Scotland Devon Nottingham Hmm Anywhere outside of London! Carriages are slow!
I mean I could go on and on. This has been a bugbear for years, but I’ve just finished a contemporary MC romance called Riggs Ruin, I was 2/3s into the book I realised that it was set in London. It showed a total lack of awareness of England, the language used and the weather! I’d love to know when we’ve had that much sunshine, was I mistaken and it was as Sci-fi? Every word above was used, and the way they talked about the Mob being in England and they’re reach was laughable. It also made no attempt to write any description of the location or try and set the scene of an MC in London at all.
I think that a lot of, particularly HR, romance writers, are guilty of using other HR books as their research, so once a mistake appears in a Julia Quinn book it crops in a Eloisa James or Stephanie Lauren’s book. So suddenly they’re all saying a ‘walk around the block’ or mentioning ‘fall leaves’, when if you looked at a map of London, regency or now, you’d see we don’t have blocks.
I read a HR recently that mentioned Cumbria being a 4 hour carriage ride from London, it’s a 5.5 hour drive now, on modern roads in a car!
I doubt this would happen, but I feel like this would be the most fun mount that could be put into the game. I don't think it would have a negative impact like the Longboy did.
Just checking. Always see people sitting right next to the quiet carriage signs chatting, on phone calls, not using headphones, speaker phone etc etc literally every day so I’m assuming the quiet carriage is a relic of the past and no one actually tries to be quiet in these sections of the train?
