The Bloggers Have Bailed???? 3-10 Dec. 2016

 

Andi and Jove realize that their bloggers seem to have bailed a week early for holiday vay-kay already as the Hootenanny gears up; Andi gets confused; Jove and Andi rave over the late Sarah Dreher’s Stoner McTavish, and both Jove and Andi are already losing their minds over the giant-ass Hootenanny as it looms on the horizon, like some fast-moving cloud filled with peppermint dust, tinsel, elves, and raindeer…

 

3 December: Women and Wordster Erin Saluta did a reader’s perspective on holiday lesfic-themed books.

Wanted Deb Or Alive

by Laurie Moore

Twenty-three-year-old Dainty Prescott‚ indulged society girl‚ TCU graduate‚ WBFD-TV intern and last year’s debutante‚ finally has everything she desires — until an early morning phone call from an international operator sends her life spiraling out of control. Her younger sister Teensy‚ this year’s debutante‚ chartered a plane for Mexico with a friend after the Rubanbleu ball the previous night. Now Teensy’s in critical condition in a Ciudad Juÿrez hospital and her friend is missing. Their taxi turned out to be a gypsy cab — what’s known as the Kidnapping Express — and the Mexican police may be behind it. But before Dainty learns the name of Teensy’s hospital‚ the call gets disconnected.

As Dainty’s odyssey forces her further into the steamy underbelly of a poverty-stricken nation filled with drug smugglers‚ crooked cops‚ serial killers and human traffickers she’s pursued by a relentless man-in-black known as El Mortero — The Undertaker. Can a naïve socialite stay one step ahead of assorted killers and rescue her sister — and other innocent victims — while people are being gunned down all around her? And what does The Ladies’ Guide to Homicide have to do with the rescue?

Book Clips: Roller Girl by Vanessa North

December 7, 2016

Roller Girl

by Vanessa North

Recently divorced Tina Durham is trying to be self-sufficient, but her personal-training career is floundering, her closest friends are swept up in new relationships, and her washing machine has just flooded her kitchen. It’s enough to make a girl cry.

Instead, she calls a plumbing service, and Joanne “Joe Mama” Delario comes to the rescue. Joe is sweet, funny, and good at fixing things. She also sees something special in Tina and invites her to try out for the roller derby team she coaches.

Derby offers Tina an outlet for her frustrations, a chance to excel, and the female friendships she’s never had before. And as Tina starts to thrive at derby, the tension between her and Joe cranks up. Despite their player/coach relationship, they give in to their mutual attraction. Sex in secret is hot, but Tina can’t help but want more.

With work still on the rocks and her relationship in the closet, Tina is forced to reevaluate her life. Can she be content with a secret lover? Or with being dependent on someone else again? It’s time for Tina to tackle her fears, both on and off the track.
