I was on vacation much of August, and expected to get a whole bunch of reading done... Nope.
But here's what I read. They're all mysteries, my go-to genre for satisfying reading.
They Found Him Dead by Georgette Heyer. This was a re-read, but it was so long since I read it the first time that I had forgotten whodunit. It's one of my favorites of her mysteries -- a good puzzle and a lovely romance as well. (I much prefer mysteries with some romance in them.)
Scandal Takes a Holiday by Lindsey Davis. Whenever I'm stumped for something to read, I go for the next in the Marcus Didius Falco mysteries. The characters are like old friends, and I can count an interesting visit in Ancient Rome or the far-flung Roman Empire each time. Hopefully I'll catch up soon -- the series has ended and Ms. Davis is several books into a new one about Falco's daughter.
As Death Draws Near by Anna Lee Huber. Apart from the depressing title (which I may find depressing because I'm no longer young and immortal), I enjoyed this book -- a solid mystery with lots of historical info about Ireland. I like to deepen my knowledge and understanding of Ireland and its troubles -- so much so that I even did some research to touch on it when I wrote The Rake's Irish Lady.
That's it for now,
