I read Borrower of the Night by Elizabeth Peters many, many moons ago. I LOVED it and the series remained one of my favorites for years–including now. April, the fabulous Dragon Reader, is just getting around to reading it for the first time. So we’re going to do a buddy read. I’ll re-read and she’s listening to it on audio on her way to work. We’ll discuss our thoughts as we go along.
Will it hold up for me all these years later?
Will April like it at all?
I maintain that Elizabeth Peters is one of the founders of cozy writing and good mysteries. It’s quite possible that Elizabeth Peters influenced my writing.
We’ll see what April thinks!
Any of you who have read it, feel free to join in with comments. Any of you who haven’t read it, but would like to, grab the book and join in the fun!!! It was on sale a while back, so check your Kindle. You may have picked up the cheap copy. If not, make a library run. It’s popular so your library should have it!!!
Meet art historian Vicky Bliss, She is as beautiful as she is brainy–with unassailable courage, insatiable curiosity, and an expertise in lost museum treasures that often leads her into the most dangerous of situations.
A missing masterwork in wood, the last creation of a master carver who died in the violent tumult of the sixteenth century, may be hidden in a medieval German castle in the town of Rothenburg. The prize has called to Vicky Bliss, drawing her and an arrogant male colleague into the forbidding citadel and its dark secrets. But the treasure hunt soon turns deadly. Here, where the blood of the long forgotten damned stains ancient stones, Vicky must face two equally perilous possibilities. Either a powerful supernatural evil inhabits this place. . .or someone frighteningly real is willing to kill for what Vicky is determined to find.
This post will stay as a sticky at the top of the blog while we’re discussing it–so check below it for newer posts for the week!!!
