Started a re-listen to this favourite while visiting Vancouver. It‘s so beautiful down by the Convention Centre and the Pan Pacific. No cruise 🚢 ships yet.

I love this book! It is both well written and intelligent. This is a retelling of Shakespeare‘s “The Taming of the Shrew”, which is why I think I enjoyed it so much. The heroine is single not because of a lack of beauty or desirability, but because she is politically active and has a habit of speaking her mind to anyone at any time in any situation. The banter between the hero and the heroine is hilarious. (Difficult Dukes, second in series)

Preferred the first book in the series more but still a good one. I would have liked a little more drama. One thing is if you follow Chase on any of her socials she post inspiration and historical facts she uses in her books and it makes reading her books more fun... at least for me ha! A quick read between all my heavier books. #bookspinbingo

A mild day out. So reading while these three ...basically tear up the lawn looking for treasure. 😅
@TheBookHippie these are the main three I am always writing about and love those stickers!
The older one will be here after she‘s out of school!

slategreyskies When my sons were that age, I‘d plant things in the driveway for them to find. Bits of tiny turquoise colored rocks from old aquariums or an old Matchbox car or even once a piece of pyrite. They‘d dig about and find a dusty piece of something they were sure was treasure and bring it to me so so excited. I miss those days. 13mo
Ash.on.the.line @slategreyskies that‘s a great idea! I‘ll have to try that with them. It‘s so fun to see their joy at a simple thing. 13mo

thegirlwiththelibrarybag The ending of the Jackaby quartet was great but I‘d also be over the moon if the author decided to revisit the characters. 13mo
Ash.on.the.line @thegirlwiththelibrarybag Yes I would love to see what they are up to! 😄 13mo

This has been my "waiting for children to fall asleep" kindle book for the last week, and it was super fun! Loved all the characters and fun Shakespeare references

This Saturday evening I'm starting an ARC of the next Loretta Chase book. Her last book came out in 2017 and I've patiently been waiting for the next book in the series. Finally out in December! #romantsy
