The Dead Daughter by Thomas Fincham. Very engaging. Definitely recommended.

I finished the most excellent A Quartet in Autumn by Barbara Pym last night for the MR Literary Book Club. I would not ever have thought to pick it up off the shelf myself, but it will almost certainly be in my top ten for the year now that I've read it. I checked it out from the library, but I am likely to purchase a copy for myself now.

Next up: Tunnel Through the Deep by Harry Harrison. I read this ages ago as "A Transatlantic Tunnel, Hurrah!". It will be interesting to se if it holds up. It might be considered, from what I remember, very early steam-punk, written before that term (or even 'cyber-punk') was coined.
And most enjoyable it was too, with an intentional melodramatic feel. 4/5

And an amusing introduction by Auberon Waugh, as it was the first bit of Science Fiction he'd ever read!

Next Up: Grantville Gazette VIII (print edition). Selected stories from Grantville Gazettes (e-versions) 31-45 inclusive. And a previously unpublished story by Eric Flint.

Trying to sample new flavors with Kate Clayborn's Love Lettering and learning quite a bit about calligraphy along the way. Who knows, by the time I finish it I may even grok why so many MR users obsess over ligatures. Or not.

Love Lettering turned out to be a salutary lesson in the benefits of experimenting. A more satisfying read than I'd expected. Now on to two reasonably long-term residents of my TBR, Adrian Tchaikovsky's Children of Time and Aamin Maalouf's Samarkand

My 3 star review of Sugar and Vice, by Eve Calder:-

Spoiler:
For a short book, this one has a list of distracting flaws. All the bamboozlement about the Pirate George Bly were anything but. I guessed almost everything midway through.

The other, major plot mystery was impossible to guess. The revelations on this crime were a bit ho hum because the author didn't give us clues leading to the solvency of the mystery.

The first book got 4 stars from me. It was better than this successor. And I do want to keep reading this series. I like the setting. Very cozy, domestic, with a believable cast of supporting characters peopling the book.

As I live on an island, I understand the charm of this book. Kate McGuire is a not so flawed character who is flustered but never angry, hardworking but never workaholic, cultivated without being a snob.

The best thing about her is that she isn't a goody two shoes. Well, she is, but the author makes one forget that aspect of her personality. She seems like a real person. I like this series and will keep waiting for newer and newest tales.
