Even if it was a silly romance novel, what's the last book you finished? I just got done with one called Savage Girl, it's by Jean Zimmerman. It's sort of a mashup of My Fair Lady and Blood Meridian. I pretty much love anything having to do with the Victorian Era and murder mysteries, so this was like heaven. It's filled with twists and turns, and I had NO clue who the murderer was until the end. I read the whole thing in a weekend. I'm going to pick up Zimmerman's other novel, I think it's called Orphan Train.
