Amazing, funny, talented, foolish....what an assortment!
Oh, blessed relief! We are due some rain and a cool front! What a timely gift, as children have started back to school and won't be suffering from heat exhaustion on the buses!
I received a review ebook of Kristina Ohlsson's The Chosen in July. And since I enjoyed it, decided to begin with the first in the series featuring Fredrika Bergman and Alex Recht. Thanks to the library, I was able to pick up Unwanted, Silenced (reviewed on my book blog), and The Disappeared (which I haven't reviewed yet.
Ohlsson fits right in with some of my other favorites in the Scandinavian Crimegenre.
Right now, I'm reading The Six: The Lives of the Mitford Sisters. My background on the Mitfords was limited: Nancy as the author of Love in a Cold Climate, Diana as the beauty who married Oswald Mosley, the fascist--that was about the extent of my knowledge. The sisters are iconic and are frequently alluded to in fiction, and of course, the subject of many nonfiction accounts. When NetGalley offered the book for review, I decided to learn more about these sisters whose lives are almost stranger than fiction.
The Six appears to be a reissue in ebook format of Thompson's 2015 book Take Six Girls: The Lives of the Mitford Sisters.
