Carrie Ardoin Hey Mike,

Thanks for friending me! I am reading your book (just started yesterday), so you can expect a review within a couple weeks or so.

Lynn;
I'm so glad. It's nice to have a recommendation that is well received and doubly nice in that the author is such a nice person.

Lynn Hi Mike,
Just stopping in to say thank you so much for introducting me to Karen Olson's books! I started with the Tattoo Shop series and am loving her!! I can't wait to start on the Annie Seymour (I think that's her name) series (and Shot Girl!). Thanks and happy reading! :-)
Lynn :-)
