Cindy Gerard kicks off another Cattlemans Club series "The Secret Diary" with the very entertaining "Black-Tie Seduction." This book has some one-liners that made me laugh out loud. Ms. Gerard really developed her characters well. Cant wait to read the rest in this series; hope the other books have as much laughter, lovin, and mystery.
