Summer 2010 is representative of the Year of Soccer City and the FIFA World Cup in South Africa. It has been an amazing month excitement, horns, weird and funny marketing, and controversy.

THE WITCH DOCTOR’S WIFE

After the World Cup, if you want to do a bit of summer reading and enjoy mysteries combined with period history, then Tamar Myers’s entry into historical fiction and thriller style may be for you. I have read it twice already and am starting again.
