A Bit Of My Week In Reading

I acquired: Grab a Snake by the Tail: A Murder in Havana’s Chinatown by Leonardo Padura, Peter Bush (Translated) an upcoming release in the Mario Conde Cuban detective series (TW suicide). The next book in Abby L. Vandiver’s zanny cozy mystery series: Potions, Tells, & Deadly Spells. Ruth Ware’s upcoming psychological The Turn Of The Key.

I finished the audiobooks: A Beautiful Corpse (Harper McClain #2) by Christi Daugherty, Sophie Amoss (Narrator) which follows a journalist in Savannah (TW stalking); A Lady’s Guide to Etiquette and Murder by Dianne Freeman, Sarah Zimmerman (Narrator) a historical cozy mystery about a wealthy widow accused of her husband’s murder.

My current mystery break reads: Intercepted by Alexa Martin is a perfect romcom giving life to my black heart, which is a perfect balance to Samira Ahmed’s Internment, which is really good but also too real.
