Richard and Judy Spring Reads 2019

I always take part in the Richard and Judy book club reads with my sister Beth, from Bibliobeth. On this page I will add a link to the review of the book when I’ve read it, so keep checking back to see my thoughts on the Richard and Judy reads.

For some of these selections, I knew that they wouldn’t be my sort of book, so I didn’t read them. I have linked to Beth’s review as she’s so good and gives everything a try!

    • Richard and Judy are TV presenters over in the UK. They pick books every season which they think people should read and post them on their website. They then review them and people can also join in. 🙂

  1. Thanks Chrissi, I’m working my way through the list too. I really enjoyed The Husband’s Secret and The Last Runaway. I’d also like to mention a couple of other reads that I can recommend too; The first is Reclaim My Heart by D. Fasano. And the other by L. Prather called Eternal Beauty.

    I’m heading over to pick up Heartbreak Hotle now.

    Keep up the good work.
