At a dodgy Edwardian country house party, trying to solve a murder that no-one wants to acknowledge and highly likely to be next on the murderer's list.

Thanks to the dangerously easy-click buying on my brand new Christmas Kindle, I'm charging through M.C.Beaton's Edwardian Mysteries- currently on the third! Unfortunately it seems that like the Travelling Matchmaker books, she didn't write very many of them.

I'm now in modern-day Oxford in the Bodleian Library, nervously contemplating an ancient manuscript, which is having a bit of a strange effect on me!

Regency England, nursing my time traveling Viking back to health, as well as teaching him how to dress and act amongst The Ton so he can find his lost knife and return to his own time.

Our Viking picks up on the language of the day quite easily, having spent enough time on raids to Britannia in his own time...

I raced through the Sookie Stackhouse novels, then bought the 3 seasons of the TV series and am now re-reading the books more slowly to get the full flavour - so I may be gone for some time.
Re the TV series - Have decided that Alexander Starsgard is top of my list to play John Marshal if they ever film A Place Beyond Courage! Wowser!

Edited to say - so yes, I'm now back in Bon Temps too!
