Short and Sweet Book Reviews #309 - Ask Me No Questions by Shelley Noble, Record of a Spaceborn Few by Becky Chambers

Ask Me No Questions (A Lady Dunbridge Mystery #1)Ask Me No Questions by Shelley Noble
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Lady Dunbridge is escaping from the role expected of her in England. Her escape is to New York in America. Her arrival is not what she expected. Seems the husband of her host has just been shot and it looks like his wife may be to blame. This has some interesting characters, some great historical data and a mystery with a lot of red herrings. A nice start to a new series and as a bonus there is a mystery character in the background.

I received a free copy of the book in return for an honest review.

Record of a Spaceborn Few (Wayfarers, #3)Record of a Spaceborn Few by Becky Chambers
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This third book in the Wayfarers trilogy is about people. Like the previous two books it takes place in an entirely new world, the world of the Exodus Fleet. Following several different characters, one an alien, we see the ships and the people. There are questions as events impact different characters. Each must answer the question; Why are we here? Should we go or stay? I loved the book and the ending even though it left me in tears. Great job showing how we can work together as the world we live in changes.

Rachel Dulude does a great job fitting her voice to the people and emotions.
