    Dear Reader,You’ve probably heard that my wife has left me. Rachel’s pregnant, and she says she can’t handle the stress in our household anymore. My 13-year-old daughter, Jolene, is jealous of her. Maybe it’s my fault. As a widower I spoiled her - Jolene was reading over my shoulder just now and says that’s not true. She claims Rachel ruined everything. But that’s not true. The real question is: How can I get my wife back? I don’t even know where she is. She’s not with Teri Polgar or any of her other friends from the salon.

    The 50 contestants in the Miss Teen Dream pageant thought this was going to be a fun trip to the beach, where they could parade in their state-appropriate costumes and compete in front of the cameras. But sadly, their airplane had another idea, crashing on a desert island and leaving the survivors stranded with little food, little water, and practically no eyeliner. What’s a beauty queen to do? Continue to practice for the talent portion of the program - or wrestle snakes to the ground? Get a perfect tan - or learn to run wild? And what should happen when the sexy pirates show up?

    What disappointed you about Beauty Queens?

    Has a good plot but no context...


    What was most disappointing about Libba Bray’s story?

    the bells and notes... hated them


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    made it through chapter 3 and just stopped... it is way to childlish for me.

    Jodi and Todd are at a bad place in their marriage. Much is at stake, including the affluent life they lead in their beautiful waterfront condo in Chicago, as she, the killer, and he, the victim, rush haplessly toward the main event. He is a committed cheater; she lives and breathes denial. He exists in dual worlds; she likes to settle scores. He decides to play for keeps; she has nothing left to lose. Told in alternating voices, The Silent Wife is about a marriage in the throes of dissolution, a couple headed for catastrophe, concessions that can’t be made, and promises that won’t be kept.

    Emily says: "Good... but not quite like the description..."
    "sooooo slllooowww...."

    With The Look of Love, best-selling author Bella Andre introduces you to a fun and emotional contemporary romance series about the Sullivan family. Because when a Sullivan bad boy falls... he falls hard. And it's forever. Chloe Peterson is having a bad night. A really bad night. The large bruise on her cheek can attest to that. And when her car skids off the side of a wet country road straight into a ditch, she's convinced even the gorgeous guy who rescues her must be too good to be true. Or is he?

    Angelia says: "Great find! Romantic, Sweet with serious Heat!"
    "Not Impressed..."

    What would have made The Look of Love better?

    The story was way to predictable. Needed more to the story plot.


    Would you recommend The Look of Love to your friends? Why or why not?

    No. Just very dull and boring


    What three words best describe Eva Kaminsky’s performance?

    She was good. Strong, pleasant voice. Read very well with lots of emotion.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It was the perfect love story with lots of steamy sex. (just boring) needs more ...drama! LOL!


    Any additional comments?

    I am going to buy the 2nd book in the series to see if it has a better story plot... more of a plot. Hoping that it will redeem the series. If not, then I will be moving on to a new author.
