - #fallisbooked, the theme is ghost story. This is not quite a story but an episode of Sherlock Hlomes, with maybe a ghost!

I wasn't that impressed with this book. A town in California gets hit by a sleeping sickness and while they sleep they are dreaming. We hear from varies different people and their stories, but unless I missed something, I didn't understand where the virus came from or why it left! Has anyone wlse read it? #books

marleed I just counted and I have 5 holds in the available soon bin. And they‘ve been like that for days. I‘m afraid they‘ll all drop at once. I‘d put a suspend hold on a couple but my luck I‘d pick the wrong ones! (edited) 4d

This book is about Lucy, she breaks up with long term boyfriend and then decides it was a bad idea. She tries to get him back but things don't go to plan. Her half-sister invites her to LA to house and dog sit while she goes to Europe. She goes to therapy and meets Theo, while in LA. This was quite an intriguing book as well as a bit werid. #bookcover

This is the first in this series, Kate Shackleton Mystery. A friend asks Kate to find out why her father disappeared. Set in a quaint Yorkshire village! In a way it is similar to the Maisie Dobbs mysteries, which I also like! #bookseries
