“Wells is known for historical novels featuring strong, fascinating women.

The WWII history in this one is perfect for Kate Quinn readers, while the Ian Fleming background will appeal to James Bond fans.”

FULL REVIEW 10/28

Will Eric ever call and explain or apologize?

The day of her wedding was actually HER wedding only...no Eric.

Very enjoyable and focuses on family and doing what‘s right for yourself.

You will love the characters - especially Rudy who is featured on the cover.

Not my usual genre, but I laughed out loud at some parts of the book, and I know you will too. 5/5

This book was given to me by the author for an honest review.

THE FORGOTTEN GIRL by Daco Auffenorde - couldn‘t find the book in the data base.

I fell out of a window?

Did someone push me?

Why was I even in that hotel?

Blue has some close calls and had me biting my fingernails at the risks she takes as Ms. Auffenorde keeps you turning the pages to see how it all turns out. 4/5

SamAnne I'm currently reading Surviving Savannah. About a third through and withhold judgement until I get farther in. I'm doing both print and audio, and I think part of my problem is the narrator, who pretty ridiculous southern accents. I start cracking up, because all I can think of is the old Carol Burnett Show skit parodying Gone With the Wind (hasn't aged well in some respects, but the over-the-top southern accents are funny). 4d

The Italian Daughter | Soraya Lane

LOVED IT!!

FULL REVIEW 10/17

My grandmother was a ballerina in La Scala, and I am in Italy making wine? Lily can‘t believe it.

Lily had two clues about her grandmother, but can a recipe for a chocolate dessert and the name of a theater, La Scala Academy, tell her anyhing?

THE ITALIAN DAUGHTER has all the answers for you.

You will cheer and cry along with the characters. 5/5

The Prisoner | B.A. Paris

FULL REVIEW WILL BE ON NOVEMBER 1.

A prisoner…but where?

Is Amelie a prisoner in her own home, in the basement where she is held captive, in her mind, or all three places?

It is a little slow at first, but you will need to continue reading because you HAVE to find out what really is going on and what happens.

Another good one for thriller fans and fans of Ms. Paris. 4/5
