I promised OctoberCountry that I would let him know if there were explicit straight sex scenes in the book. So far it's heavier on the romance than the suspense, but it explains a lot about how Josh (Diana?) got to know the standard romance tropes so well. I got about halfway through last night. I don't think it would be to OctoberCountry's taste, or to the taste of other gay men who don't read straight romance. But it would definitely be to Mom's taste, at least so far.
Slightly later: I went to the library and got Corpse Pose, the first in the yoga mystery series, and Verse of the Vampyre, the second one in the poetry mystery series. The third in the poetry mystery series, Sonnet of the Sphinx, is in another library in the system, so I put a hold on it. I did an interlibrary loan request for Dial Om for Murder, the second in the yoga mystery series.
A little later than that: I watched an episode of "The Borgias." I'm halfway through the third season now.
I chatted with Jules for a little while.
Later: I finished High Rhymes and Misdemeanors. It would definitely be to Mom's taste. Diana said she wrote it as an homage to old-fashioned romantic suspense. Mom reads a ton of straight romances, and some cozy mysteries. I chatted with Riah for a bit.
Later still: I watched another episode of "The Borgias." I had commented on the Goodreads Backlot Gay Book forum on the Josh Lanyon thread last night. I reviewed High Rhymes and Misdemeanors today.
