A Bit Of My Week In Reading

The Missing American cover imageStarted reading: The Missing American by Kwei Quartey, which so far follows a fired cop in Ghana becoming a PI, the people who create email scams asking for money (super interesting to see the other side of it), and a widowed American who has just fallen for one of the scams and traveled to Ghana.

Finished: I listened to and really enjoyed The Secrets We Kept by Lara Prescott, which is a historical fiction that follows various women during the Cold War who were secretaries and spies. (TW groping/ attempted rape, on page/ sexual harassment/ past suicide mention, no detail) And I read Front Desk by Kelly Yang about a girl working with her parents at a motel and this is an all time favorite book for me.

A Murderous Relation cover imageSuper excited galley scores: I got the next books in two of my favorite historical mysteries series! A Murderous Relation (Veronica Speedwell, #5) by Deanna Raybourn and Death of an American Beauty (Jane Prescott #3) by Mariah Fredericks.
