So here are some books that I've read lately.
First up is this series by Jacqueline Winspear, Maisie Dobbs.
This book is set after World War I in England. The main character is a psychologist/investigator. I'm on book 6 of the series and am loving it. I'm all about England during this time period right now and there are historical elements along with a mystery. Maisie Dobbs is a very intriguing and lovable character.
I read this book Family Pictures by Jane Green recently as well. It was a good read about family dynamics. Nothing earth shattering but an easy read. Same with All Fall Down. It is the story of a mom who has a drug problem.
I've been reading Elizabeth Peters's Amelia Peabody series. They are set in late 1800s England/Egypt about an archeologist and her family's adventures. I love mysteries and these are a mystery without a lot of gore.
Still Live with Bread Crumbs is the story of a photographer who moves from New York City to the mountains and the changes she goes through.
The last two are books I read a while ago but they were good. I listened to Bringing up Bebe a month or two ago. It is the observations of an American journalist raising her children in Paris. I found it completely fascinating about how Parisians raise their children. So interesting!
The last one Mr. Churchill's Secretary is the first in the Maggie Hope series. This series is set in England during World War II. Maggie Hope is the main character and she starts as Winston's Churchill's secretary but by the end of the book she is spy.
So those are my books I've been reading. I like a wide variety of books and would love to hear about what you are reading.
