Watched Wednesday S1E1

Watched Wednesday’s Child Is Full of Woe from netflix.com

Smart, sarcastic and a little dead inside, Wednesday Addams investigates a murder spree while making new friends — and foes — at Nevermore Academy.

🤷‍♀️ Didn’t hate it, didn’t particularly like it. Willing to watch another episode. A little too YA. So far I prefer Christina Ricci’s Wednesday.

Read The Missing Page

Read The Missing Page (Page & Sommers, #2)

England, 1948: Semi-retired spy Leo Page and country doctor James Sommers team up to solve a decades-old mystery.

When James learns that an uncle he hasn’t heard from in ages has left him something in his will, he figures that the least he can do is head down to Cornwall for a weekend to honor the old man’s parting wishes. He finds the family home filled with half-remembered guests and unwanted memories, but more troubling is that his uncle has tasked his heirs with uncovering the truth behind a woman’s disappearance twenty years earlier.

Leo doesn’t like any of it. He’s just returned from one of his less pleasant missions and maybe he’s slightly paranoid about James’s safety, but he’s of the opinion that rich people aren’t to be trusted where wills are concerned. So he does what any sensible spy would do and infiltrates the house party.

Together they unravel a mystery that exposes long-standing family secrets and threatens to involve James more than either of them would like.

Such a delight! Self-aware cozy mystery, with the added bonus of a romance. I eagerly awaited this after the first book and found it a worthy successor.

This left off in a good spot, so I’m fine if there are no more sequels, but I wouldn’t mind reading more of their adventures together!

Read Subtle Blood

Read Subtle Blood (The Will Darling Adventures, #3) by KJ Charles

Will Darling is all right. His business is doing well, and so is his illicit relationship with Kim Secretan–disgraced aristocrat, ex-spy, amateur book-dealer. It’s starting to feel like he’s got his life under control.

And then a brutal murder in a gentleman’s club plunges them back into the shadow world of crime, deception, and the power of privilege. Worse, it brings them up against Kim’s noble, hostile family, and his upper-class life where Will can never belong.

With old and new enemies against them, and secrets on every side, Will and Kim have to fight for each other harder than ever—or be torn apart for good.

A great conclusion to the series. Read it in one go. A big emotional awakening from Will that I didn’t see coming but that worked really well, and he did a good job grappling with it.
