An Extravagant Death (Charles Lenox Mysteries, #11) by Charles Finch

Rating: 4 out of 5.

This is the eleventh book in this series, but it’s the first one that I’ve read. Despite that, I didn’t have a hard time understanding what was going on. The mystery is a stand-alone and there is enough backstory throughout the book for me to get an understanding of the main characters.

The Russian Cage (Gunnie Rose #3) by Charlaine Harris

Rating: 4 out of 5.

This is a great finish to this book series……or is it?? I just discovered that the author is writing a fourth Gunnie Rose book (release date 2022) – no idea what the plot will be because the main storyline of this series wrapped up in this book, but there are definitely enough loose ends to continue the series another several books, which I would love.

The Incredible Winston Browne by Sean Dietrich

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I loved this book. It’s a heart-warming, quiet book that reaffirms your belief in love and friendship. It’s set sometime after WWII (I think maybe the early 50’s) in a tiny town in Florida. Sheriff Winston Browne watches over his town with a generous spirit, even after he receives terrible, life-altering news. When a young girl with a dangerous secret shows up in town all alone, Winston takes her under his wing and ensures she is cared for and protected. That includes housing her with his best friend’s girlfriend, who he starts to romance after she and his best friend part ways.

The Bone Maker by Sarah Beth Durst

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Durst has done it again -written a fantastic, can’t-put-down, stand alone fantasy book. I love her writing, I love her characters and I love her original story-telling. I get excited every time she releases a new book – and this one does not disappoint.

The story is set in the kingdom of Vos. The kingdom has bone makers who can animate bones to create objects that can do a variety of things, like clean, send messages, etc. They also create charms that give people a limited amount of “super-powers”, like strength, speed, stealth, etc. These creations are made from animal bones – the use of human bones is illegal.

The Paris Library by Janet Skeslien Charles

Rating: 4 out of 5.

This is a very good historical fiction set in Paris during WWII and is based on a true story. Odile is a young French girl who dreams of working at the American Library in Paris. She obtains her dream job, forming deep friendships with the other workers. She also starts to date a handsome police officer introduced to her by her father. When war breaks out and the Nazis occupy Paris, she and her fellow librarians are determined to keep the library open. They send valuable books out of town to safety, and they smuggle books to Jewish patrons that are forbidden from going to the library.

Hit Me With Your Best Scot (Wild Wicked Highlanders #3) by Suzanne Enoch

Rating: 4 out of 5.

This is a fun and flirty historical romance set in Victorian London. This is the third book in the series. I haven’t read the first two, but it didn’t affect my enjoyment of this book.
