This week I’m featuring:
“It was unbecoming to be jealous of a dear friend’s marriage.”
I have been looking forward to reading this one since I first heard about it! I have heard that it can be pretty dark, but that hasn’t turned me off of it. Shannon McNear is an excellent writer and I always get lost in her books!
