I’ve spent the week running around with my writing sisters, Beatriz Williams and Karen White, in which we met with our publisher to plan our tour for our January book, All the Ways We Said Goodbye (more on that soon!), recorded a video in the Harper Collins video studies, and then snuck away to start plotting our fourth collaboration. So there hasn’t been as much reading time as I would like, except for snippets snatched on subways in between meetings.
I did continue my Heyer-athon, with Bath Tangle, which, I have to confess, didn’t jump out at me the way Black Sheep or Cotillion did on a re-read. Serena seems to me a bit like a Grand Sophy without Sophy’s civic-mindedness. All in all, definitely one that will return to the “less favored Heyer” portion of the shelf.
On a more positive note, I also got to dig into an advance copy of a new World War I book, Jenny Ashcroft’s Meet Me in Bombay, an atmospheric novel of love and war set in 1914 Bombay, France, and England. It’s beautifully written and quite brilliant at creating a sense of time and place. I highly recommend it when it comes out!
