i read the prelude to this book and said “wow! wait, what?! why?!”. and this is how things we set on fire by deborah reed became january’s book of the month. booklist ‘s julie trevelyan states “the entanglements of a family burdened with dark secrets, personal motives, and an eventual implosion that still rocks each of their lives to the core quickly surface in the face of this new tragedy, propelling the story and its irresistible characters.” i need to start reading asap so i can figure out the what and the why!
christmas bliss by mary kay andrews was last month’s book of the month. i fell in love with both female characters right away. i liked how both women had obstacles in their lives but they weren’t tragic…it was a wholesome book with a happy ending. i give it ★★★★☆.
