Rainer Maria Rilke

"Live a while in these books, learn from them what seems to you worth learning, but above all love them. This love will be repaid you a thousand and a thousand times, and however your life may turn,-it will, I am certain of it, run through the fabric of your growth as one of the most important threads among all the threads of your experiences, disappointments, and joys."--Rainer Maia Rilke

No Strain for the Brain--Just Fun

High Rhymes and Misdemeanors:  A Poetic Death Mystery by Dana Killian

Romantic Mystery

Grace Hollister wanted nothing more than a fun, literary vacation in England's Lake District, the favorite stomping grounds of her favorite Romantic authors.  During a leisurely walk in the woods, Grace discovers the body of a man in a stream.  The body turns out to be alive-very alive-and Grace seems unable to leave Peter Fox, the body, alone.  When the men who tried to kill Peter attack and kidnap Grace, the two decide (Peter somewhat reluctantly) to team up and figure out what the kidnappers want.

This book has a lot going for it-a fun, smart main character who loves English poets; a sexy love interest who can cook and is into antiques; a quirky mystery.  All it in all, it was a delightful romp--but very easy on the brain.  I can see this being a successful series with two sets of romantic detectives.  If you're into real sleuthing, skip this altogether.  But, if you want a fun, easy read, this was a pleasant diversion.
