Confederates Don’t Wear Couture (Pilgrims #2)
by Stephanie Kate Strohm
Another fantastic adventure for the
Scooby Squad Libby and Dev. This time at a Civil War reenactment circuit. Dev gets the crazy idea to start a business in historical clothing, and picks the Confederate ladies since they have the best dresses. So he packs Libby up and they go to Alabama where we meet a kindred spirit in Beau, since he like history too; but he is being haunted by a ghost. Garrett later shows up in connection with reporting on the haunting. I really, really like the combination of history, nerd, humor, and mystery. I liked Libby and Dev’s relationship, they are such good friends and they pick up each others weaknesses. Libby/Garrett were also nice; but the fight was a bit ham-handed and obvious, a bit like Cam/Libby on the first book.
Ready for book three!! Are we going to hit the 20th century – Flappers? Golden age? What’s left of big fashion movements – Victorian perhaps?
