It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Yay I finished another book! Now if I only knew who recommended it - if it was you, please give yourself a shout-out. I have resolved to remedy my book recommendations/documentations this year.
UPDATE: It was Patricia of Faith, Trust, and Breast Cancer - thank you Patricia!

Maybe you have noticed that my taste in books is all over the place. Above The Bay Of Angels is one of many books by British author Rhys Bowen, and I found this book to be delightful! It was engaging and satisfying and well written. The plot revolves around a female servant who becomes a cook in the kitchen of Queen Victoria. Although it is fiction, some aspects were based on fact. With our lovely heroine there is a bit of intrigue, some romance, a behind the scenes look at a royal kitchen, and  murder!

Within minutes of finishing Above The Bay Of Angels, I looked on Kindle Unlimited for more books by Rhys Bowen and downloaded The Tuscan Child. I'll start on it this afternoon with a glass of wine!

I am linking along with other bloggers to Kathryn's It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


  1. I have a book by that author on my kindle but haven't read it yet. Right now I am re-reading the Rizzoli and Isles series by Tess Gerritsen

  2. Both books look interesting. I don't have a kindle but I do have the app on my iPad. Amazon makes it way to easy, don't they?

  3. Hmm? I have a few books by Rhys Bowen on my Kindle. I should give them a try. Unfortunately, I don't have Above the Bay of Angels. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  4. I don't think I've read any books by Rhys Bowen, but her name keeps coming up in recommendations! This one sounds good - I'll have to look for it!

  5. I took your recommendation and 'bought' the Kindle book! thanks!

  6. Above the Bay of Angels does sound good, I like that kind of setting. I did read The Tuscan Child I do believe and liked it. I listen to the Royal Spyness series by her too and they are fun.

  7. I was so happy to see you enjoyed Above the Bay of Angels! I read and blogged about it and loved it as well! Rhys Bowen is definitely an author on my radar!
    I enjoy the benefits of Kindle Unlimited and just downloaded The Tuscan Child. Thank you for sharing!

  8. I just added this author to my Goodreads selections. Those books sound interesting.
