I’m afraid I don’t have a proper round-up this week (blah, blah, Pink IX, blah, blah), but I do have a new favorite author I’ve just discovered. And by discovered, I mean my ever-brilliant college roommate Claudia put the books in a box and mailed them to me, with a large note saying, “Read these!”
Have I mentioned that Claudia is always right?
The books are Point of Honour and Petty Treason by Madeleine E. Robins. The author describes them as “hardboiled Regencies”. They remind me a great deal of my beloved Kate Ross Regency mysteries, both in content and style, with the difference that in the Robins books, our sleuth is a lady, albeit a fallen one. Highly recommended!
