Book View: The Scorpio Races

Short & Sweet: I've loved all of Maggie's books that I've ready. I heard that this was going to be unlike anything she has written and was excited to see what it was all about.

Is this a budding romance or just a way to distract Isabel from all the sorrow she has had to deal with in the past year. And then Sam and Grace are doing well, only Grace keeps getting sick and she doesn't […]
