Finished Murder in the Sapphire & Night Train to Paris. Bottom row are books I am still reading. Not quite 20 hours but very satisfied with the amount of time I spent reading.

Hmm, not bad—in fact perfectly serviceable—but not particularly memorable. Two tourists are murdered in a famous Paris cemetery—the son of an American senator & a girl with ties to a suspected terrorist—and personnel at the American embassy investigate. There‘s some grave robbing, a couple of likable characters & a really strong Silence of the Lambs vibe but, as I said, nothing about the book stands out. Ok, but not great.

Summer, with all of its opportunities for (extra) reading, is no time for a book funk and yet I can feel one looming... Ugh! Seriously, this is no time to stare at the TBR shelves and find nothing that looks interesting. So, trying to hold off a book funk by doing something I rarely do—reading the second book in a series before I‘ve read the first. I think I picked this one up at BEA a couple of years ago. Fingers crossed it keeps me engaged...

This was very good. I'm really liking this series. Who doesn't like a good mystery set in Paris? I'm excited to go there in May. 💖📚🇫🇷🗼

A new beginning. Loved the first book. The Bookseller hope this one is just as good.
