Due to going through one of my "I can't sleep" phases this past week, I finished Apollo's Child, by Joan Smith, a "new" book for my 2010 New/Old Reading Challenge in record time for me! I don't usually review books for my reading challenge, but since Apollo's Child had NO reviews for it on Goodreads, I took the time to write one. Here's what I wrote:
One of Heyer's funniest Regency romances, and one of readers' favorites.
An impetuous young lady and a fugitive nobleman…
When spirited Eustacie stumbles into a band of smugglers, she is delighted to be having an adventure at last. Their leader, young heir Ludovic Lavenham, is in hiding, falsely accused of murder. Pursued by the law, Eustacie and Ludovic find refuge at an unassuming country inn.
And the delightfully sensible couple who try to keep them out of trouble...
The resourceful Miss Sarah Thane and the clear-thinking Sir Tristram Shield gamely endeavor to prevent Ludovic's arrest and Eustacie's ruin as the four conspire to recover the missing talisman ring that will clear Ludovic's name.
Stop by on Tuesday, and I'll share a Tuesday Teaser with you!
