Currently reading Iona Whishaw's A Deceptive Devotion, the sixth and most recent of her Lane Winslow / Inspector Darling mysteries that are set in rural British Columbia in the late 1940's. Quite enjoyable, as this whole series has been, with the sole exception of the 4th, which I did not particularly enjoy. The main character, Lane Winslow, is roughly based on the author's mother, who was a spy during WWII.

Also listening to An Overture to Death, the 8th of Ngaio Marsh's Inspector Roderick Alleyn mysteries. The beginning was a bit tedious, but I'm past that now and quite enjoying it. The narration by Nadia May (real name Wanda McCaddon) is superb, as always.
Finished both, and quite enjoyed both. Next up, the second of N.K. Jemisin's Inheritance trilogy -- The Broken Kingdoms. So far, quite enjoying it.

Next up: The Blood Card by Elly Griffiths. The third in her post-WWII mystery series.
Which was splendid. A most enjoyable mystery, and good characters, set in 1953 Brighton and London.

Next up: The Burning Land, the fifth in Bernard Cornwell's historical fiction set in the time of King Alfred.

I've been reading And Then There Were Crumbs by Eve Calder. Excellent first act, followed by the same old cosy fare. The major mystery is still intact. If that pays off then this will be a major and strong 5 star book.

Finished the novella "Perfect State" by Brandon Sanderson. Interesting virtual reality with a twist ending. Rated C [3 stars].

Next John Flanagan's The Emperor of Nihon-Ja. The tenth in the Ranger's Apprentice series.

Read my cosy mystery. 4 stars. Now I'm reading the sixth wicked child. Pretty good stuff.

Just finished Thirteen by Steve Cavanagh and it was a very good book I would describe as a legal procedural. Give it four stars

Just finished reading Spy by Danielle Steel

Spy by Danielle Steel is such a well written, detailed, and page-turner novel. The book is filled with action-pack adventure, humor, romance, and is especially a super tearjerker. Get ready for one heck of a read and have tissues at the side. Danielle portrays Alexandra as a well-rounded character, she shows no fear when taking up new challenges and yet she’s such a sweetheart with her loved ones.

Which was, as expected, a good read.

Next I read Grantville Gazette #85. Less Grantville content that I'd expected. I'm not sure I'll get the next bundle.

Then I read both Analog SF/F and Asimov's SF magazines for Sep/Oct 2019. Both were good - some splendid stories. Well worth the £2.49 individual issue price.

And now I'm starting The Daughter of Time by Josephine Tey. It sounds interesting,

This was the selection of the New Leaf Book Club for April. Feel free to comment in the thread. Book club threads stay active indefinitely, and you might find some comments of interest there.

Read a mention of the Slonsky and Navratil crime series by Graham Brack, set in Prague. They're available via Kindle Unlimited, or one-title-per-month free with Amazon Prime. So far, the first book Lying and Dying is proving a great read - would do very well for a plane trip!

When I noticed it was an Alan Grant book, I switched to The Franchise Affair. Which I then found that although technically an Alan Grant book, he plays almost no part in it at all


I enjoyed The Franchise Affair. Not much mystery, but a nice description of the characters and the finding of a solution.

Next up: F&SF, Sep/Oct 2019.

I finished my re-read of Rebecca West's The Fountain Overflows. I will now be taking a break to do a quick re-read of The Shepherd's Life and The Year of Magical Thinking for the new leaf and literary book clubs respectively.

Sachiko (who is bigger than some adult cats at only 2.5 months old!) is reading Fables.

Perhaps there's a memoir in her future, I Also Am a Cat, perhaps?

Bringing this back around to topic, I'm almost done with I Am a Cat!

I admire your fortitude, issybird!

Meanwhile, having finished The Shepherd's Life in good time for the Club discussion, and having sidetracked myself onto a reread of a 1913 book set in the same area of England, I am now reading Loving by Henry Green, set in Ireland during the period of the Second World War. Eire was of course neutral, so it gives a very different feeling in terms of observing the war at a distance.
