Countdown to Halloween: Three 5 Star Reviews from John
Just recently, I’ve noticed a lot of talk about a novella called Dear Laura, by Gemma Amor. Being unfamiliar with the author's work, I was unsure of what to expect. What I found, was that Dear Laura was every bit as good as I’ve been led to believe.
