Shocking and compelling! Wonderful performance. Amazing to me that a man could write the thoughts and feelings from a women’s perspective so well. Shocking to me the violence. Want to hurt a mother, I mean truly devastate- well then, there you go.

In this wise, witty, hilarious new novel, we follow the Kettle sisters through their 33rd year, as they struggle to survive their divorced parents' dating each other, their technologically savvy grandmother, a cheating husband, champagne hangovers, and the fabulous, frustrating life of forever being part of a threesome.

Not her best story. Narrator was dry. The story dragged overall. I'm not sure if it was the reader or the story.

Gigi is no longer an innocent teen. All grown up and looking for love, her family and friends worry she'll go for the sexy, alluring vampire instead of a nice, safe human. But sexy and alluring, with a penchant for biting, could be just what Gigi wants...

Keep in mind that these books are meant to be entertaining. That they ALL are. Realistic- not supposed to be. We are talking about vampires in a very humorous way. Just set back and enjoy the snarky, sexy and sometimes hilarious story.

Did I detect a bit of Pat Conroy and Karen White? Why yes- I think I did. Very enjoyable. Worth the time and credit I do believe. My Regards!

After nursing a broken engagement with Jane Austen novels and Absolut, Courtney Stone wakes up and finds herself not in her Los Angeles bedroom, or even in her own body, but inside the bedchamber of a woman in Regency England. Who but an Austen addict like herself could concoct such a fantasy?

Humorous! Not terribly deep, but a pretty good story and well enough written. I was entertained while cleaning house. Orlagh Cassidy read it perfectly. Great characterizations!
