Slim series felt like just the series for
me. Now, this is book nine and perhaps it's not wise to
start a series with a book so far Read more...
THE WAGES OF SIN is a historical fiction that has just
the right ingredients for me. We have a strong heroine
with a past that haunts her, a murder mystery and just

brutal this book turned out to be. I was hopeful that it
would not be too romanticized, but I had not expected to
be almost traumatized by it.
The story starts off with Dr. Catherine Bennett having Read more...
I have to admit that I'm quite besotted with this cover.
I like how different it is, the crisscrossing of colorful
squares over the image of the girl and I love the
combination of the colors. Now, you should not choose a
book just because of the cover, but Read more...
