Love & Respect

On 2/4 Amanda Moon wrote: The moral of the story is, when you’re upset, trust that your spouse is not trying to make you mad—whatever they are doing or have done, their heart is in the right place.

The Noticer

On 10/12 Amanda Moon wrote: The Noticer is okay. It's not bad, it's not amazingly good. At times it feels like a series of short stories around the the theme of "Jones" rather than a cohesive book about a certain period in Andy's life. The end of the first chapter launches into a resume of Andy's accomplishments in such a way that ... The Noticer Review
