The Perfect Couple

It’s Nantucket wedding season, also known as summer-the sight of a bride racing down Main Street is as common as the sun setting at Madaket Beach. The Otis-Winbury wedding promises to be an event to remember: the groom’s wealthy parents have spared no expense to host a lavish ceremony at their oceanfront estate.

But it’s going to be memorable for all the wrong reasons after tragedy strikes: a body is discovered in Nantucket Harbor just hours before the ceremony-and everyone in the wedding party is suddenly a suspect. As Chief of Police Ed Kapenash interviews the bride, the groom, the groom’s famous mystery-novelist mother, and even a member of his own family, he discovers that every wedding is a minefield-and no couple is perfect.

I haven’t read anything by Elin Hilderbrand before, but I will certainly be reading more! I loved The Perfect Couple! Full review will be up tomorrow!

Murder in Chinatown

Sarah Brandt has made her uneasy way to Chinatown to deliver a baby. There she meets a group of Irish women who, completely alone at Ellis Island, married Chinese men in the same predicament. But even as a new century dawns, New Yorkers still cling to their own kind, scorning children of mixed races.

When the new mother’s half-Chinese, half-Irish niece goes missing, Sarah knows that alerting the police will accomplish nothing, and seeks the one person she can turn to-Detective Sergeant Malloy.

And when the missing girl is found dead in a Chinatown alley, Sarah and Malloy have ample suspects in her murder-from both sides of Canal Street.

I love this series! It’s focused on a widowed midwife in New York City at the turn of the century!

What do you think you’ll read next?

Do Not Disturb

After what happened in London, Kirsty needs a fresh start with her family. 
And running a guesthouse in the Welsh mountains sounds idyllic.

But then their first guest arrives.
Selena is the last person Kirsty wants to see.
It’s seventeen years since she tore everything apart.

Why has she chosen now to walk back into Kirsty’s life? Is Selena running from something too? Or is there an even darker reason for her visit?

Because Kirsty knows that once you invite trouble into your home, it can be murder getting rid of it…

I never started reading this last week, but should get to it this week!

  1. This looks like a fun tag! I haven’t read any of the three you listed. For fiction, I just finished Every Body Has a Story by Beverly Gologorsky; I am currently reading The Teacher, the Seamstress and the Pianist by Ogenna Ojukwu; next up is Before She Sleeps by NIna Shah. Happy reading!

  2. These all sound good! I just finished Quidditch Through the Ages, I’m working on To Kill a Kingdom, and I have NO IDEA what is coming after that. 😂

  3. I like the look of Do Not Disturb and The Perfect Couple. I have some books written by midwives Call The Midwife (made into a TV show) was set in London in the 1950’s the other is called 12 Babies on a Bike is set in the 50’s about a student midwife in the UK. I don’t tend to read historical fiction (there has been the odd exception and I enjoy some classics) so probably wouldn’t go for Murder in Chinatown.

  4. Just finished reading Time Crawlers (So, so, so good), Currently struggling with Ruined ( moving at snail’s pace, but it still early so fingers crossed it’ll pick up) and next I’ll be reading a horror call Cotton Tale.
