One good thing about many hours on airplanes: it provides much time to read. Here were my companions on this week’s flights:
— Meredith Duran, At Your Pleasure.
Ah, the Hanoverian succession. Always such good fodder for fiction.
— John Harwood, The Ghost Writer.
I don’t know whether to thank or blame Pam for recommending this to me. It’s a brilliantly creepy, entirely eerie, literary ghost story. Note: do not read while entirely alone, late at night. It reminded me very much of Setterfield’s The Thirteenth Tale.
— Donna Thorland, The Turncoat.
The reason there’s no link for this book is because it’s not out yet– which is a huge shame, because otherwise I would tell you to run and read it. Anyone remember that old Disney show, The Swamp Fox? Well, imagine if the Swamp Fox were a woman, charming secrets out of the British in Philadelphia by day and smuggling them to the rebel forces by night. The resourceful heroine and the dilemmas she faced reminded me, for some reason, a great deal of Claire Fraser in Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander. I’ll post more about this book once it actually has a cover– and a release date.
— Susan Elizabeth Phillips, Call Me Irresistible.
I’ve been saving and saving this book, since new SEPs only come out every so often. This one features the offspring of characters from much earlier books, so you might want to read First Lady, Glitter Baby, Fancy Pants, and Lady Be Good first.
