So, you would say you like Margaret Frazer, eh? Nice to see you change things up with Pennman. How are you enjoying her so far? I am about 100 pages into Here Be Dragons.

Penman is my favorite author and I have read all of her books. I can truly say that there isn't a time in her books where I get bored and to me that speaks volumes on her writing ability.
The books on my list written by Frazer were part of a historical mystery series that took place during the reign of King Henry VI of England. It made sense to read one right after the other since the new book started where the old one left off. Tomorrow I start the Catherine LeVendeur series by Sharan Newman.

Here Be Dragons is my very first Penman novel, loving it so far by the way. With most authors I find I can't read their books consecutively, I have to jump around to other authors to give myself a break.
