My Review The Country of Ice Cream Star came to me almost by accident.  The library on post hosted an event around Valentine’s Day called Blind Date with a Book.  I chose one based on nothing more than a genre and a vague blurb.  And it was unlike anything I’ve ever read. It is a […]

My Review When I was offered the chance to read the ARC of this by Entangled Publishing, I jumped at it!  I’m all about any book that features hockey at any level of the game.  And it is a book that yanked me in from the very first page. There is a lot to love […]
