Book Review: What The Wind Knows by Amy Harmon

I know the novelty will wear off, and life will intrude before long. But it is not the newness of her, the newness of us, that has captured me. It is the opposite. It is as if we always were and always will be, as though our love and our lives sprang from the same…

Lately, I have been on a thriller kick. I decided that instead of a crime mystery I would try something else.
