Most debutantes dream of finding a husband. Lady Pandora Ravenel has different plans.

But soon she discovers that her entrepreneurial endeavors have accidentally involved her in a dangerous conspiracy—and only her husband can keep her safe.

May 2020 TBR

Happy Friday! Anyone have exciting plans for the weekend? Maybe 2 walks around your block instead of one? LOL! I hear that more and more places are beginning to open up, but I know there are still a lot of places that are looking at another month at least of quarantine. I know here in Louisiana, people and businesses are just starting to ignore the governor’s laws, though.

My April TBR was almost a complete fail. I’ll hopefully have my April wrap-up post up soon. I have just been such a moody reader this month. And honestly, that’s okay with me! I absolutely LOVE making TBRs because I so enjoy making lists, but I don’t hold myself to them. With my moodiness in mind, I made my May TBR to reflect my current temperament.
