    1. So glad to hear you received those two books.

      The Other Mother was a bit slow at first, but whoa was it good as it continued.

      The Good Neighbors is still trying to draw me in. :)

      Thanks for commenting, Laurel.

  8. THAT'S A LOT OF BOOKS.
    And that's also an interesting way to start a book - sets the scene and tells you a bit about the rebelliousness of the protagonist.
