The White Russian by Vanora Bennett


Hosted by: Breaking the Spine

Happy Wednesday everyone, I hope you're having a good one! A day off work for me and I haven't seemed to stop! Here's my Waiting on Wednesday this week...

Evie, a rebellious young American leaves New York in search of art and adventure in jazz-age Paris, where her grandmother lives. But on arrival, her grandmother's sudden death leaves Evie compelled to carry out her dying wish: to find a man from her past called Zhenya. 

The quest leads Evie deep into the heart of the Russian emigre community of Paris. With the world on the brink of war, she becomes embroiled in murder plots, conspiracies and illicit love affairs as White faces Red Russian and nothing is as it seems.

With Jean, a liberal Russian writer by her side. Evie finally seems to have found the passion and excitement she's yearned for. But is she any nearer to discovering the identity of the mysterious Zhenya, or the heartbreak of her grandmother's past?

I'm yet to read Vanora's book Midnight in St Petersburg (which I plan on reading next month!), and I've heard so much much about this up coming book so again this has been added to my to-be-read list! I have an interest in Russian history, not entirely sure why but I do- so any fictional stories tend to catch my eye too!

To me this sounds like a really good read! What are the books you're waiting to read? Tell me in the comments I'd love to know what you want to read! :-)
