#deardecember #treesinthetitle

A cozy mystery set in 1930s Singapore. In all honesty, I read this less for the plot, and more for the setting and main character, an independent young local girl and amateur sleuth who works alongside the police.

Sadly, I felt the portrayal of the teenager with learning difficulties could have been (lots) better.

I would, however, give her books another try sometime.

Day 4 - #TreesInTheTitle #DearDecember

Elly Griffiths‘ Ruth Galloway series is one of my favorites! The tagged book is a novella with only 29 pages which is an enjoyable read!

rwmg Currently reading A Dying Fall 2mo
EadieB @rwmg Keep going as they just get better and better! 2mo
rwmg TBH, I think she needs a better editor as I keep seeing historical slips 2mo
EadieB @rwmg Haven't notice anything like that but live in the US so the history I am not too strong in. Have read all of them with a group and 2 from UK but they never mentioned anything that didn't add up. 2mo
rwmg From A Dying Fall:

She is going into alien territory, and for a moment she thinks she understands how the Roman legions must have felt, leaving the sunny comfort of Italy and travelling northwards to the barbarous lands of the AngloSaxons.

The Anglo Saxons were post Roman

rwmg Also:

Your Roman chap could be using the raven as a symbol of British unity against the Picts, the Celts and the Saxons.

‘Rex Arthurus, thinks Ruth. Britannorum Rex. King Arthur. King of the Britons.

The Britons WERE Celts

EadieB @rwmg You must really know your history in order to catch those mistakes! 2mo
EadieB @rwmg Very interesting! 2mo
