You READ – but do you leave REVIEWS?

#BookReview – P.S. I Forgive You – A Broken Legacy by D.G. Kaye #Memoir #Narcissism

#BookReview – THE HOUSEWIFE ASSASSIN’S HANDBOOK by Josie Brown #murder #humour

For me it’s the busiest time of year – competition season is in full swing, so riding, competing, judging and coaching are keeping me manically busy. With the travelling, often by air, and nights in hotels, it does mean I get to do more reading than at other times of year (not so conducive for writing, […]
