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…

Weekly Reading Round-Up

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…

Weekly Reading Round-Up

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…

Weekly Reading Round-Up

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…

Weekly Reading Round-Up

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…

Weekly Reading Round-Up

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…

Weekly Reading Round-Up

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…
