I finished The Dress Lodger by Sheri Holman. It's a piece of historical fiction based in 1700s, cholera-stricken England and has a troubled surgeon and an equally-troubled prostitute as its protagonists.
I don't have much time to go into great detail, so I'll just tell you that once I got a good bite of the plot I couldn't put the book down. Holman's tart, sassy prose keeps you coming back for more and lends new life to writing about this time period.
You should read it.
