Highly Recommended For Your Holiday Reading

A bumper post to make up for one I missed. I intended posting about some of these in November and didn’t!
This TBR Love is part audio with my new podcast—Way I See It. In the first episode featuring eBooks For Travelers, I discuss three books from series I’m currently enjoying. And as it’s a vacation time for most, I’m adding a few more recommendations that I meant to tell you about, too.

Why eBooks For Travelers? Whether on the move or in armchairs, ebooks are lighter by far and—I believe—more eco-friendly!

As usual, I’ll be concentrating primarily on indie-published eBooks. I explain more in this audio clip.

Also Highly Recommended:

Novel
Shrouded (science fiction romance)
Frances Pauli
I confess, I was more intrigued by the cover than by the blurb as alien-themed romances aren’t really my thing. To my pleasant surprise, the story engaged me from Chapter 2. The Shrouded are an interesting culture contrasted against the morally corrupted world. I loved the whole idea of The Shroud and the navigation system. The plot-twists were at times predictable and at others very surprising and satisfying. The romance is well handled and believable. So, if you’re looking for a classic feel romance set on a mysterious, isolated planet with no superhuman powers—just a wise crystal—I highly recommend this read 🙂

Novel
Scratch Deeper (crime thriller)
Chris Simms
This police procedural set mostly in Manchester, England, is fill of surprising twists and candor. The tension is expertly manipulated so it’s maintained to the end. Relationships also grew and changed in interesting ways and most characters are well drawn and engaging. The terrorist plot and attitudes of those in charge of the officers investigating is, sadly, all too believable. Iona Khan makes for a wonderfully tenacious investigator, one you know who—with the aid of her friend, Jim—will continue scratching deeper until they unearth the truth and perpetrators. A highly satisfying read.

Recommended

Novel
Native Bones (crime, small town mystery)
Mark Reps
This murder mystery, set in a small town in Arizona, USA, is the fifth in a series. I haven’t read any others in this series, but found it a satisfying standalone. Though my early guess as to who the killed was proved right, the characters and the quirks of this small county and Reservation proved addictive. The plot is well structured and pieces of superstition, belief, traditions and inter-cultural interactions make for a good weekend read. However, there were times when the repetition of some information proved a little annoying. Nevertheless, crime lovers and small town mystery lovers, as well as the modern Western readers, will want to give this story a look-see.

Novella
Come On, Steal The Noise (Holiday, crime, humor)
Adam Maxwell
One of those quirky, fun reads, this makes for a different holiday read. Set in a country hotel in England over the festive weekend, Zoe needs to retrieve a cassette from a hacker for her employer. Her colourful gran, and her repressed sister are her cover which makes for some hilarious moments. Very, very British in its humour and look at festivities (yes, Slade is mentioned) this story is a great, light-hearted fill-in before and during the holiday period. Particularly, if you’re snowed in, or stuck with family dramas.

Have you read any of these books yet? What did you think?
That’s all for this month. Happy reading!
