Innocence & Elegance


London's hotter than a gigolo's groin today, which is no joke when you have a take a London bus. Managed to assuage the hideousness by buying, and reading, Innocence by Kathleen Tessaro. I enjoyed Elegance, although I'm not sure if I was more fascinated by the aged etiquette mistress Kathleen quotes than the protagonist herself.

Innocence begins unassumingly. However the story pans out, the cover has seduced me.
