Book Review: Moriarty

Back from the cottage, and although I didn’t get as much reading done as I had initially hoped, it was still a very productive weekend. I will post my review of Foxcatcher by Mark Schultz tomorrow. But first my review of Moriarty by Anthony Horowitz. I met with my fellow book club members on Thursday…

Cottage Again?

Book Review: Annabel
