    I think it’s so cool how you show where you have traveled through reading! What a great idea. Looks like you had a busy month. November was ridiculously busy for me and allowed me to travel to only “one place” – Boise, Idaho! Lol. Hopefully that doesn’t deter you from checking out this wonderful book from Lynda Wolters. It’s called “The Placeholder” and it’s an addictive read about a woman in her 40’s dealing with a divorce, the dating world, and a life-changing diagnosis. I really went into it thinking it was going to be a fun and sexy romance read but there are so many layers to this book! The main character, Sera, is strong and fierce and I love the friendship she has with her boss (who also ends up being her bestie). They have some really funny banter but a true bond you can see from the start. There is love, heartbreak, hope and loss. This book was a tearjerker for sure, but I am so happy I found it. If you wanna check it out here is the author’s website – https://www.lyndawolters.com/
    Hope I get to travel to more places in December (wink wink)

    Lots of time spent in the British Isles I see, Lynne. I just finished Foster and it was amazing. I will have to check out your top two and see if I can find them. Looks like a good reading month for you.

    I was a little confused by the ending of Foster and couldn’t get a good sense of what would happen. Do you have an opinion on the ending?
