I was quite excited to see that Amanda Quick was coming out with a new book, and one that took place in the 1930s! I wasn’t expecting that setting as Jayne Ann Krentz set her Quick books in the Victorian era, while her JAK books are set in the modern era. I have to say that I love this new setting! It doesn’t seem like the 30s is much explored by authors and it was interesting to see this era through Quick’s writing.
“Family fatigue, the persuasive companion of my weary, exhausted heart, that organ that I cannot exorcize of its boundless, quaking dejection.”
I’ve recently come to fall in love with the TV show, Death in Paradise. It is this fantastic show set in Jamaica, where a British policeman is brought over from the U.K. to solve the murder of another British policeman. It is filled with both humor and drama, and it has quickly become a favorite.
One of my favorite British TV shows is Midsomer Murders. It’s been going on for years, and through many cast changes, but it’s still one of my favorites. Set in the English countryside, it follows a veteran DCI and his sergeant as they solve murders in the regional community of Midsomer County.
I am joining in with the lovely Lipsy @ Lipsy’s Lost and Found’s feature which highlights our week in books. A similar theme is run by Sam @ Taking On A World of Words.
