Lora's Rants and Reviews

My own unapologetic opinions on books and writing. I DO NOT accept review requests but only review books I choose to read and I don't post reviews on Amazon. I'm also persnickity about genre and plot.

A Duty to the Dead - Charles Todd

This is really good! One for both the Mystery readers and the history buffs, WWI. At just past halfway the mystery element is getting really intense.


This was one I tried a sample, then bought when it had a price drop. I finally took it off my A-list to read in defiance of my Netgalley backlog. I'm glad I did!
