Just a little over a month until The Passion of the Purple Plumeria arrives in stores!
But what to read while waiting? Here are some ideas:
— Elizabeth Peters’ Amelia Peabody books (historical mystery), which also feature a sharp-tongued, parasol wielding heroine (start with Crocodile on the Sandbank);
— ditto Gail Carriger’s Parasol Protectorate (historical paranormal/steampunk), starting with Soulless;
— Bee Ridgway’s Regency and modern historical/time travel/mystery/romance blend, The River of No Return, which features a vast conspiracy, an enviable hero, and a heroine of whom Miss Gwen would very much approve;
— along similar lines, C.S. Harris’s Regency-set St. Cyr mysteries, starting with What Angels Fear;
What would you recommend as a stop-gap for Miss Gwen’s book?
(To help bridge the gap, I’ll be posting a new excerpt from The Passion of the Purple Plumeria here on the News page tomorrow!)
(Apologies– there’s a revised plan. My schedule got a little jumbled, so I’ll be posting an excerpt from Purple Plumeria next Tuesday, 7/9, instead. Stay tuned!)
