Welcome to the BC Awards!!! Carole and I will be sharing some of our favorites of the year! We decided to shake it up a bit with some extra categories!

Love seeing your lists, ladies!

I enjoyed the Ilona Andrews and Carolyn Brown on your list, Carole. I bought the first two Heartstrikers, Blodeuedd. Looks like I need When Dimple Met Rishi since it made both your lists.

Have a happy 2019 full of great new books, Carole!
