NOTE: These “reviews” are as simple as it gets (and mostly for tracking purposes)!

First Thought when Finished: Heirs and Graces by Rhys Bowen was a good edition to this series (which I adore) but it took a bit to long to get to the crime. That being said–Kudos to Rhys to a twist that I just didn’t see coming!
