Between Pink XI and baby, I’ve been a little slow on the reading front this week. (Sally Fitzhugh’s pet stoat was giving me some trouble.) Here’s what I’ve been reading in between diapering and stoat-wrangling:
— Jane O’Connor, Almost True Confessions: Closet Sleuth Spills All.
A very fun murder mystery set around editorial circles and Upper East Siders in Manhattan, as our copyeditor heroine stumbles across a dead body– and then a few more.
— Georgette Heyer, The Talisman Ring.
Why have I waited so long to re-read this one? Heyer’s comic touch is, as always, impeccable, especially when it comes to the interactions between the hero and his (prospective) betrothed, Eustacie. Eustacie is a romantic. The hero is… not. (Don’t worry; there’s a much more sensible heroine in there for him.)
