Happy reading!

Each of your books is new to me, but I've just started my MM rounds. I hope you enjoy them, Harvee.

I could do a cupcake camp, When she was gone, looks good, enjoy.

Hi Harvee,

I love the cover of 'Going, Going, Gnache', very decadent.

In total contrast, the cover of 'When She Was Gone', is stark, minimalist and to the point. The concept of the story being told through the eyes of several different people is intriguing and I have added this one to my list, just so that I can see how this format works.

Thanks for sharing your finds and have a great week,

Going, Going, Ganache has a fun cover. I could probably use the interview book... it's tough out there trying to find a job!

Looks like some good one. And I love the title "The Homocide Hustle."

Those all look good, especially Going Ganache and the interview one. Happy reading!
