Can I say Wow? Is it too cliché to say Tana French has done it again?  If it is well, I really don’t care because it is true!  French has hit another ball out of the park. In the tv show Castle, the real culprit is surreptitiously brought into question and typically dismissed, only to […]

Review: The Good: I’m typically not a romance novel kind of person, but I’ve always enjoyed reading about women behind the (fill infamous man here) perhaps I would have enjoyed People Magazine if it existed in the early 1900s.
