    Very good – but I was surprised that Marlena’s (Days

    Very good – but I was surprised that Marlena’s (Days of our Lives) possession wasn’t listed. I thought for sure that would be in there!! Otherwise it was a very good short book – well written… I would’ve loved reading more! Great organization and a little of everything. I read it in one sitting – so I hope there will be another book someday!
