WWW: Wednesday

WWW: Wednesdays is hosted by MizB over at Should Be Reading.

To play along, just answer the following three questions....

*What are you currently reading?
*What did you just recently finish reading?
*What do you think you'll read next?

A Blunt Instrument by Georgette Heyer: Who would kill the perfect gentleman? When Ernest Fletcher is found bludgeoned to death in his study, everyone is shocked and mystified. Ernest was well liked and respected, so who would have a motive for killing him? Superintendent Hannasyde, with consummate skill, uncovers one dirty little secret after another, and with them, a host of people who all have reasons for wanting Fletcher dead. Then, a second murder is committed, giving a grotesque twist to a very unusual case, and Hannasyde realizes he's up against a killer on a mission....
Finished Since Last Wednesday (click titles for reviews):
Penhallow by Georgette Heyer
Footsteps in the Dark by Georgette Heyer

(I'm on quite a little Heyer reading jag....)

Up Next:
A Foreign Affair by Caro Peacock
Death in Hellfire by Deryn Lake
Behold, a Mystery! by Joan Smith (which...if it takes long enough to get there, could count towards the Christmas Challenge, it's set in Regency England at Christmas time)

And I'm still waiting impatiently for Nov 26th so I can start the Christmas Spirit Reading Challenge. Looking forward to:
A Christmas Carol & Other Christmas Writings by Charles Dickens
Mistletoe Mysteries collected by Charlotte MacLeod
Christmas Stalkings collected by Charlotte MacLeod
A Christmas Grace by Anne Perry

Thanks for stopping by earlier. :)

I keep meaning to read The Reluctant Widow by Georgette Heyer, as Setphen Fry listed it as one of his favourites! I've never read any Heyer yet though...
