A LAZY WEEKEND
I watched the Grand Prix - great result! - and I read. A lot.
First up, I finished Michael Dibden's Aurelio Zen - And Then You Die. The books are nothing like the television series, but I love them.
Then I read Marrying a Prince by Sophie Page. Lovely, lovely romance with a deliciously gruesome New Year's party involving Scottish country dancing. It's years since I've danced an eightsome reel, which is the best fun, but then I didn't knock off the Queen's tiara. Blissful. Hated when it ended.
Then I read the latest Kate Hardy medical, The Fireman and Nurse Loveday. A delightfully warm and emotional romance with a scrumptious hero, exactly what you'd expect from Kate - and with the lovely St Piran, Cornish setting.
Then I downloaded an excerpt from Major Pettigrew's Last Stand. I love that about Kindle. You can try a chunk before you buy. And of course I bought. (You can download a big excerpt of my Beaumont Brides books and give them a go, too. They'll be available on Smashwords for all eBook platforms soon. I'll tell you when.)
I just wish I hadn't had to stick a garden fork in my foot to get all that wonderful reading time!
