BLOG BLITZ REVIEW – The Feud by Amanda James

Another book set in a village (we all know how much I love those)!

I Owe You One by Sophie Kinsella

I've always been a Sophie Kinsella fan. You can always rely on her for a light, amusing read with a main character who gets herself into a bit of a mess, but who manages to come right in the end. I Owe You One doesn't really stray from that theme, but for some reason, I... Continue Reading →
