FINISHED SINCE THE LAST UPDATE:
The Lucy Valentine series is my version of a cozy mystery. Reading this book is like wearing your most comfortable pair of pajamas and cuddling with your favorite ratty blanket. The Brkic novel is practically the opposite of the Lucy Valentine novel. More more serious and involving more real life-and-death situations, there is no coziness to be had. It is a stark reminder than revolutions and civil wars still happen every day throughout the world and have lasting consequences on the citizens who live in those countries.
