Book Review – Evidence of the Affair by Taylor Jenkins Reid

October 14, 2018

Evidence of the Affair SHORT (but great) STORY ALERT!! I was surprised (and totally into) the character “POV” with this one.

The Solemn Vow: A love story told from rock bottom SERIOUS MARITAL STRIFE ALERT!!! New-to-me author but I really enjoyed this one!
