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.

Medicus - Ruth Downie A very enjoyable first book in a mystery series set in the Roman Empire. The setting is unusual -- a backwater in Britannia -- and the characters of Ruso and Tilla very appealling. The villain is a bit predictable, but what sets this one apart is the use of humour, which is muchly needed. Four stars overall, recommended.
