So I grabbed Lord John and the Private Matter at the thrift store because I thought it was an Outlander series book and those always go fast.   I have no interest in reading the Outlander series.  But now this one looks like an Historical mysteries series?  Are they good?

I think they're good - it is historical mystery, not romance, and not part of the Outlander series except that Lord John is a character in the Outlander series. Here's a hint: Lord John is in love with Jamie from Outlander. So Jamie is mentioned a time or two, with great longing because John can never have him. That may or may not affect how you feel about them. It does bother some people.

And yes, they'll go fast once you post them. Only 1 Lord John book is posted now, only 4 copies.

It's unpostable.  I'll probably put it in the Damaged Books Box.
