My Review This was a really interesting read, unlike anything I have read before.  The author instantly drew me into the time of the events, making me feel as if I were in the story itself.  Set in the time of the Civil War, the story follows the stories of the Randolph’s and the slaves […]

My Review I picked this book up because I love Al Roker, and find him hysterical on Today, so I was interested to see how his humor would show itself in fiction.  Full of pop culture references, including a few self-deprecating references to Roker himself, there was a lot of unexpected humor for a murder […]
