The Killing Code | Ellie Marney

Essentially a young Bletchley Circle set during the war and in America with a sweet sapphic love story. We have a team of 4, including a clever maid masquerading as her employer and a Black codebreaker destined to be a computer at NASA. Important war work and crimes connected in ways only the girls see.
Plenty of catnip for me!

New Book Cover (2024) - Required due to book USA publishers not accepting a book cover with a small German swastika flag upon it - which was nothing more than an historical reference regarding the storyline of the book. It seems our society is becoming more and more controlled by the political lefties, cancel culture and the woke culture ideology followers.

When a local rat returns home claiming her husband has been murdered, & that the rat claiming to be her husband is an impostor, it‘s up to Vera Vixen to investigate.

Good grief I just really love these stories. The settings are so cozy & chill, w/ returning minor characters, & follow through of previous storylines! Chef‘s kiss. Makes me want to rewatch something like Rosemary and Thyme, and immediately start the next book! 🌕🌕🌕🌕🌑

7-10-24: My 22nd finished book of 2024! The Fury starts off with a singular narrator telling the story of the love of his life and how things unraveled through a series of events he tries to control. After learning of a treachery, Lana, a retired famous movie star, invites her closest friends to her island in Greece. As our narrator becomes more unreliable we learn through many twists that things are not what they seem. ⭐️⭐️⭐️📖#️⃣2️⃣2️⃣

I enjoyed this book. I didn‘t feel like it was as disturbing at the end as The Maidens, by I can now see that his writing style is layering twist at the end. Which I do enjoy. Some were obvious to me others were a complete surprise. He does make you question everyone and what is it that he‘s hiding. He also showed in both books the two sides of childhood trauma playing out. I also continue to love that it has a backdrop of Greece and its myths.

I love this cozy mystery series! Vera the fox is on the case again, out to prove her good friend Joe the moose innocent. Bones are discovered, belonging to his wife who disappeared years ago, and they show that she was murdered! Vera must balance her investigation with her news reporter duties and her blossoming romance with the deputy of police.
Honestly I'm here less for the mystery, and more for the cozy woodland neighborhood vibes

The protagonist of this great mystery, Sergeant Joe Swallow, is a complex interesting character and I look forward to reading the later titles in the series. In the midst of the worst heatwave on record, Dublin prepares for Victoria‘s Golden Jubilee; two women have been murdered and dissidents threaten the festivities. Swallow believes the two murders are linked and that the unrest is related but some superiors want his investigation stopped.

B-Slasher, anyone? This one provides the tropey fun, but lacks in uniqueness. Check out my full review on my blog 👇🏽
