Historical fiction, Romance

A Proper Charade by Esther Hatch

It has been a while since I read a 'regency romance' which had only romance and no mystery or additional plotline. I read quite a few in college and then reached a saturation point. It has been a decade since then, but I never binged like that again. I have seen quite a few available… Continue reading A Proper Charade by Esther Hatch

A Fatal Finale by Kathleen Marple Kalb

A strong, intelligent and multi-dimensional female lead character and set in an Opera company in 1899 has the capacity to enthral. The historical aspect in this was immersive in such a way that when I watched some police procedurals during my meals, between reading this book, I had to blink and caught myself wondering why… Continue reading A Fatal Finale by Kathleen Marple Kalb

Ellie talks to herself and is described… Continue reading A Very English Murder (A Lady Eleanor Swift Mystery Book 1) by Verity Bright

I cannot point… Continue reading Death in Delft Master Mercurius Mysteries Book 1 by Graham Brack

The Last Paper Crane by Kerry Drewery

There are always so many sides to any story. Since the victors write history, we end up having a lot of information about some events and hardly anything about another. This is probably why, despite reading a considerable chunk of historical fiction, I have never had an opportunity to read about Hiroshima. This is a… Continue reading The Last Paper Crane by Kerry Drewery
