    Great lists, ladies. I haven’t compiled my list of favorites, but I agree with Emerald Blaze! And of the two Milla Vane stories released in 2020, my favorite is A Touch of Snow and Stone (I loved both, but this was probably my favorite read of 2020).

  2. I’ve yet to pull my list together but I’m loving seeing others favourites for the year!
    I can’t believe I haven’t read Emerald Blaze yet. I had it pre-ordered so it’s been on my kindle for ages but I’ve been delaying reading it as I like knowing a book that will be a sure-fire hit is waiting for me when I need it, lol. Bit mad, I know…

  3. I love these lists although they only add to my wish list. I can’t wait to read Emerald Blaze. I hope to read The Alice Network this coming year. I love the Maggie Hope series, although I still have a ways to go.

    If I had a list, Addie LaRue would definitely be on it! The Kiss Quotient was on my list back when I read it as well. The rest I haven’t read. I love seeing what others put on their top of the year lists.
