Hi, Linnie Gayle. Since you are the person who turned me onto Elizabeth Peters' Amelia Peabody books which I LOVED, I was wondering if you had heard anything about a new book being published in April. I hven't really been able to find out much about it. I am thinking that EP must be getting up there in years and I am surprised to see a new book from her. Thrilled, but surprised.
Hi there LinnieGayl. Yes, I've thoroughly enjoyed that series and look forward to the next one as soon as it comes out. Also very much enjoyed the Tracy Grant book and am looking forward to the next few in that series too. Currently reading the Norwegian book by Jo Nesbo The Redbreast. Quite fascinating. ... now have to get back to work. Ta. M!
Dear Linnie Gayl:
Hi. How are you? I would like to be your friend on shelfari. What are your favorite book genres so far? I like mysteries that keep you guessing and good romance stories. Thank you for suggesting One Perfect Rose. I'll have to look for it. Do you ever let other people on Shelfari read your books when your done with them? Please write back. Sincerely, Judy
Well, I finished Tomb of the Golden Bird, ending my first read of the entire Amelia Peabody series over the last several months. I thoroughly enjoyed the entire series and felt as if the Emerson clan and their extended family were long-time friends that I checked in with regularly. I'll miss them. I had gotten the first books in the series from the library but am gradually putting the entire set on my Kindle so I can reread at some point. It is sad to think that there won't be any more AP books to follow. Thanks again for turning me onto to this delightful series. I may tackle the Vicky Bliss series next.
Oh, I just cracked up at the ending, too! That was too, too, funny. And poetic justice for Ramses.... Does the last book, Tomb of the Golden Bird, kind of wrap things up as far as the series goes? I almost don't want to read that book because I know it is the last. Boo hoo!
Linniegayl - I got tuned into the Amelia Peabody mysteries after the review of Crocodile on the Sandbank last fall on AAR. I think it was you who really convinced me to give them a try and provided me with a list of the books in the series. She does have a new book due out later this summer and I think it may be an Amelia Peabody mystery.
Have you tried C.S. Harris' historical mysteries? They are set in Regency England and the main character is Sebastian St. Cyr, Viscount Devlin. There have been 3 books published so far - What Angles Fear, When Gods Die, and Why Mermaids Sing. There is a lot of political intrigue and some very interesting characters. There is a romance in the story lines involving St. Cyr. You should look into them; I have found them fascinating to read. C.S. Harris wrote historical romances under the name Candice Proctor; her research is very thorough as she has a PhD. in history.
Hi, LinnieGayl. I noticed that you just posted A Fatal Waltz by Tasha Alexander. I just finished reading this a couple of days ago and thought it was great. I think this is my favorite of the series so far. I love the sense of place she creates with her books and the characters are wonderful. I hope the Duke gets a story; I really want him to fall hard and have a HEA!
