Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! I am so grateful for my family, to have a roof over my head, food on the table, and my two best weirdos—my husband and daughter. I am so grateful for Bookstagram too! A place to share the love of books with each other and make amazing friendships. . 🔺 I’m going to leave it at that, because there is so much to be grateful for! . ▫️ Now, “The Dollhouse” by Fiona Davis has been on my TBR shelf for awhile and I’m hoping to get to it soon. I really love historical fiction, it’s always a favorite of mine. (synopsis below) Has anyone read this already? How did you like it? . ▪️ What is one book on your TBR that you’re especially looking forward to? . 🔺 Synopsis: When she arrives at the famed Barbizon Hotel in 1952, secretarial school enrollment in hand, Darby McLaughlin is everything her modeling agency hall mates aren't: plain, self-conscious, homesick, and utterly convinced she doesn't belong—a notion the models do nothing to disabuse. Yet when Darby befriends Esme, a Barbizon maid, she's introduced to an entirely new side of New York City: seedy downtown jazz clubs where the music is as addictive as the heroin that's used there, the startling sounds of bebop, and even the possibility of romance. . ▫️ Over half a century later, the Barbizon's gone condo and most of its long-ago guests are forgotten. But rumors of Darby's involvement in a deadly skirmish with a hotel maid back in 1952 haunt the halls of the building as surely as the melancholy music that floats from the elderly woman's rent-controlled apartment. It's a combination too intoxicating for journalist Rose Lewin, Darby's upstairs neighbor, to resist—not to mention the perfect distraction from her own imploding personal life. Yet as Rose's obsession deepens, the ethics of her investigation become increasingly murky, and neither woman will remain unchanged when the shocking truth is finally revealed.
