Lady in the Lake Laura by Lippman, Susan Bennett (Narrator)

As I read this book, I was not sure if I would enjoy the style it is written in. Madeleine, Maddie, Schwartz is the main character in this story and it is basically told from her POV. She narrates a chapter of this mystery, then the next chapter is told from the POV of one of the characters we met in the previous chapter. Sometimes we find out what they were thinking, sometimes they share a secret. I wasn’t sure if I liked it or not, actually to be honest, I was a bit confused to begin with. Once I got used to the style, and listened to a few chapters again, I really enjoyed it and thought it brought some realism to the story.

Next Year in Havana by Chanel Cleeton

This was a book that had been highly recommended by several bloggers that I follow. I am very glad I read it as it is a part of history that I was not familiar with. The impact those events had on the humans that lived during this time and the generations that followed is sad and heartbreaking. Told using romance added a touch that I loved.
