**I ONLY RATE BOOKS I REALLY ENJOYED**.

Before I began writing I spent time as a dock worker, a reader for the blind, a criminal prosecutor, and I taught American History on the college level for five years. My last job was running an 8-bedroom bed and breakfast, a subject I will never write about...

I like historical fiction because I enjoy escaping into the past when I relax. And I write romance because I love a happy ending and everything that happens along the way.

I came to writing late in life and I feel like I have to write fast to catch up! I work every day at a desk looking out over the Sangre de Cristo mountains, my free range birds, and my three flock protecting hounds Earl, Spot, and Rover.

Hi Cyndi,

Hahaha-thanks for sticking up for me--I like it! I'll hide behind you in the GR playground when the "mean kids" come around. Seriously, though, thank you.

Yeah, the cover question... Unless you are a big-time author (or self publishing) it's really hard to tell your publisher what to put on the cover of a book they bought. I agree that the silhouette isn't historically accurate, but the cover is really pretty, so I figure it's a win.

I hope you have a great holiday and stay safe!

Marie Andersson shared a highlight from
A Lady's Guide to Gossip and Murder by Dianne Freeman
London in late summer was really no place to be. With society thin and events like Ascot and the derby a distant memory, the few of us remaining in town were hard-pressed for entertainment. But if one were required to spend the summer in London, one could not choose a better site for an afternoon soiree than Park Lane, with Hyde Park on one side of the street, and some of the largest mansions in London on the other. One might almost imagine oneself in the country. If one were in possession of a superior imagination, that is.

This book was SO GOOD! It was angsty as hell and I stayed up until after 3 to finish it. And--shock!--it had me crying like a baby. I was so impressed by the ending. Such a fantastic, heartrending book and my first by this author. Can't wait to read ...more

Sarah (is only writing short reviews for now) Hi Minerva, It Started With a Scandal is pretty good, 3-4 stars, but I've had to put it slightly to the side to deal with all the BR I'm participating in. I hope to get back to it this week.
