2010 book 55

Patricia Wrede and Carolina Stevermer's The Grand Tour
In the second book about cousins Cecilia and Kate, the two are on a grand tour of Europe with their respective husbands, which creates a problem for the storytelling--they can't really write each other letters when they're together. Wrede and Stevermer instead decide to tell the story through one's diary and through a deposition the other is giving, which seems unnecessary really. Still, it's another satisfying historical/magic adventure with very likable characters. B+.
