Look! It's a Friday Book Blog!
I did get a chance to read this week since I had a few days off. My favorite of the lot was Tasha Alexander's Death in the Floating City.
Yes it's a murder mystery. Set in Venice in the 1800s. However, above all that, it's well-plotted and the scenes are evocative without being overly descriptive. The Romeo and Juliet angle is a bit overdone, but overall, a good read.
