21) To Marry an English Lord by Carol Wallace and Gail MacColl; finished 6/18/15; NF about American heiresses swapping money for British titles a la Cora in Downton Abbey. Lots of information, but this needs a good edit, better organization, and there were way too may typo errors. There was too much repetition and the photos were too small.

22) Summer Sisters by Judy Blume; finished 6/24/15; I'm too old to have read Judy Blume as a kid (my daughter did), so I am enjoying her adult books.

24) Longbourn by Jo Baker; finished 7/18/15; I read Pride and Prejudice way back when, but I am not a Jane Austen super fan. The only other Pride and Prejudice book I read was Death Comes to Pemberley which I did not finish. Longbourn was intriguing because it is the Pride and Prejudice story from the servants' point of view, and of course the servants have their own stories that are told.
