Jude Deveraux or Dick Francis?

We have a decision to make. Karen is not recommending, for our book club discussion, the Jude Deveraux that she read recently. She and Linda are recommending a Dick Francis book published 2006 titled Straight. Kathy is recommending her Jude Deveraux book titled Knight in Shining Armor.

So here are our choices, on one hand we have historical romance fiction, Knight In Shining Armor

On the other hand, we have murder mystery, Straight. In addition Linda says, "How's this for an opening sentence: "I inherited my brother's life. Inherited his desk, his business, his gadgets, his enemies, his horses and his mistress. I inherited my brother's life, and it nearly killed me."

Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet will be our June selection, giving our members time to get this newly published book (January, 2009).

Jude Deveraux. I have read nearly all of her books. However, I don't really think they are your style. Especially her early works.

I have never learned to like Dick Francis. I have tried several books but cannot force myself to finish them.
