Jump on the night train

I finished Elizabeth Peters' Night Train to Memphis, the last published Vicky Bliss book, which I learned from Google is also a movie and a song. I think Peters had a bit too much fun with this one--but it made the book thoroughly enjoyable.

Peters has really developed the relationship between Vicky and John Smythe (actually John Tregarth, as we learn). It's believable and satisfying. Also, this book was very romantic--not that it involved a lot of lust/sighing/sex, but in that the characters were willing to sacrifice their safety and their own needs for the other person. That is love--placing someone else's needs above your own.

Rating: 9/10
