1. What are you currently reading? Royal Sisters by Anne Edwards. A sympathetic look at Elizabeth and Margaret Rose before and after their uncle gave up the throne and turned their lives upside down. I picked this up last summer at my library's book sale and this feels like the right time to read it. Queen Elizabeth is 90 now and it feels like she's been old forever. Not true! She was once a child and a student and a sister and a dreamy, romantic girl. 

2. What did you recently finish reading? An Appetite for Murder by Lucy Burdette. I wish I liked this book more. It's the first in a cozy, foodie mystery series by an author who clearly knows and loves Key West. I always appreciate it when a book can create such a unique sense of place, but the heroine, Haley, is such a ditz! When a woman she has complicated connections to is found murdered -- poisoned by Key Lime pie -- the Key West PD comes knocking at the door of Haley's houseboat. Hayley then goes on to behave unwisely and implausibly and does everything she can to remain a person of interest in the case. Unfortunately, I doubt I'll be reading another installment in this series anytime soon (ever).

3.  What will you read next? A biography from my tall TBR pile.
