Jan | 11645 comments Interactive License Plate Game - Europe!!

Commercial Photography
We are heading to Europe! If you have an upcoming book that takes place in one of the below European countries, go ahead and claim it. Please do not claim something until you are sure you will read the book. You may only claim one book/country at a time. Be sure to pop back in and let me know when you are completed the book you have claimed.

**Please Note: Not every European Country is listed below. The availability of books with settings in the smaller, newer countries is very limited. BUT if you have a book from a European country that is not listed, let me know and I will add it to our list. I have also included the separate countries of the United Kingdom.

Happy Hunting!

COMPLETED!!

I can do England with Death and the Dancing Footman by Ngaio Marsh

And, I have to be annoying, sorry, but the name of the country #5 is Bosnia and Herzegovina, if you use just the first name you should give Herzegovina it's own entry like you did with Great Britain


message 10: by Jan, Moderator (new)

Jan | 11645 comments Great Rosa!

Patrizia | 960 comments I'll claim Scotland but I'll write the book tomorrow because I'm using the app in my tablet now so I can't add the link to the book.

This looks like a great book and the other books she's written seem to be not bad as well. I'm always looking for books set in Poland and good espionage thrillers - thanks!

Amanda A (carolinabookworm) | 245 comments I will take Germany. I am planning to read The Glassblower by Petra Durst-Benning in April.

message 26: by Patrizia, Contributor (new)

Patrizia | 960 comments I finished my Scottish book so I'll claim France because in April I'll read Colette London, Dead and Ganache. The book is set in Brittany, although on the cover there is a field of lavender, which, instead, is typical of Provence ...

You should love it. :)


message 28: by Teri-K (new)

Jan | 11645 comments Thanks for the update Patrizia! I'll mark you down for France!

I like almost all of the books I've read by MacInnes. This one is especially good and very, very accurate according to what I've read about it. (Her husband worked for MI6 and she was accused of getting classified information from him for this one.)

Enjoy it!

The Shadow of Death by Jane Willan 3/30/18****

message 33: by Teri-K (new)

Teri-K | 450 comments Did you see my update at message 28?

It kind of got lost in the talk about "While Still we Live". Sorry.


message 34: by Jan, Moderator (new)

Jan | 11645 comments Thanks for pointing it out Teri!! I did miss it. It looks like we were posting at the same time. Off to get you updated.


message 35: by Teri-K (new)

Teri-K | 450 comments I finished Albania with The Unexpected Mrs. Pollifax by Dorothy Gilman. She's always so fun to read!

I can take Belgium with High As the Heavens by Kate Breslin. A new-to-me author, so I hope I like her.

Jan | 11645 comments Thanks BC!!


message 43: by [deleted user] (new)

I finished #9 England, with Death and the Dancing Footman

now I can take #3, Austria, with Wiener Blei by Leo Lukas

(and I have my plea again, please could you rename #5 into Bosnia and Herzegovina, the full name of the country, because even if Bosnia is the bigger part of the country, H. is still there, and since one of my best friend comes from this part of the country, I don't want it to be missed out XD)


message 44: by Jan, Moderator (new)

Jan | 11645 comments Thanks Rosa! And I will update the country name :)
