Weekly Wrap-up : (1/02/’21) #WeeklyWrapup #WeekinReading

Hello Readers! I hope you all are safe and had great week. This was went well. I read 2 books started watching Bridgerton. It’s definitely much more better than Teen Wolf I was watching. I just watched 2 episodes and I already love it. I hope to watch more episodes this week.

What I read last week –

Georgana’s Secret by Arlem Hawks

This was lovely and interesting regency romance. I enjoyed description of HMS Deborah. It was interesting to read life at sea and challenge of convoy mission in era of Napoleonic war. Storm, disease, battle, insubordination, crew’s displeasure and even mutiny made story atmospheric. Romance gave light touch to it. I enjoyed reading Gergana and Dominic’s friendship, their growing relationship, strong bond, and conversations between them. Read full review HERE.

Not Like the Movies (Waiting for Tom Hanks #2) by Kerry Winfrey

This was lovely romcom story of Chloe. While Annie had lots of movie references in first book, Chloe had 80s sitcom and music references. I enjoyed sexual tension between Nick and Chloe, their banter and Chloe’s monologue but I liked it little less than Waiting For Tom Hanks as Chloe was messing up things a lot by overreacting and hurting my favourite characters. I really wanted to shake her few times and make her see what she was doing and why she was reacting in certain way. But I was so happy when she finally made things right and oh I loved the end. It might be 4.5 stars from me.

Next I’ll be reading-

Murder on the Menu (The Nosey Parker Mysteries #1) by Fiona Leitch

The first book in a NEW cosy mystery series!
Still spinning from the hustle and bustle of city life, Jodie ‘Nosey’ Parker is glad to be back in the Cornish village she calls home. Having quit the Met Police in search of something less dangerous, the change of pace means she can finally start her dream catering company and raise her daughter, Daisy, somewhere safer.

But there’s nothing like having your first job back at home to be catering an ex-boyfriend’s wedding to remind you of just how small your village is. And when the bride, Cheryl, vanishes Jodie is drawn into the investigation, realising that life in the countryside might not be as quaint as she remembers…

With a missing bride on their hands, there is murder and mayhem around every corner but surely saving the day will be a piece of cake for this not-so-amateur sleuth?

The first book in the Murder on the Menu cosy mystery series. Can be read as a standalone. A humorous cosy mystery with a British female sleuth in a small village. Includes one of Jodie’s Tried and Tested Recipes! Written in British English. Mild profanity and peril. 

The Invisible Woman by Erika Robuck

“An extraordinary profile of immense courage and daring.”Chanel Cleeton, New York Times bestselling author of Before We Left Cuba

“If you only read one WWII book this year, make it this one.”–Natasha Lester, New York Times bestselling author of The Paris Orphans

In the depths of war, she would defy the odds to help liberate a nation…a gripping historical novel based on the remarkable true story of World War II heroine Virginia Hall, from the bestselling author of Hemingway’s Girl

France, March 1944. Virginia Hall wasn’t like the other young society women back home in Baltimore–she never wanted the debutante ball or silk gloves. Instead, she traded a safe life for adventure in Europe, and when her beloved second home is thrust into the dark days of war, she leaps in headfirst.

Once she’s recruited as an Allied spy, subverting the Nazis becomes her calling. But even the most cunning agent can be bested, and in wartime trusting the wrong person can prove fatal. Virginia is haunted every day by the betrayal that ravaged her first operation, and will do everything in her power to avenge the brave people she lost.

While her future is anything but certain, this time more than ever Virginia knows that failure is not an option. Especially when she discovers what–and whom–she’s truly protecting.

Have you read any of these books or going to read soon? What are you planning to read this week?
