The Bourbon Thief by Tiffany Reisz

The Bourbon Thief by Tiffany Reisz

Witty, Entertaining and Captivating! The Bourbon Thief  is a story within a story and it was the inside saga that captured my fascination as opposed to the mystery of the bourbon thief. “I’m a Kentucky girl,” she said with a graceful shrug. “And bourbon’s like the truth, you know” “How’s that?” “The first taste burns, but once… Read more »

More than one scenario has you wondering who’s responsible for the unnerving drama surrounding single mum Erin Travers, who returns to set up home in Mallee… Read more »

All I Want by Jill Shalvis

All I Want by Jill Shalvis

Love can turn want into need. I started All I Want at 5:30 this morning, with hubby sleeping peacefully beside me. It’s my quiet reading time before I start the day…well it’s normally quiet. The beginning was funny and I was struggling to keep my giggles quiet, which then turned into snorts, which then turned into… Read more »
