Happy Friday! This week, I’ve been wallowing in Golden Age British crime with a couple of Georgette Heyer mystery reprints.
I will confess, I’m not usually the hugest fan of her mysteries, since I find them less finely drawn than her historicals and the people somehow more unpleasant, but I’m finding Death in the Stocks and They Found Him Dead quite fun.
In the meantime, I’ve just stuck a giant and very heavy pile of ARCs in my carry-on as I head to the airport to fly to North Carolina for the Bookmarks Festival of Books and Authors! If you’re in Winston-Salem or thereabouts, I’ll be talking historical fiction tomorrow (Saturday) at a free tea with the authors with Martha Hall Kelly, Ann Mah, and Sarah Blake.
What have you been reading this week?
