Sponsored by In The Hall with the Knife by Diana Peterfreund.
At Blackbrook Academy everyone has a motive . . . for murder. When a storm strikes at Blackbrook Academy, an elite prep school nestled in the woods of Maine, a motley crew of students—Beth “Peacock” Picach, Orchid McKee, Vaughn Green, Sam “Mustard” Maestor, Finn Plum, and Scarlet Mistry—are left stranded on campus with their headmaster. Hours later, his body is found in the conservatory and it’s clear his death was no accident. With this group of students, everyone is hiding something and nothing is as it seems. Fans of the CLUE board game and cult classic film will delight in Diana Peterfreund’s modern reimagining of the brand and its characters.

A Bit Of My Week In Reading
Started 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.
Super 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.
