Last Christmas in Paris by Hazel Gaynor and Heather Webb | Kindle | I loved, loved, loved this! Don’t be put off by the title, this is a well researched and emotional epistolary (there’s that word again) novel. You’ll enjoy this if you liked The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.
The Lost Letter by Jillian Cantor | Kindle | In this novel the main character Katie discovers a letter in her philatelist father’s collection that unlocks more than she and her new research companion Benjamin could ever imagine. A fantastic read for fans of World War II fiction who enjoy a letter storyline, and apparently based on a true story.
Tied Up in Tinsel by Ngaio Marsh | hardback, a Christmas gift | I wanted to enjoy this murder mystery, but truth be told, I’ve found it hard going. I’ve yet to get to the discovery of the dead body, but as all the main characters seem to be unpleasant, I don’t really care which one will end up dead.
First published in the UK in 1972, it’s not clear when the story is set and the language feels old fashioned. I may yet put this on the unfinished pile.
