It Started with Paris by Cathy Kelly

Of course I had to read this book when I saw that one of my absolute favorite authors, Elin Hilderbrand, enjoyed it so much. I have to agree with Elin, I too, "savored every page." The book is highly character driven, which makes for a fast paced read. The only slight fault I would find… Continue reading It Started with Paris by Cathy Kelly

The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

After seeing all the buzz for this book and all the comparisons to Gone Girl, I decided I would give it a try. Then, I was on a hold list forever and that caused me to want to read it even more. Funny how that happens! Well, I finally read it and I'm not entirely… Continue reading The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins
