For Miss Charlotte Windham, the best way to maintain her spinsterhood - and her independence - is a teeny, tiny brush with scandal. She chooses wealthy, handsome upstart Lucas Sherbourne as her unwitting accomplice. He's intelligent, logical, and ambitious. What Charlotte doesn't count on is that one kiss will lead them straight to the altar. Sherbourne has no love for polite society, nor is he keen on being anybody's husband of last resort. He is attracted to Charlotte's boldness, though - and her family's influence. Without a title, he knows he'll never truly be part of their world.

Let me be clear that I have really liked all of Grace Burrowes’ books. The Soldier has a nice storyline but the last half of this book was annoying as relates to the two main characters. Their total lack of understanding with one another was too hard to believe...and they kept sleeping with each other then giving grand farewells for no real reason. I enjoyed The Heir and The Virtuoso but The Soldier was hard to finish.

  • Welcome to the World, Baby Girl

Welcome to the World, Baby Girl! is the funny, serious, and compelling new novel by Fannie Flagg, author of the beloved Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe (and prize-winning co-writer of the classic movie). Once again, Flagg's humor and respect and affection for her characters shine forth. Many inhabit small-town or suburban America. But this time, her heroine is urban: a brainy, beautiful, and ambitious rising star of 1970s television. Dena Nordstrom, pride of the network, is a woman whose future is full of promise, her present rich with complications, and her past marked by mystery.

I read Prayers For Sale as a book club selection. I almost ignored it then I got a text saying "I want to be like Hennie". So I bought the audio book and listened to it while I caught up my ironing and made jam! I felt like I was a part of that time. The story can be a bit predictable, but only because the author makes you wish for what will happen!

Just when she thought she'd seen everything... Detective Lieutenant Anita McElone is one of Harbor Haven's finest. She's also a hard-boiled ghost skeptic. So when she shows up on the doorstep of Alison Kerby's Haunted Guesthouse to ask for supernatural help in solving the murder of her former partner, it's hard to tell which woman is more flabbergasted. But McElone is dead serious, so Alison promises to help in any way she can - even asking her resident ghosts, Paul and Maxie, for help with the case.

I enjoy this series immensely! Amanda Ronconi is so easy to listen to. The books can stand alone but have been fun to read/listen to in order.
