Research On The Run

I’m on the downhill slide of my Marquess and Governess story and plan to finish by Friday. Last week on Diane’s Blog I listed various things I’ve researched for the story. Here are some more:

The Ring in Hyde Park
Title Names in The Incomplete Peerage
How to Speak English Like the Irish
Gunter’s Tea Shop
Floris Perfume Shop
Fencing Terms

Have you guessed the story yet?

(Wish me luck! I do want to finish this on time)

Diane–Very cool figurine, and thanks for sharing your research links! I found the perfume shop especially interesting and am tempted to order a bottle of something or other, just to display. And, of course, spritz when I’m feeling especially duchessy. 😉

I LOVE hearing what other people are researching!! I’m very intrigued by the perfume element. 🙂

Currently I am buried in 1558 England, researching for the new mystery series…

thanks, everyone.

The Floris shop is really a wonder to behold. The clerks are all dressed in black suits and are very helpful. The last time I was in London I visited the shop to buy something for my sister. The clerk found me something I could actually afford!

Alyssia, I have a sudden hankering for some soap from Floris. Maybe I’ll make that my reward for finishing the book!

Sounds like some interesting research. I hope the rest goes easily and you finish in record time. Can’t wait to see what the story is about.
