I started this when it first came out. I had just read Beryl Markham’s own autobiography West With The Night. I had enjoyed it and was looking forward to Paula’s novel about her. It turned out to be too much Markham at one time and I stopped after a few chapters. I am now enjoying it very much. The break turned out to be a good idea.

Gideon's Risk (Gideon, #6) by J.J. Marric Gideon's Risk
Gideon's March (Gideon, #8) by J.J. Marric Gideon's March
I also read
Aquaman, Volume 4 Death of a King by Geoff Johns Aquaman Volume 4: Death of a King, part of DC's New 52. I am enjoying this more than I thought I would.
