Shoemint Review: Zoe Studded Glitter Heels

Posted by smittenkittenorig on

Oh yes, they are fabulous! My Zoe's arrived in the post the day before
yesterday & as soon as I opened the box, I was in love. They're four
inch heels without the platform (I'm not much for platforms even
though I'm on the shorter side of Hobbits) and so comfortable I can

I was thrilled when Darcy finally showed up & as he was prominently...

Masked Ball at Broxley Manor
Masked Ball at Broxley Manor by Rhys Bowen

My rating: 4 of 5 stars



I am embarking on this series & thought I'd begin with this introductory novella. It was perfect in that it told an intriguing little mystery (who was that masked man that danced with & kissed Georgie?) & gave me enough of a sample of the main character's voice to make me want to know more. I liked the insert of Wallis Simpson &...
