I was also hoping to be done with Jasper by Tony Riches by the end of the month but didn't quite get there. This month had it's share of hits and misses & they are listed above in my approximate ranking from best - Colour of Poison - to worst - Katherine of Aragon: True Queen. Interestingly, these are both novels written by women who are better known for their historical nonfiction.
