New To Me

I discovered three authors last year. I should note that while I have only just discovered them, these authors have been around for a while. But, for me, this discovery is a shiny, new thing, and it makes me so happy. I love to read and now I have three authors to add to my list of favorites. 

First on the list is Oscar de Muriel. I’ve gotten into his Frey & McGray series, a gothic mystery series set in Victorian Edinburgh. The series is creepy, well paced, and a lot of fun. I’m excited to read all the Frey & McGray books.

Next is Alice Feeney. I read His & Hers and was hooked from the first page. The psychological thriller kept me guessing until the very end. I’m now (at the time of writing) reading Rock, Paper, Scissors and loving it. If you like dark and suspenseful stories, you’ll like Feeny’s work. 

Last but not least is David Hewson. I read The Garden of Angels and The Medici Murders. The Garden of Angels is a standalone novel set in Venice during World War II. It’s great for any fan of historical fiction. The Medici Murders is a new amateur sleuth series. The story is set in modern day Venice with a lot of history woven into the plot. I really enjoyed it and I’m excited for the next in the series.

This year, I plan to continue the Frey & McGray series, dive into Daisy Darker, and read more of Hewson’s work, in particular the Nic Costa series. I’m looking forward to reading more from these authors and to seeing who else I’ll “discover” in 2023.
