Telynor's Library, and then some

A woman of a certain age who has three cats underfoot, and has the dream of filling her passport with stamps. Books, classical music, tea, cats, movies, art, fancy needlework,  and anything else I can think of.

Hostage Queen - Freda Lightfoot This was a book that I really wanted to like, but try as I could, I could not get past the major flaws in this one, and they are pretty big. Mostly, the author spends a great deal of the book telling me what is happening, not showing it to me, and there was so much squandered possibilities there to create a really great novel. Too, it felt very much like a retelling of Alexandre Dumas' La Reine Margot. It just did not work, and that's too bad.
