Monday Book Recommendation

Welcome to Book Recommendation Monday here in the Hidden Library of Michael Cross! I don’t often read novels like The Wedding Date, but after reading an excerpt of Cara Connelly’s work, I knew I had to give it a shot.

But what I did find within the pages of this book were characters filled with life; hopes, dreams and real-life fears. The Wedding Date shines because of its main characters, Julie, a widowed real estate agent,… Read more »
