Entertaining Read
Hell Hath No Fury (Devilish Debutantes Book 1) - Annabelle Anders

Hell Hath No Fury is a well-written and entertaining read. Despite a few phrases that were a bit out of place with time, Anders does a good job of setting the scene and drawing the reader in. We also get some suspense with our romance as the honorable Stephen and our fiery heroine, Cecily, work to manipulate Flavion, and it appears that someone is out to get rid of Cecily... Permanently. The chemistry between Stephen and Cecily can't be denied, even though Stephen's honor demands that he do just that and the banter between them adds some wit and fun to the story. With some characters we can love and some we can love to hate, this romance kept me turning pages to see if this pair would get their happy ever after and if the bumbling Flavion would get his just desserts. 

Overall, this is a solid debut from Anders and I look forward to seeing what's next from this author.

A Collegiate Casting-Out of Devilish Devices - Terry Pratchett 
A Collegiate Casting-Out of Devilish Devices - Terry Pratchett

Pratchett held a keen understanding of academia, as well as of politics, policing, law, assassination, and another myriad subjects that his background wouldn't suggest he was properly educated to address. Clearly the man Terry Pratchett was insufficiently educated to produce such brilliant witty novels. He was no doubt a front for some other writer who had an extensive advanced education in various specialties. It's the only reasonable explanation.

 

Hmmm. I wonder if I can get a grant to research the possibility?

It's dangerous, endearing, dramatic scandal. Hell Hath No Fury should be renamed, It's complicated. Cecily married for love, will she cheat for the same reason?  Two people are caught up in the machinations of a devious plot that can only end in heartache.  Love is a battlefield and Ms. Anders puts readers right on the front lines.  A tempting display of romance.

Review: A Collegiate Casting-Out of Devilish Devices (Discworld "Book" 44 of 49ish)
A Collegiate Casting-Out of Devilish Devices - Terry Pratchett

This was cute and a little bit funny, but it was also very short and it didn’t really have any substance.  It was basically a meeting of the Wizards of Unseen University in which they discuss an inspection report for their university.  Alas, Rincewind was nowhere to be found, nor was he even mentioned.

 

This short story can be read for free here.

Don't tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass.”
― Anton Chekhov

 

 

 

My heart is sad. I read last night that Jo Beverley has passed away. She was one of the first historical romance writers I read after I 'rediscovered' histroms. My introduction to Ms. Beverley was Devilish, and though my copy was a battered and bent, a less than pristine copy bought for pennies at a used book store, I knew I was holding gold in my hands. I finished it in one sitting. That was the beginning of my reading love affair with her Malloren world. Since then I have re-read those original five books many times, and, yes, I replaced my tattered original copy of Devilish with a brand new crisp clean copy. But I've kept the old one, and it will always have a place of honor on my keeper shelf. 

 

She will be missed greatly. My thoughts and prayers are with her family, friends, and colleagues, and I hope she knew what a treasure she was to a reader like me, one who had never met her, but felt as if I knew her, just a little, from the stories she spun so eloquently, from the characters who peopled her books, and from the hours of reading joy she gave me over the years. Safe journey, Ms. Beverley.
