Happy Friday, all!
I need to get back to the Team W chapter I’m working on, but wanted to pop in for just a moment to talk about this week’s books!
I started the week with Susan Elizabeth Phillips’s Dance Away With Me, in which a grieving widow moves to a remote rural cabin– but finds it isn’t quite so isolated as she expects when she gets entangled in the lives of the pregnant supermodel and alarmingly handsome internationally famous street artist living in a nearby renovated schoolhouse.
After that, it was back to the Middle Ages with Ellis Peters’s third Brother Cadfael mystery, Monk’s Hood. I love how wonderfully sensible the characters in Cadfael tend to be. No melodrama, just honest people caught in awful situations, trying to make their way through as best they can while Brother Cadfael untangles the mystery.
Right now, I’m treating myself to a book I’ve been looking forward to for a very long time: Alexis Hall’s new madcap romance, Rosaline Palmer Takes the Cake, about a single mother who stakes her hopes on a BBC baking competition. I’ve only just started it, so more on that next week!
What have you been reading this week?
