Despite not particularly finding historical romances enjoyable I have to admit that I liked them. Now I've read 'Passing Through Paradise' and I hope Wiggs writes many more conte. Good book B. Mong I have read Summer by the Sea, Fireside, and Passing Through Paradise. I probably will read all of Susan Wiggs' books, the three I've finished have been that good. I'm ready for the first page of The You I Never Knew next. My new favorite author is Susan Wiggs!
