A while ago, I was caught off guard – not a lot, but just enough…
Are there “Indian Summers” in England? I am not being facetious about this>>> I would really like to know!
I started reading a new Cozy mystery series, which is set in Great Britain, and I was a little surprised to find the “Indian Summer” description for a beautiful autumn day. For some reason, I had always thought this description only applies to North America’s crisp autumn days.
When I read about the beautiful “Indian summer” weather in this British Cozy, I thought about something a site reader from England had written to me. She said that she was quite bothered by non-British authors who set their mystery book series in England and then include things they (the non-English authors) think should be included – stereotypical things – which sound totally wrong to “real” Brits. Of course, since they are stereotypical things that she wrote me about, the rest of us might not know that these things happen “only in the movies.” (I wish I could remember some of the examples she used!)
So, with this in mind, is there such a thing as a British “Indian Summer” day, mate? (I know, I know!!!)
