CIVIL CAMPAIGN by Bujold bookcover
This is a great stand alone story, but those of you, who like me, have watch the Vorkosigan family since they started will find this book an engaging romp in true Vor fashion.  A Civil Campaign follows the lead of the Little Admiral's many military campaigns -- need I say more?  I give it a very solid 4, on a scale of 5.  I would go higher but LMB keeps getting better and I need some where to go next time.    Please, LMB, kept typing! 

Now, for those who have not had the pleasure of reading the Vorkosigan saga.  LMB has been hiding in sci-fi.  For a real treat, I recommend the family Vorkosigan.  A Civil Campaign is a Catherine Coulter style regency romp set in space on planet Barrayar.  I had my sister who hates sci-fi read this and even she laughed and then demanded to read the rest of the series.  Our hero, Miles has a hard time even getting to his ladylove between Vor Politics, Mark’s butterbugs and the king’s wedding plans.  He does persevere, however, through an ever-widening ring of mishaps and intrigue.   LMB has a deft touch with humor, feelings, and the misadventures of love.  I highly recommend this book!
