Knight Blind [Jorja Knight #1], by Alice Bienia

Mysteries with strong female leads seem to be a stable standard of the literature industry by now. I applaud this – in my experience as a reader, a female lead usually means there is a strong emphasis on the mystery part, and that’s just what I want to read when the days are short and […]
