October 2020 Nostalgia Review Round Up {Stephanie’s Review}

The title of “Maid Mary Anne” confused me a bit. Mary Anne is struggling with the fact that she thinks she’s self-centered. She gets wrapped up in taking care of one older woman and starts letting other things slide.

Wandering around a well maintained […]

Anne from Books of My Heart buddy read Seconds to Live by Melinda Leigh with me in July. We wanted to finish out the series. Honestly I’ll continue to read Leigh’s work. I really enjoyed the pacing and the twists and turns that popped up. Normally I’m fairly good at seeing the villain in the story. Leigh got me with this one. I went for […]
