Lately, I've been reading a lot of historical novels. Severn House Publishers are now offering historical mysteries, so they sent me the file for WHEN THE DEVIL DRIVES, by Caro Peacock. The book is set in 1839, and starts off with a bang! A young man begs novice private investigator Liberty Lane to find his missing girlfriend. As she investigates, she learns that young women all over London are turning up dead, and rumors abound of a dark chariot that is whisking them away.
I'm also reading THE FLIGHT OF GEMMA HARDING, by Margot Livesey, book that some critics have called a modern make-over of JANE EYRE.
THE CREATIVE LICENSE: GIVING YOURSELF PERMISSION TO BE THE ARTIST YOU REALLY ARE by Danny Gregory is open and draped over a sofa arm. I like what Gregory has to say about giving ourselves permission to be creative.
CHARLOTTE BRONTË'S THUNDER by Michele Carter explores the question of who really wrote WUTHERING HEIGHTS, and she's got me convinced it was Charlotte not her sister, Emily.
How about you? What are you reading these days?
