Persona Non Grata: A Novel of the Roman Empire by Ruth Downie
Genre(s): Fiction, Contemporary Fiction, Historical Fiction
t long last, Gaius Petreius Ruso and his companion, Tilla, are headed home-to Gaul. Having received a note consisting only of the words “COME HOME!” Ruso has (reluctantly, of course) pulled up stakes and brought Tilla to meet his family.
But the reception there is not what Ruso has hoped for: no one will admit to sending for him, and his brother Lucius is hoping he’ll leave. With Tilla getting icy greetings from his relatives, Lucius’ brother-in-law mysteriously drowned at sea, and the whole Ruso family being sued for bankruptcy, it’s hard to imagine an unhappier reunion. That is, until Severus, the plaintiff in the bankruptcy suit, winds up dead, and the real trouble begins…
Engrossing, intricate, and-as always-wonderfully comic, Ruth Downie’s latest is a brilliant new installment in this irresistible series. This is everything we’ve come to expect from our charming, luckless hero.

Merry Christmas With Love by Clay Aiken
From an Amazon Top Reviewer:
ow…. I can’t even think of where to start… let me just throw a few things out there…
* I am obsessed with the song “O Holy Night” and have a habit of buying Christmas music just to hear an artist’s rendition of it. Clay did a SPECTACULAR job on that song and truly knows how to hit the right notes on cue.
* I had never heard Clay before until buying this cd and after listening to the entire thing, I went ahead and purchased his first one as well – his voice really is outstanding, has a fantastic melodic range… is easy to listen to, he carries himself well. He has the looks of a teenager, but a voice I’d put in the same category with classic greats Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, and Nat King Cole…. and NEVER have I put ANY person in the same category as them… so that really says something.
* “Hark The Herald Angels Sing” – amazing vocal range, shows his true talent
The cd is very mellow, if you’re looking for pop, you may be disappointed. But if you like classic christmas music sung by someone that can REALLY sing, then you’ll love this.
