Wrapped - Jennifer Bradbury This is in the category of historical fiction which really didn’t work for me. I was willing to suspend my disbelief up to a certain point, but when the heroine is able to speak something like seven languages, including Greek and Russian, my suspension snaps. Actually, I’ll just link you to the Book Smugglers’ review, which said everything I wanted to. [June 2011]
