Woodson Falls: A Gaby Quinn Mystery #1 #2 by Andrea O’Connor

I am always game to try new cozy mystery series. I find the variety interesting, and it is usually an adventure (for me) of some sort. However, this series was different in a whole new way. It has promise, and the leading lady is very diligent at her job.Gaby Quinn is an estate lawyer. This… Continue reading Woodson Falls: A Gaby Quinn Mystery #1 #2 by Andrea O’Connor

The Awakening (The Dragon Heart Legacy #1) by Nora Roberts

In recent years I have mentioned my different reactions to Nora Roberts' books multiple times. With this book, one chapter in, I realised why I used to once devour her books.

Dancing in Thatha’s Footsteps by Srividhya Venkat, Kavita Ramchandran (Illustrator)

This book is available to request on NetGalley until August I was tempted by the cover and the title because I was very close to both of my own grandfathers (The 'thatha' in the title is how many south Indian languages refer to their grandfathers, with the derivative coming from Sanskrit, which originally refers to… Continue reading Dancing in Thatha’s Footsteps by Srividhya Venkat, Kavita Ramchandran (Illustrator)
