Yep, that's another Stephanie Plum book. I didn't hate it, I didn't love it. I'm still reading them for whatever reason. I liked that Grandma had a boyfriend and red hair in this one, but it seems like they were ending that. God forbid anything not s ...more

This wasn't high on my too read list. I loved Room. I also loved Keeping Faith by Jodi Picoult, about a child who develops stigmata and becomes a media sensation. I feel like there is another book I read about a child with a religious miracle, but I ...more
