I haven't fallen in love with a character from a book in a long while, but I have now. Miss Molly Gray is such a delight. I gave the book 4 1/2 ⭐ for the simple reason, at the end, Prose added a few pages, I wish she hadn't. The book, to me, would have been a 5⭐. Pick up this book January 4, 2022.

Thanks to Netgalley, the publisher, and Prose for the Kindle Version of the book.

Loved this book. Felt like Randy Travis was sitting on the couch beside me, telling me about his life.

I don't know why I love reading about the Holocaust and all aspects of WWII rather in Europe or Asia, but I do. This book was so good. I rooted for the Rabinowitz family. I cried. I cheered. I hoped. This was so well written and researched.

If you haven't read her, what are you waiting for? Wonderful book. Great writing. Characters well developed. I would have finished this book quicker, but I have been Fall cleaning and haven't read much. Thankfully, done with that, so now I will have more time to read☺️

Love this cozy mystery. Murder, romance, and baking. All good combos. Made me laugh out loud and my husband just looked at me and shook his head. He doesn't read (I know, how crazy not to read 🤷), so he will never understand the concept of reading a book and laughing out loud☺️

A Broken Bone by Melinda Leigh was good. It's a short Novella but her books never disappoint.

Loved this cozy mystery. Perfect month to read as it involves witches, warlocks, fairies, werewolves, vampires and best of all a talking cat. Know I will have to get the rest of the series..that always happens, doesn't it🤷

This was book 7 in the #BookSpin #BookSpinBingo. I really liked the first book: The Hitler Years Triumph, but this second book, I had to DNF. There were missing letters in words on over page! Ugh! I received this ARC from Netgalley.

Ugh, I finally finished this book. I give it 2 ⭐'s. I kept falling asleep reading it. I didn't DNF it bc I actually liked the character. I thought she was funny. It was just boring.

Here's the thing, I have no idea what I just read. It sure is a murder mystery or a psychological thriller. In fact, what the summary of the book says is not even what the book is about. I think one of two things happened: 1) The person that wrote the summary didn't read the book or 2) the person read some other book entirely different from what I read.

Thanks to Goodreads for the Kindle Version of the book.

Finished this book for August #BookSpin tonight, unfortunately a day late. It looks at how the Cold War began.
If you are interested in history, you should read it. It does get bogged down in places, are at least it did for me.

Thanks to Goodreads, Henry Holt Books and Giles Milton for a copy of the book.

Great book, but a tough topic. Sexual abuse and abduction.
McLain did a wonderful job telling it and taking care to tell it.

Anna Hart is a detective trying to come to terms with some things. She goes home to Mecdino where she gets involved in a case.

Thanks to Goodreads, Penguin Random House and McLain for the book.
