Between The Lure of the Moonflower launch and toddler being toddler-ish, I haven’t been able to snatch much reading time this week.
I’ve been craving my traditional comfort read: Gothic. (Whenever I’m tired, I revert to old school Gothics with houses on the covers. They’re my happy place.) Fortunately, my wonderful friend Vicki keeps me well-supplied with care packages of crumbling 70s-era paperbacks, so I was able to steal a few moments with Catherine Gaskin’s The Property of a Gentleman, which I am loving so far. Mysterious tumbledown house crammed with treasures; heroine who’s a junior employee at an auction house; sixteenth century historical secrets…. Yes, please!
Speaking of Gothics, did anyone else know that Gothic novelist Isabelle Holland (I went on a big Isabelle Holland kick around the time I was writing The Passion of the Purple Plumeria) was Harper Lee’s publicist for To Kill a Mockingbird? The world, it is small.
