Hello mystery fans!
Sponsored by Looking For Garbo by Jon James Miller.
In Looking For Garbo, tabloid NYC reporter Seth Moseley gets a hot tip that movie goddess Greta Garbo is stowed aboard an ocean liner bound for Europe on September 1, 1939. He boards the vessel, desperate to get a candid photo and pay off some hefty gambling debts. But he gets more than he bargained for when Seth realizes the reclusive Garbo is actually sailing on to Nazi Germany, on a secret mission to stop WWII before it can start by assassinating her biggest fan – Adolf Hitler. Miller’s debut novel is filled with action, thrills and golden age Hollywood glamour.

A Bit Of My Week In Reading
Finished reading: The Confessions of Frannie Langton by Sara Collins (There have been a few crime-novels-unlike-all-the-others lately in the historical crime category and I want a lot more of them! And the audiobook narrator was great!); Five Midnights by Ann Dávila Cardinal (This is a mystery novel + a horror novel set in Puerto Rico and I loved it!); The Winters by Lisa Gabriele (A modern retelling of Rebecca–suspense I inhaled!).
Galleys I just got: Theme Music by T. Marie Vandelly (A thriller getting buzz!); Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead by Olga Tokarczuk, Antonia Lloyd-Jones (Anything with a title like that must be read!)
