Where has this book been all my life?
Short answer: on my bookshelf. A friend gave it to me years ago, but it languished with the other “I’ll get to this someday” books. So I’m so grateful to Carly for reminding me of it and making me finally go read it. It’s… How to describe? It’s very Pink Carnation-y, in that there’s a modern heroine solving a mystery involving a lost set of papers and a dashing marauder during the American Revolution. We get the historical story told in the first person by the actors themselves, with wonderful deadpan humor and a couple of interwoven romances. Highly, highly recommended.
And now I’m in that book mourning period that you enter into when you’ve just finished something very, very good and aren’t quite sure what to read next.
Fortunately, I saw Jennifer Robson the other day, and she was kind enough to give me an ARC of Goodnight from London, her upcoming World War II novel. So I don’t think my book slump will last long!
