Joan's quick pick of the week.


How I loved The Winter Palace by Eve Stachniak.  I have been reading historicals since I was a teen, and this is a goodie. Young orphan, Vavara, finds refuge in the Winter Palace and is soon recruited to spy on the Empress Elizabeth. But when a  young German princess called Catherine is introduced to the court to marry the goofy heir to the throne, Vavara finds herself chosing sides in a game of dangerous intrigue.  What’s not to love here?  Great characters, great plot and first rate history.
