Time for another book review. This new one my Jennifer Moore is set in the Scottish Highlands in the 1800’s. She has written lots of historical romances set in different parts of the British Empire, and I’ve read a lot of her books and always like them. Here’s the blurb for Miss Leslie’s Secret: Continue reading
Time for another blog tour adventure. Pull on your petticoats and grab your spy glasses for this next book.
Wait! Did I hear you say you don’t own a petticoat?
Well, boo. 😦 I guess you’ll have to make due with a bathrobe then and hope you don’t stand out too much.

Time for another book shout-out. When the chance to read and review Simply Anna by Jennifer Moore came, I jumped on it. Everything I’ve read by this author has been amazing. She writes great historical fiction. This romance set on a Jamaican sugar plantation in the 1800’s starts off with a splash…literally. Anna falls overboard in a storm somewhere near Jamaica.
