The next time you are looking for a new book – consider picking a romance. They end with optimism (a quality in spotty supply these days.) They come in a wide variety and may include comedy, suspense, paranormal creatures, or historical settings. I’d be pleased if you tried one of mine – search by Ellen Parker under your favorite retailer.
