    Olivia Kiskey needs a change. She’s been working at the same Nodaway Falls, New York, waffle house since she was a teenager; not a lot of upward mobility there. She’s been in love with Tobias, the cook, for the last four years; he's never made a move. Intent on shaking things up, Olivia puts her house on the market, buys a one-way ticket to Europe, and announces her plans to her friends - but then she meets Davina Granville, a strange and mystical Southern woman....

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    If you are a fan of Molly Harpers books, then you will probably enjoy this one, the story is pretty good and has some of that familiar humor like Harpers books, but just not quite as good..the narrator is as always awsome..

    Vampire bachelor Samson can't get it up anymore. Not even his shrink can help him. That changes when the lovely mortal auditor Delilah tumbles into his arms after a seemingly random attack. Suddenly there's nothing wrong with his hydraulics - that is, as long as Delilah is the woman in his arms. His scruples about taking Delilah to bed vanish when his shrink suggests it's the only way to cure his problem. Thinking all he needs is one night with her, Samson indulges in a night of pleasure and passion.

    Fleur Savagar is the most beautiful woman in the world . . . to everyone but herself. With her oversized hands and paddle-boat feet, her streaky blond hair and funny green eyes, she lives a life filled with secrets that began before she was born. That was when her bewitching mother left home to find James Dean and met Errol Flynn instead. Now Fleur has to grow up quickly, and life won't make that easy.

    The novel starts off great, i love the throw back to old hollywood, the last few hours of the book begin to feel like the story shifts too much to the psyche of the male lead character and the female lead becomes a typical desperate lady left in the lurch for my tastes. Overall i enjoyed this book, i have listened to it twice. But again, the shift in the story in the last few hours just lost my interest.

    Would you try another book from Tina Reber and/or Madeleine Maby?

    I think i would give the author one more try..


    Any additional comments?

    Okay, so the book starts off great, really great, you can see these characters in your minds eye and it is attractive..but as the story moves on I found the female lead to be a bit annoying and pathetic...I did like the story twists although they were not exactly shocking..but to me the book started off hot and ended with a wimper...so i gave it a 3 star rating..not sure if i will buy the next book in this series..

    I really tried to like this book and to get into the "theme", but the accent for male lead was so silly it killed any kind of interest i had in the book..i think i made it about half way through and that was it for me..i honestly just found it all kind of silly..

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    Rose Mae Lolley is a fierce and dirty girl, long-suppressed under flowery skirts and bow-trimmed ballet flats. As "Mrs. Ro Grandee" she's trapped in a marriage that's thick with love and sick with abuse. Her true self has been bound in the chains of marital bliss in rural Texas, letting "Ro" make eggs, iron shirts, and take her punches.

    I truely did not think i was gonna like Rose Mae Lolly, but I do, I love her as much as all of the lead characters in Jackson's books. I recommend reading the earlier book God's In Alabama first, just to get a feel for these characters , it too is a wonderful book. Like all her books, you will be pulled in from the first few lines. Joshilyn's books are a truly sensory experience. Love them :)

The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narrator is not great, not as bad as others have said, but not great..and the writing of the book is not very impressive either, could easily have been writen by a high school kid..


    Could you see Fifty Shades of Grey being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    yes, and i bet the writing would be better..


    Any additional comments?

    i bought this book to see what all the fuss was about, and yes it is seriously dirty, and yes it can be absorbing, but more often than not i found myself just trying to finish what i spent my money no for that reason and no other..
