Review + Giveaway: Never Surrender to a Scoundrel by Lily Dalton

Most romances develop in a predictable order: boy meets girl, they fall in love, get married, have babies and live happily ever after. That’s not what happens in Never Surrender to a Scoundrel. Here, everything transpires in a mixed up order and it’s quite a refreshing change.

We meet our hero and heroine during what can only be an exciting time in their lives, each envisioning a much different life.

Review: The Sound of Broken Glass by Deborah Crombie

There are actually three different mysteries presented in The Sound of Broken Glass, but they all blend together seamlessly. The main one, of course, is the case of a respected barrister who is found naked, bound and apparently strangled in a basement hotel room. Was it murder or an accident?

Our second mystery revolves around thirteen year old Andy and his next door neighbor Nadine…
