Happy Friday, all!
This week, I read:
— Trisha Ashley’s Twelve Days of Christmas, which has become something of a holiday go-to read for me, in part for all the descriptions of holiday cooking. Mmm, mince pies. You can’t go wrong with a stately manor, a brooding owner, dotty side characters, and fictional meals cooked by someone else.
— W.R. Gingell’s Masque, which was part of a care package sent by the best of all possible college roommates. A fantasy novel/mystery set in a vaguely historical kingdom (Regency-ish?), told in first person by a heroine who reminded me greatly of Sally Fitzhugh, with, perhaps, a dash of Amelia Peabody.
— Lisa Shearin’s The Grendel Affair (see care package, above), an urban fantasy novel in which the descendant of the eponymous mythological beast stalks New York City on New Year’s Eve and must be thwarted by a team of crack paranormal agents.
— the copyedited manuscript of The English Wife, which will be coming your way in January 2018!
