    One thought on “Foxglove”

    1. (I received a free copy of this book from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.)When an old friend is murdered, Claire and her husband search for the killerEver since she got married, Claire Breslinsky has dreamed of living in the tree-lined Queens neighborhood where she grew up.
