Dreaming Of You/Sonando Contigo

by Lynda Sandoval

Book review

**Since I'm intimately familiar with the blood, sweat, and tears that go into producing a book, I will only be listing my 4-and 5-star reads.We don't all like the same fare (as is evidenced by some of the Goodreads ratings on my own work!), so if I don't love a book, you won't see it on my page.I'm not interested in bashing anyone else's creative efforts or negatively influencing anyone's reading choices.This is PURELY my choice, and how you review is up to you.On with the bio.**
