Back again with my current read. Still way far behind on reviews – but something to keep the blog up-to-date.
This week I’m reading The Moonlit Garden by Corina Bomann, one of the Kindle First January Selections releasing 2/1/16. I’m about 2/3rds of the way through and I’m really enjoying it. I’d describe it as a pretty mystery. Not dark like my normal reads, but still intriguing as the mystery of this violin is traced back from its current owner. And my teaser today I thought was good advice for everyone!
“The important thing is that, whatever rubbish the world throws at you, you don’t lose heart, and you make sure you always find a way to rid yourself of the bad stuff.”

Lilly Kaiser had come to terms with her solitary, uncomplicated life after becoming a young widow. So when a stranger delivers an old violin to her Berlin antiques shop and tells Lilly it belongs to her, she’s completely bewildered. Why should she be the one to inherit such an exquisite instrument?
Together with her best friend, Ellen, and handsome musicologist Gabriel Thornton, Lilly sets out to explore the violin’s legacy. From England to Italy to Indonesia, she follows its winding trail. Along the way, she learns of Rose Gallway, a beautiful woman of English and Sumatran descent who lived among Sumatra’s lush gardens more than a hundred years earlier. A celebrated and sought-after musician, Rose once owned Lilly’s violin and regularly played concerts for Sumatra’s colonial elite—until, one day, she simply disappeared.
As Lilly unravels the mystery behind Rose’s story—and uncovers other unexpected secrets—she’ll come to see her own life in an entirely new light. And as each shared discovery brings her closer to Gabriel, her heart might finally break its long-held silence.
