Review: A Man to Hold on To

Posted by Ann Roberts at 1:39 PM 0 comments

A Man to Hold on To
A Man to Hold on To by Marilyn Pappano

My rating: 3 of 5 stars



Definitely better than the first book in the series. And has me wondering what will happen with the other characters... Looks like I will probably be back for more action in Tallgrass.
