I'm just getting back into the routine of things after the holiday celebrations, so it's good to join Barbara, the hostess of Tuesday Intros, with the opening lines of a book that I've just finished reading. I chose it from the library because I liked the cover and thought, ah, yes, I know all about London rain, I've padded about with it dripping down my neck often enough!
I'd never heard of the author but discovered that she's written a number of books featuring the central character, Josephine Tey. What did I think of it? Far too over researched for my taste. I'm confident that all the period details were accurate but they slowed the story down and caused me to be uninvolved in the story line.
Just goes to show, you can't tell a book from it's cover!
