Best Book (trails) of November


Something jazzy set in New Orleans?     

Sunset Swing set in LA by Ray Celestin

The BookTrail’s bookreview of Sunset Swing

I love this series.  So vividly drawn and pure joy to read. Very immersive and I love the way real crimes and real people are merged into a fictional tale. Louis Armstrong features here and I for one just LOVE the jazz elements of this series. It needs to be on television or even the big screen as I can already hear the soundtrack.

A historical novel set on a Berkshire farm?


The Return Anita Frank

Booktrail The Return by Anita Frank

The first book was good (The Lost Ones) and this second proves this author’s metal. Brilliant evocative writing, a good insight into farming life in England, the true meaning of love and so much more. You learn so much in this book and get to experience a new way of life.

A story to take you from Bronte Country to London?

Red Monarch Bella Ellis

Booktrail The Red Monarch by Bella Ellis

This series just gets better and better. Set in Haworth as usual but here we head to London. There, the Bronte sisters are up to solving a mystery concerning the lover of their drunkard of  a brother. I got a new insight into the Bronte sisters in this book and whilst I prefer them being in Yorkshire, they did of course travel a lot to London and the publishing heartland of the capital. Very immersive!

A murder novel set on the Dublin railway?

The Dublin Railway Murder Thomas Morris

Booktrail The Dublin Railway Murder

I do love a novel set on a train and when it’s a true story set in the golden age of fiction then even better! That cover grabbed me at first and I found this a great way to imagine yourself sinking into a soft train seat, seeing the scenery of Ireland fly by whilst tucking into a great story and thinking wow, this actually happened!


Happy reading in November!
