Review: Do Unto Others (Jordan Poteet #1)

User Review  - Susan - Goodreads

I loved this book when I read it years ago, but it is rather overstuffed with plot. The author's later books did not seem to be cozy, though he had enough success with them that he probably doesn't regret leaving this genre. Read full review
