  1. Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter sounds good! Haven’t read Judith McNaught books in ages but loved them when I was younger. Maybe I should try this one.
    Enjoy!

    • This will be the first book by McNaught that I read. It was highly recommended by another blogger so I thought I’d give it a try. Goodreads says it was originally published in 1987.

  3. McNaught! I loved this one too! Have you read Whitney my Love????? That is the one historical romance that I’ve read perhaps a hundred times, if not more… I have every one of her books and still reread them when I get a chance.

    Ahhhhhh I can’t wait to hear what you think 🙂

    • PK, great rec of Whitney My Love – adding it to my “look for” list. Really? 100 times?? That has to be good! Actually, that’s kind of like the rec I received for Once and Always 🙂

  6. I received for review Season of Seduction by Jennifer Haymore from The Book Tree.

    Although the widowed Lady Rebecca has sworn off marriage, men are another matter. London’s cold winter nights have her dreaming of warmer pursuits-like finding a lover to satisfy her hungry heart. Someone handsome, discreet, and most importantly as uninterested in marriage as she is. Someone like Jack Fulton.

    A known adventurer and playboy, Jack seems like the perfect choice. There’s just one problem: Jack isn’t interested in an affair. He needs the beautiful, mysterious Lady Rebecca to be his wife. And he doesn’t have much time to persuade her. A secret from Jack’s past is about to surface, and by Christmas Day he’ll be either married to Rebecca or dead.

    I received for review A Very Simple Crime by Grant Jerkins from Berkley Trade.

    A twisting debut novel of murder and dark family secrets from a riveting new voice in crime fiction.

    A murdered woman. A grieving husband. And their son-a mentally handicapped adult with a history of violent outbursts. A very simple case. Or is it?

    Leo Hewitt, an Assistant DA once blamed for setting free a notorious child-killer, is eager to redeem himself with this intimate and grisly crime. As he digs below the surface he discovers more than he ever anticipated-including an emotionally disturbed wife, a husband who’d do anything to escape his disastrous marriage, and an accused young man with no apparent means of defense. But with each shocking new revelation, Leo is only led deeper and deeper into the darkness-an inescapable trap of blood bonds and twisted family secrets.
