Reviews


Libraries make collection decisions based on book reviews. And, book reviews are an excellent way to thank and author for an enjoyable read.  


My reviews are listed by authors last name. If it's an advance reader copy (ARC ) the actual review page will have further details in the FTC section. I try to connect  readers to a synopsis, my thoughts, and links to the author, or photos from the galley packet. My hope is reader's will find new books to love.
