paperback edition of The Twain Shall Meet
was released on February 11, 2017 (TTSM

MY READING TABLE:
I read (and re-read) a handful of books during the
winter months, such as Fogged Inn (book #4 in the
Clambake Mystery Series by Barbara Ross) and Dead to the
Last Drop (book #15 in the
Coffeehouse Mysteries series by Cleo Coyle). My winter re-reads

Trinity by Leon Uris and
The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde.
