Evil descends in one night.
As Berlin burns, Karl's family waits in New Church for the Nazis to come. The Wallich family hides in a nearby apartment. Lucy Strasburg, girlfriend of a Nazi officer, watches with horror, realizing what the "glory of the Reich" really means...and wondering what, if anything, she can do.
After this tragic plot I reached for "Emerald O'Brien makes a killer cup of tea", the first in the series of "Ghost of a chance".
I enjoy this rather light-hearted mystery witch novel by Yasemine Galenorn.
Emerald O'Brien is the owner of the Chintz 'n China Tea Room where guests are served the perfect blend of tea and tarot reading. She never set out to be a detective, but once word gets out that she can communicate with the dead, there's no turning back...
I have a tall stack of more reading choices on my nightstand. I would love to hear what others have on their lists and a short personal review.

Tired eyes and my reading list for July
Allergies really kick butt this summer, my eyes itch and my lids feel heavy like bricks.
Nevertheless, I am crocheting, knitting and reading, and as much as I enjoy the natural light of the summer months, my eyes will probably be thankful for clear fall air.
I just finished "Passage to Danzig", a heavy meal to digest before bedtime.
