It's Monday: My New Reads

It's Monday, What Are You Reading? hosted by Book Date Also, visit Mailbox Monday.

My current read is another library borrow,
First Star I See Tonight by Susan Elizabeth Phillips, August 23, 2016.
A star quarterback and a feisty detective play for keeps in this long-awaited new entry in the Chicago Stars football series. (publisher)

"Piper Dove is a woman with a dream—to become the best detective in the city of Chicago. First job? Trail former Chicago Stars quarterback, Cooper Graham. Problem? Graham’s spotted her, and he’s not happy." Sounds promising.

In my mailbox a week or two ago:
The Joy of Love by Pope Francis, May 4, 2016, came from a friend encouraging my speedy recovery after surgery.
The Road ot Ithaca by Ben Pastor by Bitter Lemon Press, March 2017.
The fifth in the Martin Bora WWII mystery series. In May 1941, Wehrmacht officer Bora is sent to Crete, recently occupied by the German army, and must investigate the brutal murder of a Red Cross representative befriended by SS-Chief Himmler. (publisher)

Sounds intriguing, especially since it's fifth in the series.

What are you reading this week?
I've just finished The Waters of Eternal Youth by Donna Leon, a mystery set in Venice, and gave it 5 stars in Goodreads.


  1. I'm on the hold list for the SEP book at my library but I think it will be a while before I get it. So many great reviews for it so I hope we both love it!

  2. All 3 of those books look really interesting, Harvee. I wish I could get to our county library more often...I wonder if the bookmobile is still running.

  8. Enjoy your books!
    I like Donna Leon's series, but I don't think that's one I've read yet. There are so many and I've been reading them out of order, so it's hard to keep track.

  9. I haven't read anything from Susan Elizabeth Phillips for a long time. I need to get back to reading her books!
