I've got a number of books on the go at the moment, which is unusual for me.
I'm just about to finish A Tainted Dawn by B.N. Peacock. This one takes place in the late 18th century and is set in England, France and the Caribbean. The reviews have been mixed but I'm enjoying it.
I'm also still reading The Firebird by Susanna Kearsley, a sort-of sequel to The Winter Sea that takes place in the modern day and the 18th century. It's quite good, but won't dislodge The Shadowy Horses and Mariana from the top of my list of favourite Kearsley novels.
I'm halfway through Mistress to the Crown by Isolde Martyn, which is about Jane Shore, mistress to Edward IV. This one is also getting mixed reviews but I like what I've read so far.
Finally, I'm re-reading my all-time favourite novel, Persuasion by Jane Austen.
