Weekly Reading Round-Up

Friday, August 12th, 2011

This has been an exceptionally good reading week. Here are my latest finds:

— Meredith Duran, A Lady’s Lesson in Scandal

I loved this book. As someone who cried over A Little Princess as a small child, I loved this tale of an Edwardian guttersnipe who finds out that she was stolen from her real family. The relationship between the protagonists was beautifully drawn. Definitely my favorite Duran so far.

— Tana French, Faithful Place

The third of Tana French’s Dublin-set mystery novels. I was trying to describe them to a friend, but couldn’t. There’s a literary, almost lyrical quality to them, even as they deal with Criminal Minds-esque murders.

— Julia Spencer-Fleming, In the Bleak Midwinter

Once I was in a murder mystery mood, I decided to go back and re-read the first of Julia Spencer-Fleming’s series about a priest and a police chief in a small New York town.

— Susan Elizabeth Philips, Natural Born Charmer

There may have been tears involved. Such a good book.
