Skipping Christmas

I picked this up as a quick, Christmas-related read, mostly because it was so short I knew I could knock it out in a few hours. If you take it for wha ...more

Degree of Guilt (Christopher Paget, #2)

There’s a blurb on the front of this book that says it’s “compulsively readable”. That’s no lie. Every time I picked up this book, I had a hard time p ...more
