Time Travel

I read two Titanic Books!!!

Read Escape to Freedom: The Underground Railroad

Keeping the Castle

Keeping the castle: a tale of romance, riches, and real estate by Patrice Kindl — I read this new book because I heard it was similar to Pride and Prejudice.  That may be a bit of a stretch, but it did capture the spirit of that time period in a fun amusing way.  It would be a good introduction to the time period for those who haven't read anything from the regency period yet and are quite ready to tackle one of Jane Austen's works.  I enjoyed the author so much I'll be looking for more works by her in the future.

Spine-tingling Sherlock Case

The dragon turn by Shane Peacock will captivate readers, even if they have not read the first four cases in the award winnning The Boy Sherlock Holmes series. Actually, Sherlock is an astute teen, not boy, in these books and in addition to solving crimes Scotland Yard cannot, he is dealing with male teen coming-of-age issues. Malicious magicians, affairs d'amour gone awry, a missing body, terrifying creatures, and hidden identities keep Sherlock and readers searching for clues that will illuminate what is really going on behind the scenes of The Egyptian Hall. Adding to Sherlock's agony, is his conviction that a female's guiles has spurred him to win the freedom of a wizard who really is the murderer.
