Please write a review for The Virgin's Tale. It sounds interesting, but since no one has heard about it I wonder how good it is.

The publisher is Simon & Schuster UK, but most of the reviews out there are Canadian (and the author is Canadian). I'll add it to my list :D

Arrived yesterday in the mail :

Maria Gonzalez by Nickie Fleming.

She's a Belgian writer (lives about half an hours drive from where I live) who writes in English.
I know her from another forum I'm on and I bought it directly from her.
I'm curious about this one.

I have heard nothing but raves about this one. Patiently waiting for my turn at the library. I'm about 10 of 22 holds on 10 copies.

Mary Anne by Daphne Du Maurier -- thank you for the recommend on this, Misfit!


Looking forward to what you think of it and Du Maurier. Next up are The Scapegoat and Frenchman's Creek.
