  • Small town romance.

    By DGray4
    After returning to her home town Francesca reunites with friends from her high schools days. She has a particular attraction to Matt whom she knew in high school. When she discovers his father dead when going home via a short cut and reporting the body to the local Sheriff she vows to help find the killer for her friend Matt. She does and I believe that this is a second chance at love. There is a cliff hanger so you will have to read the second book to see how it turns out. Will review when I finish reading the second book.
  • Honestly Extremely Disappointed

    By Insomuch
    The writing is absolutely terrible and within the first three pages I wanted to throw it across the room. Also just because someone is wearing a piece of clothing that one doesn’t like, that doesn’t mean that they are rude because of it.
