Book Review: River of Lies by R. M. Greenaway

Book Review: River of Lies by R. M. Greenaway

River of Lies is the fifth book in the BC Blues crime series by R. M. Greenaway. I received the book for free via Netgalley in exchange for a fair review.

When I wore nail polish, it flaked off within minutes, let alone hours, and almost always looked awful.
