Weekend Ramblings: BEST FICTION OF 2012

The Secret Keeper

The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton

Kate Morton once again puts together a compelling dual-era, cross-generational mystery that tests a woman’s confidence in her mother and causes her to question her identity.  I loved the mystery of this and how the author kept me guessing with the twists and turns.

Garden of Madness

Garden of Madness by T.L. Higley

This Biblical fiction story of ancient Babylon was a web of conspiracy and intrigue, with a bit of romance thrown in for good measure.  I enjoyed the historical ties and the characters’ growth throughout the story.



Echoes of Titanic

Echoes of Titanic by Mindy Starns Clark

This multi-generational mystery ties in one of my favorite historical topics (The Titanic) with a modern mystery, where the past and present intertwine and keep the reader guessing.



The Emperor's Conspiracy

The Emperor’s Conspiracy by Michelle Diener

Can you tell historical fiction mysteries are some of my favorite novels?  In this one, a woman is torn between the upper and lower crusts of society, pulled between two suitors, and plays a part in uncovering a conspiracy set in motion by Napoleon himself.



The Dressmaker: A Novel

The Dressmaker by Kate Alcott

In this Titanic historical fiction novel, the most intense action takes place after the survivors return to New York and face the  inquiries into what really happened that night.
