Sugar Daddy by Lisa Kleypas, I read the other two about the Travis family. This books are really good. I cant put them down. I wish she had some more contemporary novels out. I tried reading one of her early works that was a historical romance novel, and I couldn't get passed the first few chapters. It was way too cliched for me.

Yeah, I saw the date on the NYT review. Looked it up. Thanks for mentioning that.

I just got through reading Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton and am now just digging into Brave New World by Aldous Huxley.

It's all part of my re-read the classics "to do" list. I have a list of 25 classic novels that is my goal to read or re-read by the end of the year.

Just started "Inés of my Soul" by Isabel Allende, one of my favourite authors. So far so good.

I just finished up "An Inconvenient Wife" by Megan Chance. For any of those interested in Historical Ficton, this is a great read. It takes place in NYC in the 1850's. You really get drawn into the lives of women and "proper" society during this time. It is about a society woman's struggle to conform to the rules placed upon her due to her social standing. You learn about early treatments of brain disorders and hysteria. Scary stuff. The book sweeps you along and gives you an ending you don't expect. An excellent read.

That sounds really good! I am going to have to look for it!

I just finished Best Intentions by Emily Listfield. It was ok. And I am reading The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton.
