Seasons’ Greetings, Happy Holidays, Pleasant Solstice, whether that be cool or warm in your part of the world, etc.
As the marvelous graphic so delightfully illustrates:
‘Tis the season after all. Peace on Earth and goodwill to all is a sentiment we can all get behind, whatever our personal beliefs.
Speaking of personal beliefs, I believe I’ve seen enough Christmas romances to last me until next November. I’ve got two more Christmas romance reviews to finish, and then I’m done.

It shouldn’t be possible to see a deal for “Facial/Waxing/Wine tasting” all in one subject. It just looks WRONG. Never mind the day it was “Horseback riding/Chocolate Tour.” My mind went to a horrible, horrible place.
