  1. You gotta read the Josephine one first! (Bump it up your list;)

  2. The Josephine B trilogy is a.ma.zing. A must read! I absolutely loved it.



  3. I have been wanting to read Josephine B for a while...looking forward to your review!

  4. I've been wanting to read the Josephine trilogy FOREVER, but just haven't had time! I also got By Fire, By Water - I hope it's as good as the premise sounds!

    Nice mailbox Heather! See you at the O, Juliet events!

  5. I also received BY Fire, By Water... and oh you got the Martha Peake book! You'll have to let me know how you liked it :)
