Every now and then, books pop up at just the right time. Just as I was wondering what I was going to read on my plane ride to Phoenix, an advance copy of Tracy Grant’s Imperial Scandal landed on my doorstep.
For those of you who haven’t read the previous book in the series, go back and read Vienna Waltz. Tracy does an amazing job weaving her fictional characters into the real personalities and dramas of a particularly dramatic era. (I especially love Talleyrand’s cameos in Vienna Waltz.)
Switching genres, I re-read The Westing Game, a young adult mystery which I remembered very fondly from long ago– and I finally found my copy of Susan Elizabeth Philips’ Heaven, Texas which is coming along with me for today’s plane ride.
