#LaughOutLoud! #HolidayCheer
Very short excerpt from ch.4- a hilarious account of aspiring playwright Roydon reading aloud his first play(set in a brothel)to an motley, unlikely, puritanical cast of characters thrown together for Christmas at their wealthy uncle‘s house. I could not stop laughing out loud which felt wonderful! Maybe the hour, 2 a.m., contributed to my giddiness?!

batsy I'm chuckling as I read, too! Heyer has a way with depicting deliciously unlikeable characters. My favourite right now is Maud 😆 1mo
Mdargusch I have this up next! I picked it because it‘s supposed to be funny so I‘m glad it made you laugh! 1mo

“It was a source of great satisfaction to Joseph Herriard that the holly trees were in full berry.” Great opening sentence to this holiday novel.

Texreader Agreed! 1mo

#Book Report #SaturdayDec7 #nonfiction #holidaycheer #mysteryoftheweek
Say Nothing: #nonfiction only got to p. 206
Maigret Chritmas : #holidaycheer finished my first introduction to this series- such fun! His character is great.
The Disappearance of Alistair Ainsworth: #mystery of the week. Don‘t know why I felt compelled to finish- may because I enjoyed other books by the same author. Would not recommend- I found it boring.

Cinfhen So your books balanced each other a yeah and a nah 2mo

And on my other side was Elizabeth Mitchell, whose newest novel is psychological suspense, a serial killer mystery that will have you grasping for clues!
Here‘s the author, being photo-bombed by Santa!

Dede was to my left for #HolidayCheer, the OHS event with 80 #oregon #authors selling books with #santa, #carolers, and a #hotchocolate stand. Most excellent.
We swapped books, and I can‘t wait to read her first Oregon novel! She‘ll also be at our #jolabokaflod event on Dec 28, for those of you in the area... 🤩💗🎉
