This weekly meme was started by @Lauren’s Page Turners. It is now being hosted by Budget Tales Book Blog. To participate, choose a random book from your GoodReads TBR and show it off. Which sounds easy enough until you have to decide how to choose that book! I think I will use a different way each week, like picking a color or number of pages. I will let you know each week how I chose the book and then something interesting about it, like how it ended up on the list or why I want to read it. Got it? Okay let’s get started.
There are so many good books coming out this spring, and many of them are on my TBR. I have also been pretty lucky in that I have ARC’s for many of them as well. This week’s GoodReads pick is the third in a series that I have been enjoying and I am pretty sure this one will also be good. It is one that I have the ARC for so I should be picking it up in the next few weeks.
Marion Lane and the Raven’s Revenge by T.A. Willberg
Publication Date: June 6, 2023
Summary from GoodReads:
The raven had struck. And thing was, she knew exactly who was next…
London, 1960. Marion Lane, a twenty-five-year-old apprentice detective at the elusive Miss Brickett’s Investigations & Inquiries, is busier than ever and determined to prove herself worthy of an official Inquirer badge. But when her dear friend and fellow detective Bill’s new girlfriend, Darcy, is targeted by a dangerous gang leader and seeks out the Inquirers’ help, Marion cannot help but get involved.
Just when Marion thinks she has the situation under control, Darcy disappears without a trace and the agency receives a package containing a dead raven, tangled in bloodied yellow twine, leaving everyone stumped. Everyone, that is, except for Marion. Because she’s seen this package before—on her mother’s doorstep, a month before her death.
With unforeseen twists peppered throughout, Marion Lane and the Raven’s Revenge follows Marion’s most personal case to date, as she seeks to uncover not only who is behind these ominous packages, but how they are related to her mother’s mysterious death and secretive past.
I really liked the first two books and remember them fairly well, but I am thinking I might need to reread them before tackling this one if I can. I know there are probably lots of little things I don’t remember that might be important to this story. If you want to read my reviews of the first two books just click on the titles below.
