Musings

julia_quinn_what_happens_in_londonI’ve been reading almost nothing but paranormals for the past few months, so when Julia Quinn’s What Happens in London crossed my desk I was excited and began reading it almost immediately. I just finished it and let me just say – Julia is back! Miss Quinn’s newest historical features Olivia Bevelstoke; you might remember her as the sister-in-law and best friend of Miranda, the heroine from her book The Secret Diaries of Miranda Cheever. Olivia is beautiful, charming, smart (I like that in a heroine) and astute. The hero, Sir Harry Valentine, is a mixture of charm and intelligence with the ability to play off his heroine with grace and perfect timing.  Bright, clean, crisp and witty dialogue coupled with characters that are both richly drawn and charismatic …

For the past five years, since the day Todd won the lottery and dumped her at the altar, Torie Hagan’s life has been cursed.  At least, that’s what she believes.  While she and Todd have found their way back to a platonic friendship, every other man who has had the misfortune of dating her has been the victim of some type of injury, almost as if they had been targeted.  Now, with the fifth anniversary of that aborted wedding just around the corner, Todd has come home for a visit but someone isn’t at all happy about his return.  Filled with hatred and more than a little unbalanced, the unknown villain murders Todd, leaving evidence at the scene that will implicate Torie.  …

time_travelerBooks to movies – I’m forever in a quandary as to whether I want to see an ‘adaptation’ of a book.  Personally,  I enjoy the images my mind creates while reading, so I’m not usually  eager to see the film version.    I’ve been disappointed before.   For example,  Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel García Márquez is a beautifully written book and love story.  The movie didn’t come close to capturing it.  The House of Spirits by Isabel Allende is fabulous, telling the story of four generations, incorporating magic with such a unique style you won’t want to put it down.  However, the movie was dreadful. In fact, if you saw the movie first you probably wouldn’t want to read the book, and that is a damn shame.  Clan

montana_creed_romance_book1This just in – taken directly from USA Today’s Book Buzz

This week, one-quarter of the list’s top 50 books are romance novels, and 20% of the books new to the list are in that category. It could be a sign of the times. Romance, especially paranormal romance, and science-fiction/fantasy novels are “outperforming all other categories” at Borders, says buyer Micha Hershman. “There is some escapism going on. There’s clearly an element of ‘How do I get out of the daily grind?’ ” Romances new to the list include Montana Creeds: Dylan by Linda Lael Miller (No. 9), The Grand Finale by Janet Evanovich (No. 12) and One Day at a Time by Danielle Steel (No. 13).

Edmund Fitz Clare is an upyr-a shapeshifting vampire—who must keep his true identity a secret from those he loves: the three orphans he adopted when they were young children and the young woman he has desired for years.  But secrets have a way of catching up to you, and Edmund’s world is about to change.

Estelle Berenger has been close to the Fitz Clare family since she was fifteen years old, when she befriended young Sally Fitz Clare at school.  And she was curiously attracted to Sally’s father, Edmund, which at her age she knew was verboten.  Wrong or not, Estelle found him to be sexy, kind and mysterious – just the sort of qualities to fascinate a …
