I was given the opportunity to read Mark Gordon's; The Snail Castle in exchange for my HONEST review. 

Mark Gordon!!
I don't know if this book is in the erotica category on the shelf in the store. But that's how I am filing it. Parts of it made me very horny. I'm just sayin'. Mark has built a story and characters that intersect in such a way. It is suspenseful, intriguing and riveting. I'll read more of Gordon in the future. 

I am very pleased to say. My book group as I call them are the ones that "set me up with mine and Mark's date" Anyway thank you everyone in the group cupcakes and vodka!
Love you girls!
