Proposing an unofficial buddy read
Houses of Stone - Barbara Michaels

I noticed that Murder By Death has Houses of Stone by Barbara Michaels on her list of reads. I had tons of fun with our Ammie Come Home buddy read two years ago, and thought I would propose a follow-up!

 

Houses of Stone is available on kindle and nook book for $6.99. It's also in print in paperback, and is available on amazon for $7.99, and through the book depository for slightly more at $8.60 (US) for the overseas players.
