Hello book fans! Happy Monday and here’s to a great week with bookish treats galore. I am delighted to welcome another fabulous book blogger to damppebbles today, the ever so lovely Joy Kluver. If you’re a fan of crime fiction then make sure you check out Joy’s blog. You won’t regret it.
Let me explain what #R3COMM3ND3D is all about. It’s a chance for book bloggers, author and publishers to share the book love. An opportunity to shout about three brilliant books the rest of us MUST read. They can be written by any author, published in any way and be in any genre (or a mix thereof). There is a catch though. The books must all have been published in the same year; 2018 to be precise. But make sure you look out for #R3COMM3ND3D2019 starting on 1st November! Fill in the form below if you would like to take part later this year but please note, places are limited. When they’re gone, they’re gone!
Here are Joy’s three choices…
The Good Doctor of Warsaw by Elisabeth Gifford
I think this is possibly the best fiction book I’ve ever read about the Holocaust. Based on the true story of Dr Janusz Korczak and his work in a Warsaw orphanage during WW2, the narrative is both uplifting and heart-breaking. I warn you now – you will need tissues!
Salt Lane (DS Alexandra Cupidi #1) by William Shaw
This is the first in a new series from William Shaw featuring DS Alex Cupidi. We first met her in The Birdwatcher but she was clearly meant to be a leading lady. Shaw manages to weave multiple threads together as DS Cupidi searches for a killer.
A House of Ghosts by W.C. Ryan
Don’t let the W.C. fool you! This is William Ryan and if you’ve read The Constant Soldier, then you’ll know to expect a cracking plot, an atmospheric setting and memorable characters. A thriller/whodunit with a good dose of ghosts makes this the perfect read for an autumn/winter’s afternoon.
Wonderful recommendations, thanks Joy. I’ve added two of your three to my wishlist without a moment’s hesitation!
