A sweeping story of espionage set during the Napoleonic Wars that travels from remote Mediterranean islands to glittering ballrooms in Vienna. Aristocratic playboy Bai Huang and street-smart maidservant to courtesans, Yue-ying, must team up to solve a murder. Combine spies, adventure, historical romance, academic mystery, and a modern-day love story, and you have this series.
Tying the whole series together is an overarching narrative set in the present day, where scholar Eloise slowly pieces together what happened in the past. One of my favorite romances of all time! What a tangled web we weave. Not only is the romance in this book completely swoon-worthy and Leila a total badass, the mystery is perfectly done. Meredith gets mystery romances done right. Rei Shimura is a half-Japanese, half-American twenty-something struggling to make it in the big city of Tokyo. I loved the peek into Japanese culture and life in Tokyo this book provided. The ending is an improbable delight, and the Scotsman in question is just the right combination of infuriating and attractive.
The descendants of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson go to boarding school together. A clever and amusing twist on the classic duo with plenty of Easter eggs for Sherlockians. A wildly popular mystery romance series penned by the wildly successful Nora Roberts. Not my cup of tea, but plenty of other people disagree.
The first in another best-selling series that blends mystery with romance and comedy. The Adrien English series is closer to a traditional mystery series than romance, with a bookseller the eponymous Adrien who occasionally helps out a way-deep-in-the-closet detective. With mysteries and other things.
The books get better as the series goes on! Mystery writer solving crimes alert! Is her mysterious new love interest, Anatoly Darinsky, her number one suspect or her number one savior? This series has a fun, chick-lit vibe. About half of it takes place in a library filled with medieval manuscripts, and the other half is the protagonist WISHING he was in a library. Plus, can you ever go wrong with Grail mysteries? Susanna Kearsley writes old-school romantic suspense, and I mean that in the best way possible. This novel takes place in Paris, with an amateur codebreaker hired to crack an 18th-century journal full of Jacobean intrigue.
I actually could have been on the phone to Ellen, with her offloading her woes while I tried unsuccessfully to stop snorting with laughter. And then what happens to them on their journey to the new place, which is the story of getting from one place to another? And what causes them to finally land somewhere and decide to stay, if not for the rest of their lives, then for an extended period?
A quirky, smirky, entertaining slice of fabulous. Covert ops detective Jan Nyman finds himself investigating a death in a holiday village in Finland and a rather striking lady just happens to be the suspect.

The first paragraph of Palm Beach, Finland is beautifully written, it quite literally slapped my attention and I settled in with something approaching ghoulish glee! A wonderful wave of dark humour rolls through this novel gathering raised eyebrows and snorts. The cast increases, the action builds, and oh how my tummy and mind tied themselves in knots as the story spun in ever decreasing eccentric circles.
I just want to applaud David Hackston as I completely forgot I was reading a translation. I thoroughly, completely and totally recommend Palm Beach, Finland, do grab yourself a copy and pop a do not disturb sign on your door! When snow shuts down Greg Heffley's middle school, his neighbourhood transforms into a wintry battlefield.

With millions of books sold around the world in 65 editions and 56 languages, Wimpy Kid has turned millions of kids into readers. Frustrated by a dead end job, fed up with renting in London and the loathsome daily commute and, to cap it all, failing to make it as a stand-up comedian, Tommy Barnes was at breaking point.
The most hilarious debut you will read this year. Claire and Matt are divorced but decide what's best for their daughter Scarlett is to have a 'normal' family Christmas. They can't agree on whose idea it was, or who said they should bring their new partners. But someone did - and it's too late to pull the plug.

He's a rabbit. Together the five or six? But what happened? They said they'd all be adults about this An absolute belter of a novel, amusing, poignant, and hugely entertaining.

Kate herself is fast heading towards 50 and invisibility, life however refuses to listen and keeps setting devious traps. I don't believe that you have to have passed or be nearing 50, to be a parent or even a woman, to be captivated by this tale of family drama. Allison Pearson writes with a witty, exceedingly realistic pen and I found myself nodding along, both smirking and wincing as I read.
How Hard Can It Be captures life, proper gutsy, difficult, yet wonderful life, and while making you smile, also makes you think, I loved it. A bang up-to-date, bright, hugely entertaining read set in the world of social media. Digital marketing agency owner and ultra competitive Annie and her business may be up for three awards, however they still need their clients to pay on time, otherwise the business may be over before it can really establish itself.
A rather demanding bet, to make a stranger famous on instagram in just 30 days, leads Annie into a Pygmalion dance of discovery. Lindsey Kelk really does have the most delightfully amusing and engaging writing style. I often found myself smirking and at several points actually snorting with laughter. The supporting characters surrounding Annie are wonderful in their own right, and help create an all-embracing world. The romance element forms beautifully, in no particular rush, allowing time to get to know Annie and friends and really care about them. Oh, how I thoroughly enjoyed this feisty, entertaining, full-on read.
Working mum Alexis returns to the office after maternity leave. She now has to prove she can fit motherhood around the male dominated world of being a spy. Alexis stamps her personality all over the prologue, convincingly setting the scene. She tells her own story in a fast, tongue-in-cheek, bright tone, and I immediately warmed to her.
Firmly on side and by her side as she races through her first operation I smirked and chortled as I read. Oh what a joy of read this was, deliciously entertaining and just so easy to just sink into and become a part of. Meeting resistance from some locals, she also finds friends, including the rather lovely Calvin.
