    I love your Top Ten list, Carrie!! I’ve only read Winning Miss Winthrop. It was a tough choice to not include her in my own list. I’ve heard great things about A Solace of Water and Hidden Among the Stars. Dobson’s books are always favorites. Not sure how I missed reading this one.

    Here’s to a great 2019 reading year! 🙂

    I loved the Potato Peel Pie book. I actually read it in 2017. I have Lady Jane in the top of my TBR list. I’ve heard such good things!!

      Hi Melissa, I think you’ll enjoy Lady Jayne Disappears, and then you can read her next book, Ransomed Fortune. It was very good too!
