Hello, welcome back to my book review page, "To read....or not".
This time I'm looking at "Moonlight over Mayfair", the sequel to Anton Du Beke's debut novel, "One Enchanted Evening".
I was surprised by how much I'd wanted
to read this one after I finished reading "One Enchanted Evening". I was really taken with the characters and the way I felt like I was being swept along in the ambience of the era being written about.

Enjoy, and as always, Keep Reading x
