I'm reading several books at once, nothing unusual for all of us, I'm sure! Reviewed The Weed that Strings the Hangman's Bag, the second book with 11-year-old genius sleuth, Flavia de Luce. Loved it.
Have started reading a novel that just arrived from the author, Rosy Thornton of Cambridge, England. A history professor, Rosy has turned her hand to writing novels as well. Her latest, The Tapestry of Love will be released Dec. 14 in paperback. It's set in the rustic mountains of France, where a retired Englishwoman has bought a farm and house in order to make and sell tapestries and drapes. The cover suggests that life in the French countryside may be a bit more challenging than it would seem. I suspect this is also a love story, from the title. Armchair traveler that I am, I'm enjoying the book so far.
I've borrowed a few audiobooks from the library, an M.C. Beaton among them, Death of a Dreamer (Hamish Macbeth Mysteries, No. 22), set in the Scottish highlands. Inspector Hamish Macbeth is such a colorful and eccentric character, both in how he solves crimes and in his up and down love life! A confirmed bachelor, he is always just escaping the traps laid for him by would-be brides.
Am continuing to scribble little verses, some that are okay and some that may be just so-so, on my new poetry blog, Strummed Words. Hope you will visit and leave a hopeful comment or two :)
