The Christmas Surprise
Review of The Christmas Surprise - Jenny Colgan by jules.34

Advantages: A great read
Disadvantages: Can't think of any.

This is the third book in the series about Rosie Hopkins, written by Jenny Colgan. I don't think that you would have to read the books in order as each one gives you plenty of information about what has happened before and fills you in on events that hav ... Read review

I've not rushed out to buy it, but definitely on my radar. How could a student who wants to go into Law say that To Kill a Mockingbird is boring, that's absurd and I wonder if she needs to reconsider her career choice! by LiveMusicLoverLyn
