I’ve been quiet lately! A terrible case of Blogger’s Block meant I was at a loss for what to post. I know now to be careful with my projects in order to avoid burnout. Thankfully, the winter months are coming—and I tend to be most inspired when it is chilly out!
I have been enjoying the Romance on the Orient Express series. Aren’t the covers lovely? The Orient Express has such a rich history. Agatha Christie’s excellent mystery book made it more famous still. The four authors of this series have switched the theme to something more heartwarming—love.
So far I have read two of the four books and not been disappointed. They’re not very long, but they make me wish there were more pages! Characters are vibrant and funny, the love stories are clean, and both of the books I read have had happy endings.
Song of Salzburg by Jen Geigle Johnson was the most recent I finished. Freya’s adventure in Salzburg attending music school—and falling in love!—was a breath of fresh air. The world-renowned Salzburg Maestro rarely takes students; as a result, little is known about him. When he calls in all of his pupils for in-person lessons except her, Freya begins to wonder if there is something wrong with her. In time she will find out that she knew him all along.
Wrong Train to Paris by Jennifer Moore was great fun! Julia Weston wants to prove to her overprotective father that she is a responsible, grown-up woman, capable of going on trips by herself. She fails at this when she boards the wrong train, missing the Orient. She finds herself somewhere in the country rather than Paris. Doesn’t this sound terrifying? Thank goodness for happy endings—some mistakes become our greatest memories.
I’ve been reading the series out of order but, happily, you don’t need to begin at book one to enjoy the others. You can choose any of them and still become lost in the story. I’ll post proper reviews of each book when I’ve finished them all. For now, I am lost in the Orient Express for the chilly months!
Which of these covers do you think most lovely? I can’t decide—they’re perfect for the breathtaking tales they contain!
