I’m very happy to host The Queen’s Devil on my blog today as a part of the book tour with The Coffee Pot Book Club. Following is a bit about the book and the author, Paul Walker. You’ll find my review toward the bottom.

Told in a split timeline, The Butterfly and the Violin paints the stories of two women, separated by many decades.

I am excited to announce that I have decided to go ahead and publish my fourth and last novel in my By the Light of the Moon series, Harvest Moon, which will be released on November 23rd, 2020.

Based on true stories and told in a split timeline, The Girl Who Came Home is a poignant drama of things both lost and found.

I Am Mrs. Jesse James, by Pat Wahler, reveals the passionate but tumultuous connection of cousins, Zerelda (Zee) Mimms and Jesse James and their love story, riddled with tension, secrets, and lies.

Masterfully told in a split-timeline, All the Flowers in Paris paints a layered story of two women: Caroline, a contemporary woman who grapples to find her identity and handle her grief and Celine, a woman from the past, whose learns to survive, keeping alive what she loves dearly.

The Summer Country, by Lauren Willig, paints a historical picture of life on a sugar plantation in 19th century Barbados.

I thought I’d share some vintage romance books dear to my heart. These are all by Essie Summers, a favorite author of my mom’s. Summers sold over 19 million copies of her books in 105 countries. The copyright for No Orchids By Request, which is my favorite, reads 1965–back when Harlequin Romance books were fairly innocent in content.

In Thrown to the Wind, I found myself immersed in swashbuckling adventure on par with Stevenson’s Treasure Island. Etienne and his family, French Huguenots, flee from religious persecution, taking refuge in the Netherlands for awhile.

Since I started writing historical fiction, I haven’t had as much time to read, but I’m determined to make time for what I love to do. My stack of “to be read” books grows, and I am happy about that. It’s a blessing to be able to read.
