They do seem to be in profusion these days... I'd be interested in seeing what you think of this one.

I also got "This Charming Man" yesterday, it's just been published here in pb and everywhere has it on promotion!

then I got home to find "The Water Horse" by Julia Gregson sitting by my doorstep, hidden behind the doormat by our thoughtful postman!

I hope you enjoy those. I liked This Charming Man but didn't love it as I do some of her other novels.

I really hope you enjoy The Water Horse. I have read both of Julia Gregson's novels and really enjoyed them both.

I second the Julia Gregson recommendation--East of the Sun is very good.

I went to Borders yesterday all really to spend some money. I had three books that I wanted to buy because they are books that i am unlikely to be able to borrow from the library, but they didn't have a single one!

I ended up buying the final book in the Harry Potter series, even though I still have the two books before that to read.
