Today feels like a Friday, as I know we have another holiday tomorrow! Happy Fourth of July!
I finished reading Murder in Saint-Germaine by Cara Black and have a brief review/commentary on goodreads. I also finished Betrayal at Iga by Susan Spann, an historical mystery set in 16th century Japan. I will have a review on an online book tour the end of this month.
E-books: Reading Behold the Dreamers by Imbolo Mbue, a borrow from the library.
Behold the Dreamers by Imbolo Mbue, August 23, 2016, Random House.
This is a timely novel about a Cameroon immigrant in New York trying to get his green card for himself and his wife and child. He is lucky enough to get a job as a chauffeur to a Wall Street bigwig, but this is just before the stock market and banking crash that could affect his employer. down the road. It's an easy and interesting read so far.
Three Souls by Janie Chang is also on my ereader. A young woman, recently deceased, returns to memories of her life to reach an understanding that will ease her into the afterlife. With the help of three souls - scholarly, romantic, and wise - she relives the past. I am eager to learn more about 1935 Shanghai, a time of turmoil and war that changed China forever.
Also on my ereader is The Runaway Wife by Elizabeth Birklund, a lighter read.
But no one is sure she wants to be found! Sounds like a fun novel.
