My sense of January was that it was a very good month of reading. I'd happily read other books by all of the authors listed below. My pick of the month is Aly Monroe's Icelight (in a close run race with Diggers Rest Hotel). I usually don't start in the middle of a series, but I'm glad I did in this case and I've every intention of catching up with the first two books. It was definitely a January kind of book, set in London in the winter of 1947.
