War and Peace – my review here

Demelza – I enjoyed this just as much as Poldark, the first book in the series which I reviewed here. Almost all the best lines of the BBC adaption, all those wonderful Lizzie Bennet-like comebacks, are taken from the books.

Mrs. Roosevelt’s Confidante: A Maggie Hope Mystery – Set during WWII, this is book 5 in the series and I loved it, but since I read it as a NetGalley ARC I’ll post its review closer to the publication date. I will say that while not avoiding serious issues it’s much less dark than book 3–Maggie’s in the US this time and one of the characters meets Walt Disney!
