WW Ladies Book Club

Barbara Vey -- March 28th, 2013


Yesterday you all had the chance to name Chris Keelar’s baby.  There were some great suggestions, but here’s what Chris had to say:

Well, first off, I want to say how slightly bizarre it is to have my personal life up on display like this. LOL. That said, Barbara’s been a great friend for a long time–I don’t think she’s old enough to be my mom, sadly–and so it was worth it. I also want to thank all of you for taking the time to weigh in. Liz and I are flattered.

There were a lot of great options. Obviously, I can’t promise I’m going with any of them–especially because Liz isn’t even home at the moment, and she probably wants a bit of input. That said, they’ll go on the list, and here are my favorites (ranked from third place to first, though I think there’s only a prize for first):

Isabelle. I have always liked this name, and Izzy as a nickname.
Minerva. Actually, our top contender at the moment is indeed a goddess, though Greek not Roman.
and…my favorite is…

Musette. I like the name a lot, not least of which because it reminds me of Musica, mistress of the Cosmic Harp (the chick from Robotech), which was a name I liked but that got shot down early. Ah well.

So, thanks again, everyone!

So the winner is Kathleen Nordstrom.  Kathleen, send me your street address to bvey@publishersweekly.com and Boroughs Publishing will send you your prize.

Now here’s the WW Ladies reads this week.



Bite Me, Your Grace by Brooklyn AnnBite Me Your Grace

Read by joysann

Angelica Winthrop defies the conventions of the ton to find a spouse, dreaming of being a famous gothic novelist like Mary Shelley and Dr John Polidori. Polidori’s popular book The Vampyre has put the Lord Vampire of London, Ian Ashton, the Duke of Burnrath, in danger. When Angelica discovers his secret, he convinces her the only course to follow is for them to marry. But their deception of love comes to mean something more to each of them.

It was fun to read about the strong stubborn independent-thinking heroine, a woman before her time. Amusing and romantic, and, to some degree, historically sound, this debut book in Brooklyn Ann’s series just makes me anticipate the next one.




Did You Miss Me? by Karen Rose

Read by Joan

FBI agent Joseph Carter has for long months pined for Baltimore prosecutor Daphne Montgomery, rearranging his work in order to be close to her. He believes he has now missed his chance with her until he is pulled into her life when her son and his girlfriend are kidnapped.

I loved this book! It is a great combination of suspense and an ongoing love story. There are many interesting characters that could be friend or foe. Karen Rose kept me frantically turning the pages all the way to the end.




The Lady Most Willing by Julia Quinn, Eloisa James and Connie Brockway

Read by joysann

After an evening of inebriating festivities in his decrepit castle, an aging Scottish laird leads his retainers in a raid on a neighboring estate to kidnap four young eligible heiresses for his two nephews, titled gentlemen themselves, and surely at least two of the ladies will serve. The women, knowing they are in no danger, mostly want to get where it’s warm ahead of the blizzard. But romance seems contagious, and one union after another makes the adventure worthwhile.

The Lady Most Willing is a lighthearted romantic collaboration by these winning authors, each taking a different couple’s story. In places it’s enchanting, and in others, laugh-out-loud funny. As an easy read that warms and charms the heart, I am recommending it to friends.




The Other Woman by Hank Phillippi RyanThe Other Woman

Read by Heidi

Jane Ryland did the right thing, never revealing her source for her TV news report as an anchor, but at the cost of losing everything. Humiliated, she has become a newspaper reporter, running after every story, to prove herself a legitimate newswoman. Jane finds herself in the middle of a scandal, looking for a mistress of a Senator before a very important election. Detective Jack Brogan has his hands full, with three dead bodies of women who seem to be connected, but Jack knows there is something more. Jack and Jane soon realize their stories are somehow connected and look for the killer, before one of them becomes a victim themselves.

I have heard wonderful things about Hank Phillippi Ryan books, but have never had the opportunity read one, until now. What a book to start off with! My mind kept spinning with the mystery of who the killer was of the dead girls, who the mistress could have been, why was the Senate race so heated, and how will it end? Then, with all the plots, the super twists and turns, I found myself curling my toes through the whole book!! The ending didn’t disappoint either, which makes for a great read!! This will be a wonderful book to cuddle up with during Spring showers on a weekend afternoon.

Bottom Line:  Cabbage Patch dolls always creeped me out, but the picture at the top kind of fits.

    Would anyone who has been a part in the program from the beginning mind sending me copies of your prior letters? I’m signed up now but unfortunately did not hear of the until now. Many, many thanks in advance.

    Cool I knew that ought to have been the appropriate route to say it, that’s how we articulate it in Canada extremely. The US likes to achieve everything discrete Approximating how they’re still via the imperial system,? which I stumble on maddening as it influences our country accordingly a great deal. I’d be thus a lot happier if everybody used the metric system, as a result a large amount further simple.

    The following time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I do know it was my choice to read, but I really thought youd have something fascinating to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about one thing that you can repair if you happen to werent too busy on the lookout for attention. k9uq31s

    fwiw, Turkey asked for NATO to join Turkey in fighting the PKK when (2-3 years ago?) Turkey was sending helo gunships into Iraqi Kurdistan and ‘accidentally’ killing civilians. nNATO declined. n nJust like NATO is declining any formal part in Syria. n nLibya was a NATO-led ‘war’, but Turkey specifically only provided logistical support. It was France and Italy who invoked NATO’s Mutual Defense treaty obligation. n nI am now wondering if Brad Pitt’s new film “World War Z” really is about Israel’s IDF being the only army to take on the Zombie invasion. I have not read the book, but saw a short article on it at Times of Israel. n nOf coursse, even if the IDF saved the entire world, they and the Jews would somehow get blamed for inviting the zombies to earth… n nok, time to read about Putin crushing Chechnya in 1999, partly because the Salafists had erased the historic Sufiism.

    A motivating discussion is worth comment. There’s no doubt that that you need to write more on this subject matter, it might not be a taboo matter but usually people don’t discuss these subjects. To the next! Cheers!!

    Absolute, Apple’s mobile app shop is declared the winner by just a distance. It is a large selection of all kinds connected with purposes instead of a very miserable array of a couple for the purpose of Microsoft zune. Milliseconds features designs, particularly the particular big mmorpgs, although I don’t know I’d would like to guarantee within the long term if this point is important for you. The iPod is known as a far better determination if so.

    An outstanding share! I have just forwarded this onto a friend who was conducting a little research on this. And he actually ordered me breakfast because I discovered it for him… lol. So let me reword this…. Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending time to discuss this subject here on your web page.

    I would like to add that if you do not now have an insurance policy or you do not remain in any group insurance, you might well take advantage of seeking the help of a health broker. Self-employed or people who have medical conditions typically seek the help of any health insurance specialist. Thanks for your writing.

    Onto the other hand, some of often the SB Dunks get released in The hawaiian ahead of start in America. This is a custom built event for fake user’s who clandestinely go the look-alikes easily into the US. Models like Nike Dunk SB Blazer are first released in Europe plus will be encouraged to USA quite a bit later.

    I have observed that over the course of constructing a relationship with real estate entrepreneurs, you’ll be able to get them to understand that, in most real estate deal, a commission rate is paid. Ultimately, FSBO sellers will not “save” the payment. Rather, they try to win the commission by simply doing the agent’s work. In the process, they devote their money as well as time to conduct, as best they’re able to, the jobs of an realtor. Those obligations include getting known the home by way of marketing, offering the home to willing buyers, developing a sense of buyer urgency in order to make prompt an offer, arranging home inspections, dealing with qualification check ups with the financial institution, supervising maintenance tasks, and assisting the closing.

    Thanks for expressing your ideas in this article. The other point is that if a problem comes up with a laptop or computer motherboard, people today should not consider the risk involving repairing it themselves because if it is not done right it can lead to permanent damage to the whole laptop. It is usually safe to approach your dealer of your laptop for any repair of that motherboard. They’ve got technicians who may have an skills in dealing with laptop computer motherboard challenges and can make right diagnosis and accomplish repairs.

    I needed to create you a tiny remark just to say thank you over again for these pretty ideas you’ve shared here. It’s simply pretty open-handed of you to grant openly what exactly some people could have offered for sale as an electronic book to generate some dough for themselves, primarily seeing that you might have tried it in case you wanted. These advice in addition worked to provide a great way to comprehend most people have a similar desire the same as my very own to understand whole lot more around this issue. I am sure there are a lot more enjoyable times in the future for people who looked over your blog post.

    It is my belief that mesothelioma can be the most lethal cancer. It contains unusual properties. The more I look at it the harder I am assured it does not act like a real solid tissue cancer. When mesothelioma is a rogue viral infection, then there is the chance for developing a vaccine along with offering vaccination to asbestos subjected people who are vulnerable to high risk with developing long run asbestos related malignancies. Thanks for discussing your ideas for this important health issue.

  18. Alejandro Heartsill

    Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any tips for rookie blog writers? I’d really appreciate it.

  19. Maxwell Latiolais

    Thanks for the advice on credit repair on this particular web-site. Things i would tell people is always to give up the particular mentality they will buy at this point and fork out later. As being a society we tend to make this happen for many factors. This includes getaways, furniture, as well as items we want. However, you should separate the wants from the needs. When you’re working to fix your credit score make some sacrifices. For example you’ll be able to shop online to save money or you can turn to second hand stores instead of high priced department stores intended for clothing.

  20. Kerry Ellena

    Thanks for the concepts you have discussed here. Furthermore, I believe there are numerous factors that will keep your car insurance premium lower. One is, to bear in mind buying vehicles that are from the good report on car insurance corporations. Cars which are expensive are definitely more at risk of being robbed. Aside from that insurance coverage is also depending on the value of your car or truck, so the more expensive it is, then higher a premium you pay.

    I’d personally also like to say that most people that find themselves with out health insurance are generally students, self-employed and those that are without a job. More than half from the uninsured are under the age of 35. They do not come to feel they are wanting health insurance because they are young plus healthy. Their income is generally spent on housing, food, as well as entertainment. Most people that do go to work either complete or part time are not provided insurance via their work so they get along without because of the rising expense of health insurance in america. Thanks for the thoughts you share through this site.
