Here’s a run down on what we’ll be reading this weekend: CAROLYN This weekend I will still be listening to Fatal Shadows by Josh Lanyon, the first book in the Adrien English mystery romance series.

A Good Excuse to be Bad by Miranda Parker

The first in a new series that introduces us to the sassy Angel Crawford, A Good Excuse to be Bad by Miranda Parker kicks off in dramatic style with a glance at Angel’s day job as a bail recovery agent.
