Hercule Poirot is travelling by luxury passenger coach from London to the exclusive Kingfisher Hill estate, where Richard Devonport has summoned him to prove that his fiancée, Helen, is innocent of the murder of his brother, Frank. But there is a strange condition attached to this request: Poirot must conceal his true reason for being there. The coach is forced to stop when a distressed woman demands to get off, insisting that if she stays in her seat, she will be murdered. Although the rest of the journey passes without anyone being harmed, Poirot’s curiosity is aroused, and his fears are later confirmed when a body is discovered with a macabre note attached… Could this new murder and the peculiar incident on the coach be clues to solving the mystery of who killed Frank Devonport? And if Helen is innocent, can Poirot find the true culprit in time to save her from the gallows?
Today I list some adult books that i think would make great transitional books from YA to adult fantasy!
So, while at the beginning of the year I did mention I was limiting my spend on books. Only buying books that fufill challenges like sequels etc. well while I have definitely scaled back I haven’t compeltely managed to keep to my restriction.
Back for another annual post. Every year, around this time, I look at my physical tbr and think to myself which out of these books are the scariest to read. Which books are making me the most apprehensive?
Twelve tales, twelve dangerous tales of mystery, magic, and rebellious hearts. Each twists like a spindle to reveal truths full of warning and triumph, truths that capture hearts long kept tame and set them free, truths that explore life… and death. A prince has a surprising awakening. A beauty fights like a beast. A boy refuses to become prey. A path to happiness is lost… then found again.
Just a quick tag for this week!
