Velvet Was the Night by Silvia Moreno-Garcia
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This was the first book I’ve read that was considered a noir. I didn’t really know what to expect, but it did not disappoint. It read like a gritty crime movie. You don’t really like any of the characters, but you still want to know what is going to happen to them. I also liked the historical fiction aspect of the book. I love books that are set against real events, especially when they are new to me.

This was my first book by Moreno-Garcia and I’m definitely interested in reading more books by her. Definitely would recommend this book. It is set to be released August 17. Thank you @netgalley and @randomhouse for the ARC in exchange for an honest review.

  1. Description from NetGalley: 1970s, Mexico City. Maite is a secretary who lives for one thing: the latest issue of Secret Romance. While student protests and political unrest consume the city, Maite escapes into stories of passion and danger.

    Her next-door neighbor, Leonora, a beautiful art student, seems to live a life of intrigue and romance that Maite envies. When Leonora disappears under suspicious circumstances, Maite finds herself searching for the missing woman—and journeying deeper into Leonora’s secret life of student radicals and dissidents.

    Meanwhile, someone else is also looking for Leonora at the behest of his boss, a shadowy figure who commands goon squads dedicated to squashing political activists. Elvis is an eccentric criminal who longs to escape his own life: He loathes violence and loves old movies and rock ’n’ roll. But as Elvis searches for the missing woman, he comes to observe Maite from a distance—and grows more and more obsessed with this woman who shares his love of music and the unspoken loneliness of his heart.
