When Fate and a chivalrous impulse combine to saddle Viscount Desford with a friendless, homeless waif in the engaging shape of Cherry Steane, who else should he turn to in such a scrape but his childhood playmate, Henrietta Silverdale? And although they refused to oblige their parents by marrying, they have always been the best of friends. But as Desford pursues Cherry's grandfather and father around the seedier fringes of society, Hetta is forced to wonder if he might not, at last, have fallen in love.

I read the book about 30 years ago. It is a pleasure to revisit the story. Daniel Phillpott brings all of the characters to life. Now I am looking forward to “The unknown Ajax”.

Once Olympia Wingfield had been free to devote all her time to her true passion: the study of ancient legends and long-lost treasure. But now, with three hellion nephews to raise, the absentminded beauty has very little time for research. Which makes it seem all the more serendipitous when a handsome stranger strides into Olympia’s library unannounced and proceeds to set her world to rights.

I think I have read the Austin at least 5 times and seen the movie 2 or 4 times. All have been heartily enjoyed.
This is my favorite version! I am sending it to my sister.
Kudos to the Thompson ladies and the entire cast.

  • First Grave on the Right

  • Charley Davidson, Book 1

  • Narrated by: Lorelei King
  • Length: 8 hrs and 58 mins

A smashing, award-winning debut novel that introduces Charley Davidson: part-time private investigator and full-time Grim Reaper. Charley sees dead people. That’s right, she sees dead people. And it’s her job to convince them to “go into the light”. But when these very dead people have died under less than ideal circumstances (i.e. murder), sometimes they want Charley to bring the bad guys to justice. Complicating matters are the intensely hot dreams she’s been having about an Entity who has been following her all her life...and it turns out he might not be dead after all.

The author, Darynda Jones writes the book in the fantasy style. All of her characters are a little off center. The story is about a Grim Reaper. The main
Male in the is as ephemeral as smoke and moves fast. Is he dead or alive? Read a sample to see if you like it. The narrator is Lorelei King. If you have read the Stephanie Plum mysteries you know how brilliant and funny she is. I was excited to know Ms king is the voice and the heart of the story.
