Read in March, 2008

I love historical fiction. I'm always looking for new authors. I found Sharan in The Oregonian book review announcing her new book "Shanghai Tunnel". While waiting for a copy "on-hold" I've read several of her earlier books from the Catherine LeVendeur series.

Her books are well researched and offer a wealth of information about medieval time. Did you know in France washing hands before eating was common and there were private rooms in public bath houses?

The mysteries become formulaic, but the substance is always interesting and the characters are well rounded and whole. The books are hard to put down, good reads.

I'm looking forward to learning more about Portland's history from Shanghai Tunnel.
