Just joined and just started - rather belatedly - the Shardlake series. On No.2

Welcome, Chris! I've only read the first Shardlake so you are not alone! I thought Dissolution was excellent, though.

HI Chris, hope you enjoy the book. I've read the second one - Dark Fire - and that was even better.

In a nostalgic mood, so I picked up Mary Stewart's Madame Will You Talk. Also reading Marsha Canham's new pirate novel, The Following Sea. Even when they're predictable, I find Canham's pirate romances to be quite a lot of fun.

I can now peep and have done so! Yes, I suppose he was. She definitely had a better offer by the end of the book.

My next read is You Deserve Nothing by Alexander Maksik.
