April TBR

It's been over a month since I last picked up a book! I should really cancel my Kindle membership while I'm not reading or only reading physical books. This month, I'm only aiming to read two books, as I'm still binge watching Greys Anatomy.

Whispers in the Town, Pam Evans
For West London girls Sal and Ann Storey, 1957 should have been one of the happiest years of their lives. Instead, the sisters' world is turned upside down when tragedy strikes. Left to run the family's sweetshop with their grandmother, Sal discovers she has a flair for business - but it doesn't make up for everything she and Ann have lost.
When Sal meets handsome taxi driver Bob Beck and falls deeply in love, it seems that her luck is changing. Bob becomes her one constant, particularly when Ann finally uncovers the guilty secret she's been carrying for so long; a secret which could have explosive consequences. The last thing Sal needs is for Bob's scheming ex-fiancee Kate to reappear - especially as Kate is preparing to make a stunning revelation.

This is 100% not normally a book I would choose as it's set in the late 50's and I'm a modern girl, but one of my service users insisted I borrow it. Here's hoping I can tell her I liked it,eh? To be fair apart from being set during wartime, the actual plot sounds quite interesting and up my street. I'm willing to bet that Kate is pregnant though...

An Expert in Murder, Nicola Upson
It is 1934 and celebrated Scottish crime writer Josephine Tey is on her way to London to see her hit West End play - but her trip is interrupted by the grisly murder of a young train passenger. Detective Inspector Archie Penrose is convinced that the killing is connected to Tey, and that in the flamboyant theatre world lurks a ruthless and spiteful killer who is out to ensure she becomes a victim of her own success...

This is one a different service user told me to take home. Again, not the time frame I like but the genre is. Not 100% convinced I'll enjoy this though but we shall see.

What are you reading this month?

Until next time,
