What are you currently reading?

Beneath A Silent Moon by Tracy Grant, which is the second or first? in the Malcom/Suzanne Rannoch series, Regency Mystery.  I LOVED LOVED LOVED Secrets of a Lady, the first one published. I’m confused about why the first book became the 11th or 7th book, depending on whether you’re at Good Reads or Amazon, but if you go by the writing timeline, Secrets of a Lady was written first and Beneath A Silent Moon takes place two years earlier. I’m looking forward to the lush detail, the immersion into the Regency era again, the two main characters and all their secrets, and the twisty-twisty plot. Why the change in the characters’ names? I guess I’ll find out.

I’ve stalled on the Devil’s Grin, not sure why.

What did you recently finish reading?

Secrets of a Lady, from above. Blew me away, like Julian Kestral and Seb St. Cyr.  I confess I was almost afraid to start it, because I didn’t want to be disappointed, and I wasn’t! 🙂

Also, my comfort read, Captain Lacey and A Murder in Grosvenor  Square.  The writing just isn’t as sophisticated and lush as the Regencies above, but I still like them for the well-plotted murder investigation when Marianne isn’t being a pain. I really like Donata and her cool.

What do you think you’ll read next?

From Net Galley, a nonfiction book about the Amazon.  I read a bunch of books related to some research for a novel about the history of South America and the Amazon–gruesome and gorgeous reading, so when I saw this, I picked it up to continue my queries, as the novel hit a snag and sits in a drawer at this moment. My research made me curious for more.

I’m really hoping it’s more like Wade Davis and less like Lynn V. Andrews…

Reviews for these two are coming up soon!

      HIstorical romance is not usually my top choice, but this one really grabbed me.
