Review: The Luckiest Lady in London by Sherry Thomas

The Luckiest Lady In London Author: Sherry Thomas Reviewer: Ang Rating: A-, 4 Stars What I’m Talking About: One of the things I love about a Sherry Thomas book is that the author always gives us characters with well-developed back-stories complete with realistic issues, quirks, and intellectual interests.
