Re: The Chocolate Falcon Fraud
I have to say that with a synopsis like that, anyone would be
crazy not to pick up your book!! You definitely have me hooked,
and I'm sorry that I haven't read the prior books in the series!!
I suppose it's never too late to start!! Congratulations on your
latest book, which I'm sure is going to do quite well!! After
reading it, I'm sure you'll get a new fan, and I'll get a chance
to play catch-up!!
