Today I am super excited to welcome onto the Blog Jo Thomas with her inspiration behind The Honey Farm on the Hill as part of the blog tour! Have any of you yet read The Honey Farm on the Hill?

Investigating the wreckage, he discovers the sole survivor: a woman, heavily pregnant, blindfolded and bound.
