I had such a great time at HarperCollins Canada Summer Book Preview for 2022. I wanted to share the books that jumped out at me that I will be reading this year. The BEST part, I had NO idea one of my favourite authors was releasing a book this year! Check out my list to find out my most anticipated read.
1. An Honest Lie by Tarryn Fisher Pub Date: April 26th
I'm actually not as familiar with Fisher's works but I'm really looking forward to reading this one next month. At first the premise of a Vegas trip didn't pull me in until I finished the full synopsis.
2. The Dressmaker's Secret by Lorna Cook Pub Date: May 3rd
Coco Chanel's assistant has a dangerous secret: she's working with the resistance while living side by side with German officers at the Ritz. I love when historical fiction book is mixed with fashion.
3. The Messy Lives of Book People by Phaedra Patrick Pub Date: May 31st
I always love reading books about books so I won't be missing this one. The house cleaner of a famous author is tasked with finishing her final book.
4. The Polish Girl by Malka Adler Pub Date: June 7th
Winter 1939: Danusha and her family are forced to flee their home when the Nazis invade Poland. Danusha’s mother, Anna, changes her name and secures a position as a housekeeper in a German doctor’s mansion in Kraków where Gestapo meetings are hosted in the kitchen.
5. In the Dark We Forget by Sandra Sg Wong Pub Date: June 21st
Loved hearing Sandra tell us how she came up with the concept of this book. As well, hearing she is a Canadian up and coming crime writer - had to add this one to my list!
6. The German Wife by Kelly Rimmer Pub Date: June 28th
The ONE I'm most excited for in 2022. I had zero clue Rimmer was releasing a new book this year. I loved that joined to chat about this book and I can't wait to read this.
7. The Librarian Spy by Madeline Martin Pub Date: July 26th
Ava thought her job as a librarian at the Library of Congress would mean a quiet, routine existence. But an unexpected offer from the US military has brought her to Lisbon with a new mission: posing as a librarian while working undercover as a spy gathering intelligence.
