Review of “The Other Daughter” by Lauren Willig

Last week, I started a free trial of Audible.com and decided to use the opportunity to “read” Willig’s standalone novel.  I love her Pink Carnation novels and since this took place in the 1920’s I was ecstatic.  I don’t know if I built it up in my head since I’d waited so long for it, …
