Greetings to you all. There are lots of new sum-mer reading now available and many of the latest books published. Yes! we have the latest Lee Child.
I have just finished reading
An English Lady in Chinese Turkestan - an absolute gem of a book. Also Fiona McIntosh’s latest book The Champagne War another of her enjoyable stories. For easier reading The Return by Nicholas Sparks is good summer reading.
Come and explore!
