Weekly Reading Round-Up

Weekly Reading Round-Up

Happy Friday, all!  With rain and mist and that creeping October chill, it’s been time to break out the sweaters and the whodunnits.  After all, there’s nothing like a cup of tea and a murder– or perhaps the odd ghost– to make a rainy autumn day complete. I started out in the surprisingly dangerous English…

Happy Friday!  This week I read something old, something new, something borrowed– but nothing blue. Did anyone else read the Charlotte MacLeod Sarah Kelling mysteries back in the day?  I read them all in grad school, which was longer ago than I like to acknowledge, so I was happily surprised to rediscover what great fun…

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…

This week, I desperately wanted to go live in Georgette Heyer’s Regency world for a bit, but didn’t feel like revisiting any of my old favorites, some of which I can practically recite line for line.  So, instead, I’ve been reading through my collection of Heyers I Don’t Read As Often and finding it wildly…

Happy Friday! This week, I plunged into the pile of ARCs that’s been waiting for me.  For anyone who’s been having Bridgerton withdrawal, I strongly recommend placing Martha Waters’s To Have and to Hoax on your pre-order list.  It’s a rambunctious, tongue-in-cheek, all-the-banter Regency romp, featuring a husband and wife at odds and best friends…

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…

It’s been a rather crazy week– and a strangely long one– so I’m having the hardest time thinking back to what I might have read! I went seasonally inappropriate with Susan Wittig Albert’s Christmas-set mystery, The Mistletoe Man, Book 9 in her China Bayles series about an attorney who leaves her Houston practice to open…

Happy Friday!  I’ve been squinting my way through some terrible handwriting from one of the members of the Smith College Relief Unit (I suppose writing on a transatlantic liner while worrying about torpedoes is some excuse for sloppy penmanship?), but when I can sneak away from the sources for my next book, I’ve been resting…

Happy Friday, all!  In between wallowing in the correspondence of the members of the Smith College Relief Unit (oh my goodness, those letters!), I’ve been blazing through some new books– mostly thrillers, which I suppose isn’t that surprising, since that seems to be such a large part of what’s on the shelves right now. First,…

As New York swelters in the late summer heat, I’ve gone back to my Barbara Michaels shelf— because no one writes sweltering summers like Barbara Michaels. I started with a re-read of Witch, in which a middle-aged divorcee with grown children buys a cottage in the Virginia woods and discovers evil lurks in the bucolic…
