A Swarming of Bees by Theresa Tomlinson
A Swarming of Bees by Theresa Tomlinson
I was a little apprehensive about this novel as I don't really like murder mysteries. However, I was pleasantly surprised as it's so much more than a tradition "who done it".
The main character, the herb-wife is a fascinating woman who is having to fit into a new world of Christianity which could be hostile towards her pagan roots. The background of this change in religion is fascinating as well as the references to a great plague. It's a period of history that I know very little of and Tomlinson has opened my eyes on real people from the time. It's such a good read and I'm so glad that I took a chance on it.
A Cruel Harvest by Paul Reid

This is a really interesting novel that touches upon the little know white slave trade during the 18th century. It also includes a brief glimpse into Moroccan history as well as that of Ireland. It is also a lovely romance, even if some of the dialogue is a little cheesy. I'd definitely recommend for anyone who likes historical romance.
Cut from the Same Cloth: A Humorous Traditional Re&hellip by Kathleen Baldwin
I really enjoy the Aunt Honore books, this is the second that I've read. She's such a character, fully of witty comments and sounds exactly like an aunt I'd love to have!
What I enjoyed about this novel is the lighthearted nature of it. There is an element of peril and the usual "will they won't they" but there's so much humour and wit that it's a joy to read. I really love the characters as well, again the dialogue between them is great and often has me smiling.
