Miss Marple!

I can’t say I’m a fan of murder mysteries, yet lately I’ve found myself happily engrossed in a great fat volume of Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple stories. What a wonderful character Jane Marple is! So demure, so self-effacing, yet so coolly brilliant and discerning.

She’s definitely one of those characters I’d love to meet in real life. It would be such fun to sit down and have a cuppa with her. :)

I guess it’s because love is in the air. :)

Word of the day: Mayhap (update)

A few months ago, here on the blog I wondered if I could utilize this delightful word in one of my books.Infographic: "mayhap" and its definition, via Merriam-Webster

As it turns out, I already had. Recently, when I was reading the galleys for The Laird Takes a Bride, I saw that a character named Monty says it. A fact which gives me what is probably an insane amount of joy.
