    Loved this book! Recommended it to a friend even by 1/2 thru. Reminds me of a Pippa Croft series I read a few years ago. She very slowly weaves each character into your heart. Then you get to watch 2 very unlikely to fall in love work a holics fall for each other. For both it is a brea...

    I have one issue with this book. And it's not even with the book really, it's with me. It's that I wish that my french was better, so that I understood ALL the phrasing that is interspersed throughout the story, without having to rely on the translation, because that, for me, is a ...

    When you walk into Taverne Toulouse is is immediately evident that it is the dive bar to rival all dive bars, but when you meet the woman running the place you quickly learn that it is much more than that. Monroe maybe pint size, but her attitude is not, she can handle anything or anyo...
