Books & Recipes

As many of you know, I post my book reviews on Stuff & Nonsense II

If you're a Regency Fiction fan, check out the new book by Julie Klassen, The Maid of Fairbourne Hall. It is excellent! I reviewed it here.

Regency Romance and Mystery from Bestselling Author Julie Klassen
To escape a scheme to marry her off to a dishonorable man, Margaret Macy flees London disguised as a housemaid. If she can remain unwed until her next birthday, she will receive an inheritance, and with it, sweet independence. But she never planned on actually working as a servant. And certainly not in the home of Nathaniel and Lewis Upchurch–both former suitors.
As she fumbles through the first real work of her life, Margaret struggles to keep her identity secret when suspicions arise and prying eyes visit Fairbourne Hall. Can she avoid a trap meant to force her from hiding?
Brimming with romance and danger, The Maid of Fairbourne Hall takes readers inside the fascinating belowstairs world of a 19th-century English manor, where appearances can be deceiving.
So grab a cup of tea or coffee, along with The Maid of Fairbourne Hall, and settle in for a nice cozy afternoon of reading!

Now, on to a couple of recipes I found this week. 
The first is a delicious soup from the cooking blog of Deborah Vogts. Click here.

And for the dessert, I made Soft Caramel Popcorn from The Girl Who Ate Everything.
