We’re heading for 90 plus days, so bring on those summer reads. I just finished a Julia Quinn romance, What Happens In London. The title is a perfect indicator of her writing style. The dialogue is improbable for 1800′s England but its funny and clever with a 2010 sensibility. Is Sir Harry Valentine a spy or a murderer? Olivia Bevelstoke has taken to spying on him as well. She has also caught the eye of Russian Prince Alexei Ivanovich Gomarovsky who may be a spy himself or at best a scoundrel. Take a spin through this engaging Historical Romance. It looks like Julia’s doing a live broadcast May 26th at 9 pm Okie time. Julia Quinn is my new favorite romance author (at least this week). What romance author are you reading?

So start getting your lists ready, temperatures are rising, days are long and television reruns stink.
