Happy Friday!!! Welcome to my 27th edition of #FirstLineFridays. This week we have a special theme — “little month, little book.” So, without further ado…
A Night in Grosvenor Square (Timeless Regency Collection)
by Sarah M. Eden, Annette Lyon, and Heather B. Moore
“A Match for Princess Pompous” by Sarah M. Eden
If Adelaide Northrop had to listen to one more ode praising Charity Goddard’s eyes, she was absolutely going to strangle the offending amateur poet with his own overlarge cravat.
“Confections and Pretense” by Annette Lyon
London, Summer 1825
In the back of Gunter’s Tea Shop, Anne eased the back of a mold into a basin of tepid water, then slowly counted to ten before pulling it out again, just long enough to release the ice cream from the metal. With a practiced hand, she flipped the mold over so it landed perfectly centered on the waiting platter. Now came the tricky part: removing the ice cream without destroying the design.
“Little London” by Heather B. Moore
Somewhere outside of London, 1826
Harpshire Village was a far cry from London in both architecture and entertainments, and the type of people who lived in the village were simple folk. The only time a member of the ton was sighted was when they stayed at the Harpshire Inn while en route from London to some vast country estate. Never to actually visit Harpshire itself.
I absolutely LOVE the cover of this book. The attitude of the young woman is awesome, and totally makes me want to read this collection of short stories! And, the stories sound like they will be quite fun and engaging. I can’t wait to get into this book!
Are you a fan of novellas? What “little book” are you looking forward to getting to?
