“Reading this made me joyful!”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Melissa Tumaneng
The characters draw you in where you don’t want to put down the book. Then a nice surprise at the end, one where I found myself cheering on the main character saying- you go girl … own it! And she did! Looking forward to future books by Wendy Ledger.
