Due out soon, the third book in the excellent Hanno Stiffeniis mystery series by husband/wife team Michael Gregorio. The series is set in Prussia during the Napoleonic War period, and features a young Prussian magistrate whose mentor is the philosopher, Kant.

Of course. I dont see how it can't be. Her books are so hot and cold. I like the Romanov one, but I crave anything Russian. Her Marie A. book was OK, the Wife of Henry VIII I liked and the Josephine downright sucked. I'm getting this one from the library, if I even read it.

Hmmm, the only thing I think she might find historically entertaining about Mary might be with her and Boswell. Either way, there are enough books out there on Mary and I don't find her all that interesting.

Wow, that one sounds terrific. Civil War spies and a focus on religion, loyalty and race in addition to the romantic aspect. The Civil War always makes good source material for novels, but this one sounds different, sort of like a Jewish Cold Mountain. Very much looking forward to it.

A friend is sending me the ARC for that one; I am very excited! I've read her two other books and was rather wowed by them (the second one, In The Image, is amazing, tho both books have their share of Jewish mysticism which isn't everyones cuppa) So I am hoping this one is just as good! (tho Adriane, I will probably not read your review till I read it :)
