  2. Cocoa Beach is on my list...and I loved I Found You and The Cutaway. I'm eager to read my copies of the new Karen White book...and The Widow of Wall Street.

    Enjoy your week, and here's mine: “SWEET WILLIAM”

    1. Yes...very descriptive.

      The book is good..just a bit confusing at first until you meet all the characters...all of her books are good.

      Thanks for stopping, The Book Filled Day.
