WW Ladies Book Club

Barbara Vey -- January 11th, 2012

It’s been a lovely winter, more like spring actually.  But tomorrow they are predicting snow storms and the perfect excuse to cuddle up with your tbr pile, a throw and a hot drink (preferably with whipped cream).  Time to get some serious reading done and the WW Ladies are here with their reads of the week.

Harvest Hunting by Yasmine Galenorn

Listened to by joysann

Some werewolves have gone missing, including the pregnant sister of one of their friends, so Delilah puts her skills as a private detective to work to find the woman before it is too late. She uncovers a cruelly evil, deadly magic worked by sorcerers to be used in the upcoming demon war. It is no surprise to learn that she, her sisters, and family and friends are all targeted by the agent of the demon general.

The D’Artigo sisters’ lives are complicated, but very magical and intriguing. Each book in the Otherworld series is narrated by one of the three half-human, half-fey women, bringing different perspectives and personal revelations to the ongoing story, keeping it fresh and interesting. Harvest Hunting kept me enthralled for many hours of pleasurable listening. There are a couple of newer books in the series out, so I have some serious catching up to do, and I’m looking forward to it.

Sloan McKinley wants to escape New York and her stifling, overbearing mother that only wants her married to be more popular in their “circles”. Sloan’s best friend Grier, is in Indigo, Alaska after the death of her estranged father, and needs Sloan’s support. Sloan finds herself in the tiny town, that is preparing for the Great Bachelor Competition. That is the last thing she wants. But Walker Montgomery, town lawyer and confirmed bachelor, is turning her head and possibly her heart.

Loved it! Loved it! Loved it!! The first of the Alaskan Nights Series has everything a long, cold winter night could ask for: Adventure, Self-discovery, Love, Friendship, and of course a small town full of RUGGED HOT MEN!! Imagine yourself curled up under a comfy blanket and reading this cozy love story and you will be completely satisfied. I am really looking forward to the next installment of this series!!

The Wild Ways by Tanya Huff

Read by joysann

An indication of her Wild Power, Charlotte “Charlie” Gale has a different kind of magic than the rest of her family, one that allows her to slip through time and space with music and a walk in the Wood. While playing with a Celtic band in Nova Scotia, she sides with the environmentalists against the building of an oil platform that would endanger a seal colony and the selkies that live among them. Wiith her teen-aged cousin Jack, with draconian magic in his own right, she sets about finding a sealskin thief who is using the fae to further the industrialist’s goals.

Tanya Huff introduced the fascinating Gale family in The Enchantment Emporium, and their convoluted relationships, unusual family dynamics and their magic are marvels of imagination. This second book is an exciting continuation, and the likable characters make me want to know more about them, and where they are going. There is much mystery in the Gale family history, and in their magic, and I hope this unfailingly entertaining author is planning to give us more.

    In June 2010, Apple diverted from previous designs with the iPhone 4. Featuring glass front and back, a front and rear camera, and 512 MB RAM, the iPhone 4 met a highly favorable reception. The iPhone 4 is the first iPhone with video conferencing capabilities over Wi-Fi. It runs the A4 Processor just like the iPad. It has 5MP camera with LED flash and shoots full 1:1 720p video at 30 FPS.

    Thanks for revealing your ideas with this blog. In addition, a misconception regarding the financial institutions intentions when talking about foreclosed is that the lender will not getreceive my installments. There is a specific amount of time the bank is going to take payments in some places. If you are very deep in the hole, they will commonly call that you pay that payment in full. However, that doesn’t mean that they will not take any sort of payments at all. When you and the standard bank can find a way to work a little something out, the actual foreclosure course of action may end. However, if you ever continue to neglect payments beneath new plan, the home foreclosure process can pick up exactly where it was left off.

    You really missed the big picture TAXES. There are no tobacco taxes on this product. If the e-cig catches on, there is really no way to add taxes to it without putting all the tobacco taxes on the nicotrol inhaler, too. Big pharm companies will not tolerate this, as their product is a “medicine”. Money always talks. And by the way, the nicotrol inhaler is much more expensive. I quit smoking completely about 4 months ago and cannot tolerate cig smoke anymore. I bought these for my husband so he can smoke in the house no smell at all. They also come with a variety of levels including no nicotine at all. This in itself should help smokers quit. Let’s get rid of the tobacco taxes and all smoke e-cigs no second hand smoke. Wouldn’t that be great?

    Each champion on each role has its own style of play which makes each unique.
    For me this game has tons of replay value since no two games are exactly alike, you can dominate in one game
    and get massacred in another. Udyr, unlike Warwick, can serve as your team’s tank or off-tank even when starting
    in the jungle, making him a different but very powerful tactical choice.
