I ordered mine the same day I ordered the Cijji Ware book. Now, if only I could remember exactly when that was....

I can't wait to hear how it is.  It's on all my book WL's (PBS, B&N, Amazon, Book Dep, etc.)

I think I received my copy fast b/c I pay for 2-day shipping. I took advantage of a free trial and they reeled me in like a fish.

I think I saw mention somewhere that book shipments were delayed because of the severe weather/snow.

Me, I had the book like two months ago and have already read it and reviewed it. Not to rub salt in the wound or anything

I just have to finish this book by Susanna Gregory then I am diving in.  I loved Traitors Wife and Hugh and Bess, so I have high hopes!  Oh who am I kidding I am going to read this now!

I just saw that my copy of "The Stolen Crown" isn't going to be shipped out to me until March 1st. Now that just sucks!

I really liked Traitor's wife too. I especially liked that she didn't dumb it down any. She knew we were intelligent enough to pack the book full of all the people she needed, didn't leave anything out, and she knew we were smart enough to keep everything straight in our minds. I appreciate that! If the book had a flaw, it would be that at times, I felt like I was reading a history book. That's not necessarily a flaw for me though; remember, I like Plaidy! I really liked "Hugh and Bess" too and even in that short of a novel, I felt like her characters were shining through a bit more than in Traitor's Wife. I am really eager to see what she does with Stolen Crown, but my copy won't even be SHIPPED until March 1st. Grrr.....

I bought Traitor's Wife back when it had the plain cover and now I'm really lusting after the new edition with the prettier cover art.

I have read half so far and I am pleased,  I haven't gone to bed thinking of a book and awakened thinking of a book in a very long time.  I haven't read much today I have been unwell and slept most of the afternoon. I have chuckled out loud and cried twice a good sign.
