If you love Gosford Park, try The Luminaries by Eleanor Catton. From upstairs/downstairs intrigue to the wild frontier of gold-rush New Zealand, The Luminaries is a Victorian-era murder mystery and Booker Prize winner that shares Gosford Park’s literary merit and exploration of class and character. It’s a page-turning, utterly compelling package.
Eleanor Catton, you are hurting my wrist! Such a big book, such a lot going on, too much to say about it in this short space. So check out my Book Chat Video to see what I thought.

This is JK Rowling's new book written under a fake name...The Cuckoo's Calling by Robert Galbraith #detectivefiction #crimefiction #brilliant
Rebecca Smith, SEO editorThe Book: The Cuckoo's Calling, by Robert Galbraith "As much as I love the Harry Potter series, I was hesitant to jump into J.K. Rowling's latest book (especially since I didn't love The Casual Vacancy). But, I shouldn't have been worried. Rowling proves that her ability to weave little details, and hold out the most important facts until the end, was not limited to Hogwarts with this murder mystery set in modern day, not-so-magical London. I am used to predicting exactly how books will end, but I was continually surprised all the way to the last page. Rowling does an expert job showing the complicated truths around relationships we have with family, friends, the media, and ourselves through the aftermath of Lulu Landy's death." The Cuckoo's Calling, $9.62, available at Amazon.
A gripping, elegant mystery steeped in the atmosphere of London. In my reading list!

Possibly my favourite book this year so far. Very playful and clever, continually circling back on itself. Thought provoking.
