In this podcast, Jane and Sarah disagree mightily about a book they've both read, Study in Seduction by Nina Rowan. Jane liked it, Sarah did not, and we debate the reasons why some parts of the book worked for one but didn't work for the other. We disagree so many times in this podcast, you might think we're going to meet out back and start dueling. One of us might have thrown a glove.
We both love quirky and intellectual heroines, but as usual our reading tastes do not line up – it's a rare thing when we both like the same book.
We also answer some more reader mail about our podcast episode on serial fiction, and Jane answers some of Sarah's questions about the Department of Justice settlement.
Here are the books we discuss in this week's podcast:
We also mention a reader picture in the podcast – and have a look. It's the desk drawer of magical plenty!
The music this week was provided by Sassy Outwater, and this piece is “Sonata for Piano, Op. 26: Fuga: Allegro Con Spirito” by Samuel Barber, and it's performed by Jade Simmons. It's from her album Revolutionary Rhythm, which is on sale as an mp3 at Amazon or iTunes.
