Envy of Angels – Sin du Jour #1 A slow start to a really good series

And not just any kind of catering. I found out about this series from Tammy’s blog. I wasn’t going to pick up…

Check out on Goodreads Get at Book Depository ★★★★★  5 stars So I’ve just finished this very awesome read that I am dying to put into a review. Like RIGHT NOW. NAO. (It’s the middle of the night.)
