bookshelves: womens-fiction, delightfullytrashy
Read in April, 2009

I found this on the giveaway shelf at a Barcelona hotel, picked it up because I was running out of other reading material, and thoroughly enjoyed it. It's the story of a female Boston tavernkeeper who saves the life of an English lord shortly before the Revolution; he marries her and takes her back to Blighty, where Drama Ensues, particularly involving his first wife. Well-written, with good romances and wit, and full of interesting period detail; I've put it under "delightfullytrashy" on my shelves, but it's actually not trashy at all. Rather it's like the old Mary Stewart or Victoria Holt historical fiction -- exactly the kind of pleasurable, respectable, not-too-much-hard-work quality novel you (or at least I) want to read on vacation.
