Just finished two books: - first CJ Sansom's Winter in Madrid. This was very dense and quite hard to read in places. Lots and lots of historical detail which didn't always grab me. But the characters did and I wanted to read on and find out what happened to them. I liked the way he didn't give us the happy ended we yearned for, but the ending rang true for the characters. Then, in bed last night, I read The Girl of his Dreams by Donna Leon - Excellent crime novel set in Venice. Quite slow paced, but interesting. A new author for me. I will be reading more.
Now I've started on The Bolter - quite a switch!
