I'm reading I Shot the Buddha by Colin Cotterill, a mystery with a lot of humor, set in Laos. I finished The Sleepwalker: A Novel by Chris Bohjalian, a mystery about a missing mother, with a twist at the end; and finished The Kommandant's Girl by Pam Jenoff. a WWII novel set in Poland. Also finished, Cooking for Picasso, a novel by Camille Aubray, I enjoyed them all.
Two new books on my shelf:
A proof of Chemistry: A Novel by Weike Wang, May 23, 2017, by Knopf.
Described as " a luminous coming-of-age novel about a young female scientist who must recalibrate her life when her academic career goes off track." Set in Boston.
The Last Chance Olive Ranch by Susan Wittig Albert, April 4, 2017, Berkley.
China Bayles fears for her husband’s life as an escaped convict targets him...
My Kindle borrows from the library:
The Light in the Ruins by Chris Bohjalian, a novel published in 2013, about an Italian family, the Rosatis, in Florence during WWII. Fast forward to 1955, when someone is targeting the remainder of the Rosati family, and a young Florentine detective is assigned to the case.
Another intriguing historical novel of WWII. I finished the author's new novel, The Sleepwalker, and am looking up all his earlier novels. This is the first in the list that I'll be reading.
I also have the ebook of
The Dressmaker's Dowry by Meredith Jaeger, February 7, 2017, William Morrow.
The book description: "the story of two women: one, an immigrant seamstress who disappears from San Francisco’s gritty streets in 1876, and the other, a young woman in present day who must delve into the secrets of her husband’s wealthy family only to discover that she and the missing dressmaker might be connected in unexpected ways."
Unfinished books which I plan to get back to include: The Day I Died, The Sun King Conspiracy, and My Last Lament.
