DeBois Series Review

Posted on Updated on

I received this review of my DeBois crime murder mystery series from one of my fans in Des Moines, Iowa.DeBois book set

I promised to write a review about the books I just read.
I just finished reading the five books of the DuBois series
By author Sue Raymond:
It’s a series that involves murder, crime, espionage, love,

It’s also about different areas like, New York and Iowa and the sites around Iowa. I recommend these books to anyone who loves to read.
