January Newsletter

Hello all!

With the holidays well behind us, now's a good time to catch up on your reading and give your bookshelf some love. We found two must-have books for you this month. The Maid is an engaging whodunnit with an irresistible protagonist, and Black Cake is an excellent story of family, loss, and forgiveness. We loved them both.

Also - January is Debut month for our reading challenge, so both The Maid and Black Cake are debut novels.

Happy reading,

Linda & Andrea
