I want to read that one very much Princess Garnet! Today I bought 'The Time of Singing' by Elizabeth Chadwick and 'Green Darkness' by Anya Seton from the Works, a discount bookshop :)

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

I pre-ordered The Second Duchess, by our own Elizabeth Loupas. I read the chapter she posted, and I was hooked.

"Hawk" by George Green
"The Body in the Thames: Chaloner's Sixth Exploit in Restoration London (Thomas Chaloner Mysteries)" by Susanna Gregory
"Gentleman Captain (Matthew Quinton Journals 1)" by J.D. Davies
"The Remains of the Dead: A Ghost Dusters Mystery" by Wendy Roberts

Funny how Gentleman Captain went from "only one in stock" to "in stock" after I bought it. Amazon are clever guys... :D

I really enjoyed both George Green's books, Hawk and Hound. I wish he'd written more - I wonder what happened to him?

Emr: The Ghost Duster series ends after the 3rd book, her option for more wasn't picked up or something like that, sigh! I liked them!

hm
i got the impression from her blog that she was studying the setting for a new novel. The article when she asks where would you hide a cadaver? I read it a while back, I may be wrong.

Emr: this is the last I heard about it "2) My publisher decided not to renew the Ghost Dusters series beyond three books. I’ve received many emails asking about the next book but, unfortunately, it’s not to be. Publishing is, after all, a business and this was purely a business decision and doesn’t affect my opinion of my wonderful agent and amazing editor." from her blog on Oct 4, 2010. I saw the post about hiding a body but no where does she say that it's for a new Ghost Dusters book, but maybe if we're lucky it will be!
