I'm so envious of everyone who hasn't read Arlene Walker's forthcoming novel yet. I wish I could go back and meet her characters all over again. I haven't stopped thinking about their stories yet. Seeds of Deception is easily one of my favorite reads this year.

While historical fiction isn’t it a genre I read often, I found myself drawn into the pages of Seeds of Deception. The characters range the spectrum from good-hearted to callous and you’ll definitely find a villain you’ll love to hate. The story’s historical aspect is one you’ve probably never heard before, which makes Seeds of Deception educational as well as entertaining. The author is also a gifted writer who paints the pages with creative descriptions. I enjoyed it and I’m sure you will too!
