Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

The Talisman Ring

The Talisman Ring - Georgette Heyer

I almost didn't finish this book.  To say I found Eustacie frivolous and vapid would be an understatement, but fellow BL's said it was an entertaining read so I stuck with it.  They were right, but those first three chapters almost killed me.


At the end of the book, I still think Eustacie is frivolous and vapid, but after chapter 4 I started to think of this book as the historical fiction version of a Carol Burnett Show skit, or one of the older British sketch comedies.  That, and the increased focus on Miss Thane and her hilarious brother allowed me to thoroughly enjoy the rest of the book.  


I still like The Grand Sophy better though.
