Booklover Mailbox – A Murder in Time, Marked for Life & Vancouver

A Murder in Time, Marked For Life, Vancouver

A Murder in Time by Julie McElwainA Murder in Time by Julie McElwain

This title, the first in a planned Kendra Donovan mysteries series, was one of the April 2016 book releases that caught my eye. Kick arse female lead, mystery and time-travel… sounds like a fun read after some of the more intense titles I’ve been immersed in recently.

When brilliant FBI agent Kendra Donovan stumbles back in time and finds herself in a 19th century English castle under threat from a vicious serial killer, she scrambles to solve the case before it takes her life―200 years before she was even born.

My own purchase.

Marked for Life by Emelie ScheppMarked for Life by Emelie Schepp

I had this one on pre-order so was a nice surprise when it landed in my Kindle Reading App on 1 July. International bestselling author Emelie Schepp introduces us to the enigmatic, unforgettable Jana Berzelius in this first novel of a suspenseful, chilling trilogy.

A fast-paced thriller with a good blend of police procedure, the draw of a ninja-strong female lead, and enough adrenaline to make a good night’s sleep a near impossibility.” -Booklist

Vancouver, Novella 3 in Wisdom Tree by Nick EarlsVancouver (Novella 3, Wisdom Tree) by Nick Earls

I thought the writing in Gotham and Venice, Novellas 1 and 2 of this series, was first class and so am looking forward to reading this next instalment.

Vancouver is the story Paul would tell if he were living in plague times—a story that comforts, a story that wards of evil. His story is about the giant that influenced his life, it’s about the day the world changed, and it’s about what happens when our giants come tumbling down. Think, any one of Giovanni Boccaccio’s stories from, Decameron

I’ll write my review in September after all 5 interlinked stories have been published.
