So much to talk about! I just read a different Heyer mystery last month (Why Shoot the Butler?) and really enjoyed it. I have The Mysteries of Udolpho on my TBR case and really need to read it already! And I hope you review Death of a Red Heroine, since I've been curious about it. Love the covers on The Ghost Map and Georgette Heyer's Regency World! Oh, and I've never read any Zola but shall fix that one day.

Naked in Death is one of my absolute favorite series and I hope you enjoy it as well :)

Eva: So much to read! (And so much added to your wish list?) I've just finished Death of a Red Heroine and plan to review it on the weekend, once I've clarified something I want to mention.

Samantha: I have been wanting to read the series for so long! I can't wait.

I really enjoyed The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and The Mysteries of Udolpho. :)

Marg said...

Oh you are starting the In Death series! I love those books!

Last year at the Melbourne Writer's Festival I heard Jennifer Kloester talk about Georgette Heyer. She certainly had lots of very interesting pieces of information to share.

Amat Libris said...

Becky: I'm really looking forward to those two - they're such perfect titles for R.I.P. IV.

Marg: Lucky you! Sounds like I should pay more attention to writer's festivals in the hope of finding something interesting.
