Stacking the Shelves #17


Stacking the Shelves is a weekly meme hosted by Reading Reality. It's a place to showcase any books I have purchased, borrowed, or been lucky enough to have been given an advance copy of. Hope you find something that looks interesting to you or that makes you remember a favorite book you need to finish. Enjoy your reading this week :) 

When a book is described as perfect for fans of Anne Perry I'm always interested. This title is similar to one of her mysteries I've read, Silence in Hanover Close. It is also set during the Napoleonic Wars which I love. A returning soldier, a missing girl, and political intrigue make this mystery very enticing. I will be reading this one in the coming weeks for sure. 

I am currently reading Carol McGrath's The Stolen Crown, about Empress Matilda and the Anarchy period. This book was also on sale for me this week and is the first in the She Wolf trilogy. I do not know much about Eleanor of Provence, the wife of Henry III so I want to try this book and move on to the other two after it. I know some of my fellow bloggers really enjoy her novels so I'm looking forward to it. And such gorgeous covers too!

This book I borrowed from the Libby app to listen to on audio. I have been really enjoying Christie books in my car on the way to work. I generally don't like audiobooks but for this author they are a great fit for me. So almost all my audio listens are Christie. I had never heard of this one and as I love Poirot best, I thought I'd try it. I'm not doing the October Read Christie book because it's one I'd already read. But I just wanted to pick another to keep it going. Has anyone read this one? What did you think?
