Actually I just put Tiffany Girl on reserve at the library too! And the Julie Anne Long book was the only one of the winners I read. But I read a lot more of all the nominees, which are listed here: https://www.rwa.org/p/cm/ld/fid=1887
Earls Just Want to Have Fun by Shana Galen was indeed fun. And I read all the Historical Romance Short nominees. All were excellent.
