If you’re a fan of Agatha Christie, you probably know that in 1926 Mrs. Christie went missing for 11 days. When she surfaced, she claimed to have no memory of what happened during that time and to this day it remains a mystery.

That is until Marie Benedict hypothesized perhaps the most logical reason for Mrs. Christie’s disappearance in her latest novel The Mystery of Mrs. Christie.

While I was skeptical that Benedict could offer a plausible story for Mrs. Christie’s disappearance after all these years, I’m happy to tell you that she does! And she keeps the reader’s attention through the entire story.

Told from Agatha’s and her husband’s (Archie) perspective, the novel explores the time leading up to the disappearance, the missing days, and the reunion.

I love reading books that explore the lives of authors and this was no different. I especially loved learning more about Agatha Christie’s beginnings and it made me want to read more of her works.

If you’ve read your fair share of WWII novels, you may think there isn’t anything new in the genre, but have you read any stories about the WASP? That is, the Women Airforce Service Pilots.

You may have heard about the Air Transport Auxiliary in England or the Night Witches from Russia, but the WASP were American women pilots employed during the war.

While they never saw combat, they paved the way for women in the Airforce and female pilots everywhere. I’m lucky enough to live near the National WASP museum and have visited and studied these courageous women.

Their story is fascinating and in Noelle Salazar’s debut, The Flight Girls, we get a picture of all they endured and accomplished. The novel follows one fictional WASP, Audrey Coltrane, as she experiences Pearl Harbor, signs up for service, and flies (literally) through the years of the war.
