    Karen - Thanks, as always, for these links. It's really not fair, though - not only are two of them historical novels (which I enjoy) but so many are tempting! My poor TBR!!! ;-)

    Karen, thanks for all that hard work.

    What a lot of work, Karen, thanks so much. Good batch of reviews but as I am not all that keen on historical fiction I think I am largely let off the hook!
