#BookMail Pt8 & 9 I was eying this series for awhile so when I saw it on sale, I snapped up the first two in the series. Set during & after the Great Fire Of London in 1666. When the fire sweeps through St Pauls Cathedral, a mummified body is found in what was supposed to be an empty crypt. The mans body has been mutilated and his thumbs are tied behind his back. James Marwood, government informant, is charged with chasing down the killer.

julesG This reminds me a lot of a German series, set in the days after the Great Fire though. 9mo
julesG I'm wrong, it's set in the days before the fire. Well, I guess I'll have to read both series now. 😉 9mo

#MarchIntoThe70s #day3 #LondonCalling Sorry I‘m a bit late today, the hubby dragged me out of the house to drive up the coast. It was good to get some fresh air, but I‘m exhausted. There were so many I could‘ve used for this prompt, but the song is about an apocalyptic London & the Great Fire Of London in 1666 that burnt the entire medieval part of London was definitely apocalyptic. It would have been terrifying with only buckets to fight with.

Cinfhen That book sounds awesome!! And you didn‘t miss anything - it‘s been impossible to post on Litsy for the past 6 hours 9mo

Audio version. A murder mystery set at the time of The Great Fire of London. Told from two POVs, that of a Government investigator and a young woman connected to a series of violent events. Best dog names ever. 😁 I don't read a lot of historical fiction, or murder mysteries, but I'm hoping to get to the second book in this series soon.

Mehso-so

A pleasant read that never entirely gripped me. The time period (the Restoration) and the setting (London in the aftermath of the Great Fire) promised much but didn't deliver with the gusto I expected. There is a LOT of very dry descriptions of the ruins and the narrative's locations which begin to drag. The big scene towards the end was derailed for me by the endless tedious and hard to envisage descriptions of St Paul's Cathedral. Cont. ⬇️⬇️⬇️

readingjedi The characters are interesting but not hugely original and there is a sexual assault that bugged me. The intrigue is nicely and increasingly, well, intriguing but the ending is a little predictable and anti-climatic. Decently written though and entertaining enough to bother with. However, not sure I'd be reading the sequel if NetGalley hadn't supplied me with it. 12mo

The first book I‘ve finished in what feels like a long while! I feel like I‘m over my slump now!

I enjoyed this more than I thought I would; the plot wasn‘t particularly fast-paced but I enjoyed the speed and I looked forward to finding out what was going to happen next. It wasn‘t mind-blowing but it was really enjoyable! And the historical context (set during the great fire of London) is fascinating!!😍🎉

Now....what to read next dilemma. I had pulled the three books on the bottom to read next. But a bookish friend said she was starting to read Ashes of London. It sounds like something I would love - chunky historical mystery.

So now I just don't know....what to read, what to read...🤔🤔 So sorry, Ashes of London is cut off but it's the tagged book. 😉

1. 1-2 times per week.
2. Mitchell Library in Glasgow, for genealogical purposes. Other choices would be the one in Alexandria and the one from Beauty and the Beast.
3. Ashes of London, Little Fires Everywhere, The Abbot‘s Tale
4. Not certain. When I was young, we lived in a small town and the library didn‘t have cards. The librarian, Mrs Custer, knew everyone anyway. At some point, they did give out little cards with your name.

GarthRanzz I‘d love to visit Mitchell one day myself. Researching online pales in comparison to being able to actually leaf through the actual books. 2y
umbrellagirl @GarthRanzz Absolutely! The last time I visited, I needed some Kirk session records from Eastwood. Out came three volumes dating back to the 17th C! 2y

This was such an interesting read. The great fire of London is a well known piece of history and this story uses that to add to the story. The plot is complex at times but well written. You are easily drawn into the characters and the need to know how their story will turn out.

Enjoyable historical fiction/mystery. Found the time period of post-Cromwell London fascinating. And I learned while I was reading this one that the sequel has just been published so will be adding that to my TBR.

It was slightly too obvious where the story was going to end up and there were unnecessary descriptions of the sprawling plain that was Whitehalll castle. Most of all I wish the ending had been less open for the two main characters, but all in all it was a good read! I liked the interchange of perspectives through which the story was told as well as the historical references, that added but didn't encroach on the story. Entertaining read!

Just finished this book and I feel a bit dissapointed 😕. I expected to really love this historical crime novel, but for me something was missing. The period is interesting, the book well written, for me there was just was no suspense. Three people are murdered, but somehow the hunt for their killer was not really part of this book...

When I was in London this last summer, this book was recommended to me from an amazing bookseller at Daunt Books. I loved it. It was everything I love in a historical fiction- great atmosphere and setting, strong characters interspersed with some historically relevant people and a good story. Highly recommended and especially for the discounted price! Don‘t forget to search for it from your Smile.amazon.com account so a % can go to charity. 😉

Quite an enjoyable historical fiction. Advertised as slightly more of a mystery, but I didn't find it a whodunnit. It was definitely obvious what direction it was taking. Still a great read, with lots of awesome historical detail and a delightful view of London at this time. Going to have to look at other books by this author.

The Ashes of London is about the Fire of 1666 that almost destroyed London. A lot of the city burned down, so only a fraction of it was left. It‘s my favourite city in the world! I absolutely love everything about it. ❤️🇬🇧

I had to bail on this. I didn't connect with any of the characters and I really didn't care where it was going. It was quite descriptive and I felt that I was being told, rather than shown what was happening. I like to be guided through a book, not dragged.
