Beautiful Ghost – Milana Marsenich transports us back to Montana in the early 20th century

Today, I am happy to host Milana Marsenich and her book, Beautiful Ghost, as part of her Coffee Pot Book Club tour.  Milana’s novel is set in 1918, just as the dreaded Spanish Flu starts spreading – and I imagine that present-day audiences are better equipped to understand the reactions to this influenza after our

Today, dear peeps, we’re going to be spending time in medieval England, more specifically in the reign of King John.

Drumbeats – an intriguing title for an intriguing book!

Today, I am happy to give a shout-out to Julia Ibbotson and her book, Drumbeats. A bit out of my ordinary reading – albeit that anything that happened in 1965 now qualifies as Historical Fiction.

When nasty things hide in the hay – introducing A Meadow Murder by Helen Hollick!

Frequent visitors to my blog will know I am something of a Helen Hollick fan. Partly because no one wears a hat like she does – at least not among my acquaintances.
