This post will cover a three-day stay in Ischia, a volcanic Island in the Tyrrhenian Sea. Last time we were on the ferry from Pozzuoli to Ischia, a sunny a windy day. We arrived late morning in Pozzuoli, almost missing the ferry but like everything in Italy the leaving departure was postponed. It took one hour and a half to cross the sea.
There were only 10 cm between my bed and the wall and I had to be careful to get up from the bed or I would have knocked my head against the wall. More so, no bedside lamp on my side because how can you put a lamp in a 10 cm space? We complained and they changed room for us, it was a little bit bigger but not much (at least no more head against the wall!!).
This is what I bought in September, not much because I couldn’t look at Kobo website a lot since I was busy, but I did buy a little bit:
Lycke by Mikaela Bley.
New author for me and new series. This is the first book in the Emma Tamm’s Series.
‘Death, death, death,’ she whispered to herself. But it was already too late. The panic was growing inside her.
On a cold and stormy Friday in May, a young girl disappears without a trace from outside Stockholm’s Royal Tennis Hall.
The missing girl is Lycke, and assigned to report on her story is TV4’s hot-headed crime reporter Ellen Tamm. As the police begin their search, Ellen starts her own investigation, delving into Lycke’s life: her family, the nanny, the kids who taunted her at school.
As Ellen is drawn deeper into a tangle of secrets, lies, and betrayals — and frustrated by the odd behavior of Lycke’s family, as well as corrupt police, her upstart new boss, and the disturbing threats being made against her — she becomes more and more possessed by the task she has been given, tortured by the echoes of her own past, of the darkness that haunts her. Will she find Lycke before it is too late for either of them?
