The Anatomist’s Wife The Anatomist’s Wife by Anna Lee Huber is $2.99 at Amazon, which means this deal could expire soon! This is a historical mystery that we tend to recommend on Instagram who want Deanna Raybourn or Lady Sherlock read-alikes. Some people found the prose a bit flowery, while others loved the characters and setting. Scotland, 1830. Following the death of her husband, Lady Darby has taken refuge at her sister’s estate, finding solace in her passion for painting. But when her hosts throw a house party for the cream of London society, Kiera is unable to hide from the ire of those who believe her to be as unnatural as her husband, an anatomist who used her artistic talents to suit his own macabre purposes. Kiera wants to put her past aside, but when one of the house guests is murdered, her brother-in-law asks her to utilize her knowledge of human anatomy to aid the insufferable Sebastian Gage—a fellow guest with some experience as an inquiry agent.

B+ Rebel by Beverly Jenkins May 28, 2019 · Avon Historical: AmericanRomance This guest review comes from Claudia. Thanks, Claudia! At sixteen, Claudia found her older cousin’s stash of Barbara Cartlands and assorted Harlequin-type romance housed in an old sewing cabinet and life was never the same! She loves history, so she mostly reads historical romance. Favorite authors include Meredith Duran, Mary Balogh, Miranda Neville, Elizabeth Kingston, and Rose Lerner. … CW/TW for attempted rape First off, the cover! To me, it pays homage to some of the “old school” romance covers, and offers a fresh take. A lot of its elements work for me: The woman’s gorgeous dress, her tight bun, the dreamy live oak and the moss in the background…. I want to learn more about those two people, who are obviously drawn to each other but not quite surrendering to a full embrace. Who are they, and where exactly are they? That to me is what a good cover does — it draws you in and makes you want to know more. I was definitely hooked. The other big draw was that the book unfolds in place and time settings that were completely new to me, New…

There are some videos that always, without fail, no matter how many times I’ve seen them, make me laugh or at least give me that bubbly feeling of delight when I watch them again. I figured you had some as well, so I figured, why not ask? What videos always make you laugh? I asked the crew here at SBTB HQ and now I’m a mess. Amanda: Amanda: If you aren’t watching Schitt’s Creek, you need to rectify that. Elyse: Sarah: “Get him, Derry!” Elyse: I lose it when the dog pees, every single time. Sarah: I am now cry-laughing. This one always gets me: Russell Howard, after announcing that the English accent was voted “sexiest” by some poll, attempting to prove that idea very wrong: Two words: wheelie bins. Carrie: Sarah: Banana Head Fart Man? How is that not a movie? What about you? What videos always make you laugh, every time? A few guidelines, if you please: drop links in the comments, of course, but give us a bit of an intro into what it is, and why it makes you laugh?
