Christa -

I just wanted to say that I read The Convenient Marriage a couple of weeks ago.  It is typical of other Georgette Heyer regence romances - fun and delightful.

I haven't read any Georgette Heyer yet.  But my TBR is so big...I just can't make myself put anything else on it, when other people could be enjoying them.  She is definitely on my list of new-to-me authors that I want to try when I whittle down the pile a bit.

Don't pass up Sarah's Key!  I found it very moving and can see  it becoming a movie soon.  What did you think of it Valli?

Pamela, I thought "Sarah's Key" was wonderful! So heartbreaking and hard to read, but well worth it. This is one of the few books where I enjoyed the modern story as much as the historical one. Very well done! 

I'm suprised no one has snatched up Michelle's copy of "Blood and Roses"! Such a good read! No dry, boring history on these pages. ;-)
