This year my reading included familiar favourite authors and exciting new discoveries. I was introduced to Elly Griffiths‘ Dr Ruth Galloway mysteries which combine murder investigation with archaeology as well as humour and bitter sweet relationships. Here is my review for The Crossing Places
I was pleased to find the wartime books written by Lissa Evans. In The Crooked Heart and V for Victory we meet Vee and young Noel, two misfits in a dangerous world set in a tale of pathos and humour.
Ann Bennett‘s The Lake Pavilion was another dual time novel set in Colonial India and post-war England. Terry Tyler completed her Operation Galton trilogy with Megacity and Adrienne Vaughan‘s A Change of Heart took me back to romantic Ireland.
