    Lacey Terwilliger's shock and humiliation over her husband's philandering prompt her to add some bonus material to Mike's company newsletter: stunning Technicolor descriptions of the special brand of "administrative support" his receptionist gives him. The detailed mass e-mail to Mike's family, friends, and clients blows up in her face, and before one can say "instant urban legend", Lacey has become the pariah of her small Kentucky town and a media punch line....

    Like other Molly Harper books, this one is light and sarcastic and funny. I liked the characters and the dialogue was hilarious. Amanda Ronconi's delivery is excellent.

    I don't know, maybe you have to have been in a situation like hers for this book to really hit home. I liked everything about it, I just didn't love it. Probably a great read for anyone far enough past a cheating SO to look at it with a sense of irony and humor.

    Identical twin boys Zeke and Zach wanted only one gift from Santa this year: a new mom! But convincing their love-wary dad that their music teacher, Miss Davis, was his destiny and part of Santa's plan wasn't as easy as they'd hoped.

    Story

    The narrator was impossible. I thought a nice sweet Christmas romance would be fun while I did some holiday decorating, except that it sounded like it was narrated by a child. There were times that I couldn't shake the mental image of kiddy porn as this childlike voice narrated romantic scenes. Lauren Davis would be fine as the child in an ensemble cast, or to read a children's book, but she doesn't fit the bill for a romance that has any level of sexiness at all.

    Story

    Having major trouble with this book.

    The narrator is slow. My brother commented to me that he takes a beat and a half too long between sentences, and now that I've noticed it, it drives me crazy. The character voices are distinct, but if you believe the narrator, everyone in the book WHINES constantly. Lines that are delivered in anger by strong characters come off as nagging, whimpering, and weak.

    Secondly, the book isn't that well written. I spend a fair portion of my time thinking about all the better ways you could have said this or that. Why take eight words to say something when two would suffice? And then you get to a point where you realize you've heard the exact same conversation between the exact same characters two or three times already. Yes, we get it, now move on!

    And then, there are the people. I find the Fey completely unlikable. We are supposedly presented with a race of warriors but they are the biggest group of cowards I've ever encountered in a work of fantasy. They are constantly going on about how scared they are. Don't these people have any sense of honor or bravery? They've supposedly conquered half the world but they fight like bullies and they die like cowards. I wish that the author had taken some lessons from the Klingons about how a warlike people should behave.

    Despite all this, I am compelled to finish. I have three hours left but gods help me, if we don't see the resolution of Jewel's visions by the end, I am NOT listening to the next book.
