I don’t tend to review many backlist books, but I plan to review more. So what better to start with than with the first book I read for FaRoFeb? This was a book that I was intrigued by but wasn’t sure I’d like. I’d heard it doesn’t go how you’d expect, and it was available on Kindle Unlimited, so I decided to give it a chance.

I won’t be following any of the bingo boards on the FaRoFeb website, but there are some on there if you do want to!
