A Creative Week

As the working week draws to a close, I feel a lot has been accomplished this week. I rarely think about things like this, but a post I read on another blog got me thinking! My husband survived his first week of work and he loved it. He’s doing a bricklaying apprenticeship. He already had…

Free until tomorrow!

I was supposed to post this yesterday, but I am a very bad friend! If you’re a lover of crime and detective fiction – you’ll love this!     A village isolated by a severe storm, and a young officer, alone and out of her depth. A troubled priest is brutally murdered, leaving behind a…
