Right before I left on book tour, my wonderful friend, Lynda Loigman, brought me a going away present: Leigh Bardugo’s Ninth House, about an alternate Yale with dark magic.
It was too large to cram in my suitcase (we won’t even discuss the dark magic required to make two weeks’ worth of dresses fit in my suitcase!), so it’s been sitting at home waiting for me– and now tour is over and I finally have time to read it! Toddler permitting, that is.
For the final days of tour, I resorted to old comfort reads: Charlotte MacLeod’s Sarah Kelling and Max Bittersohn books, starting with The Family Vault (dark secrets among Boston’s stodgiest) and finishing up with The Silver Ghost (in which a vintage Rolls is pinched during a Renaissance festival), but I’m a bit mystery-ed out for the moment, and excited to move on to pastures new. Or at least books new.
