Inhaltsangabe zu „These Shallow Graves“ von Jennifer Donnelly

A wealthy family. A rotten secret. A young woman with more to lose than she knows. Josephine Montfort is from one of New York's oldest, most respected, and wealthiest families. Like most well-off girls of the Gilded Age, her future looks set - after a finishing school education, she will be favourably married off to a handsome gentleman, after which she'll want for nothing. But Jo has other dreams and desires that make her long for a very different kind of future. She wants a more meaningful and exciting life: she wants to be an investigative journalist like her heroine Nellie Bly. But when Jo's father is found dead in his study after an alleged accident, her life becomes far more exciting than even Jo would wish. Unable to accept that her father could have been so careless, she begins to investigate his death with the help of a young reporter, Eddie Gallagher. It quickly becomes clear he was murdered, and in their race against time to discover the culprit and his motive, Jo and Eddie find themselves not only battling dark characters on the violent and gritty streets of New York, but also their growing feelings for each other.

Mirabellensommer

"Mirabellensommer" ist ne nette Lektüre für einen kurzweiligen Nachmittag auf dem Liegestuhl. Unterhaltend, kommt aber nicht an 1. Band ran.

Als der Teufel aus dem Badezimmer kam

Ziemlich experimenteller französischer Roman mit ernsten Ansätzen, aber mir fehlte die klare Linie und Aussage

Was man von hier aus sehen kann

Wunderbar. Gelacht, geweint und in einem Zug gelesen.

Der Vater, der vom Himmel fiel

Ein "Glücksgriff" in Buchform: Witzig, geistreich, einfach.nur.zum.Brüllen.komisch - und so wahr ;) 5 Sterne reichen hier nicht aus ;))

Underground Railroad

Eine tolle Heldin, die trotz aller Widrigkeiten nie aufgibt und immer wieder aufsteht, auch wenn es das Schicksal nicht gut mit ihr meint.

Swing Time

Eine sehr lange, gemächliche Erzählung, der streckenweise der Rote Faden abhanden zu kommen scheint. Interessanter Schmöker.
