Book Review: Forget You Know Me by Jessica Strawser

With this third novel by Strawser, I’m removing her from my must read authors list. In my opinion, each of her works has gotten progressively worse. Perhaps it’s just this reader getting picker about what grabs her? Continue reading “Book Review: Forget You Know Me by Jessica Strawser”

Book Review: Her One Mistake by Heidi Perks
