Best of 2017 #Giveaway Hop

by Aleen @ Lampshade Reader

Welcome to the Best of 2017 Giveaway Hop hosted by Bookhounds.net!

On this hop bloggers will be listing some of their favorite reads from the previous year. I can tell you that I have at least 10 of them; you can check out a post of that here. There were some audiobooks in that list as well, which I really started to appreciate.

the secret life of anna blancI won’t list all of them on this post, but I can tell you that one of them is a book called The Secret Life of Anna Blanc by Jennifer Kincheloe. The heroine was a hoot and the setting is early 1900s LA.  It’s a Mystery/Detective story.

 

Blurb:

It’s 1907 Los Angeles. Mischievous socialite Anna Blanc is the kind of young woman who devours purloined crime novels—but must disguise them behind covers of more domestically-appropriate reading. She could match wits with Sherlock Holmes, but in her world women are not allowed to hunt criminals.

Determined to break free of the era’s rigid social roles, Anna buys off the chaperone assigned by her domineering father and, using an alias, takes a job as a police matron with the Los Angeles Police Department. There she discovers a string of brothel murders, which the cops are unwilling to investigate. Seizing her one chance to solve a crime, she takes on the investigation herself.

If the police find out, she’ll get fired; if her father finds out, he’ll disown her; and if her fiancé finds out, he’ll cancel the wedding and stop pouring money into her father’s collapsing bank. Midway into her investigation, the police chief’s son, Joe Singer, learns her true identity. And shortly thereafter she learns about blackmail.

Anna must choose—either hunt the villain and risk losing her father, fiancé, and wealth, or abandon her dream and leave the killer on the loose.

I know that not all people enjoy the mystery/detective genre, so instead of giving away this book, I’ll be awarding one winner  a book of choice, valued up to $10 from Book Depository. Enter the rafflecopter below.
