I’m a sucker for cold cases. Back eons ago (last year) when we had DirecTV, I happily spent hours watching shows about solving long dead cases and putting away criminals who thought they’d gotten away with it.  It’s true – Netflix could support my habit and I do still get my […]

I honestly didn’t think anything could topple Short-Straw Bride from its firmly-entrenched position as my favorite book by award-winning author Karen Witemeyer, but I think A Worthy Pursuit may have done just that.  It’s close though – Short-Straw could still claw its way back up to share the pedestal – but the bottom line […]
