I really liked Winter in Madrid even though the subject matter is so bleak.

And I am definitely going right out to find the Catriona McPherson books! Doesn't it drive you crazy when you are missing out on a good series?!? ;)

I really enjoyed Winter in Madrid, but didn't like the Shardlake books - I only read the first one, so they may have improved for me with further reading. Interestingly Victoria Hislops second novel is set in Spain, Malaga this time and I recomend it, although it doesn't seem to have had the same (public) impact as her first novel.

I was lucky enough to be one of the earliest readers of Angela Young's 'Speaking of love' in hardback, and when wrote my review on Librarything, the publisher contacted me to see if they could quote from me on the paperback issue. Naturally, I agreed. It is a fantastic slow-burning story that totally involves you.

I adore Speaking of Love, it was one of the first review books sent to me, and I was very lucky to get such a great one - I re-read it a year or so ago, and it stood up to that perfectly. Can't wait for her next book.

I really enjoyed Speaking of Love too. And following your earlier mention of the Dandy Gilver books I have After the Armistice Ball with me at my parents - looking forward to it!

The Dandy Gliver book sounds really really good am going to have to keep my eyes out for that one.

I too enjoyed Winter in Madrid, in fact I see to remember loving it. I must read the second in the Shardlake series, I liked the first but wasnt hooked, will dabble in the second one soon!

Thanks folks, you're all right and I probably should have got Speaking of Love onto teh TBR pile earlier.

Germanium Cat - hope you enjoyed The Dandy Gilver. Indeed I hope I enjoy it it too - I haven't read any others yet but The Winter Ground was so good it will be horrible to be disappointed. I love Catriona McPherson's website too.
