I listened to Middlesex on audiobook and the narrator was really, really good! Great story!!
Queen's Ransom is the third book in the Ursula Blanchard series of mysteries, set in the court of Queen Elizabeth I.
Exile is the second book in the Garnethill trilogy set in Glasgow.
Music and Silence is probably the second worst book I read this year, yet I should have loved it. The setting was the court of King Christian of Denmark in the 1600's..right up my alley, but I just couldn't read it.
Slightly Dangerous is the last book in the Bedwyn series but I read it first. I think I would have appreciated it much more if I had of read the series in order.
