#FiveBlushReview ~~ The Songbook of Benny Lament by Amy Harmon

Rating: THE SONGBOOK OF BENNY LAMENT by AMY HARMON Tera’s 5 Blush Review It’s never easy to sit down and write and Amy Harmon review because I can’t ever do her books justice.

I think the main reason for that is because I’m not only going to get a well-written, beautifully poetic, amazing character-filled novel, but I’m going to get an entirely unique...

Rating: Release Date: October 16, 2019 Cover Design: MadHat Designs   Louisa’s 5 Blush Review I am not sure I will ever do this book the justice it deserves in this review. First things – If you haven’t read Last Words by Shari J. Ryan – go get it and read it and then IMMEDIATELY get this book and start to read. How beautifully and eloquently Shari J. Ryan gives us Charlie’s story is more than I could have ever asked.  This subject matter is hard to find the beauty but Shari J. Ryan did exactly just that.  The heartache...
