Wikileaks: The Butler Did It

If I wrote a crime novel filled with the kind of twaddle that passes for breathtaking revelation in this week’s blanket Wikileaks coverage, it’d be panned.


Surprise, surprise. The Saudis want America to do a number on Iran, without taking responsibility for it themselves (and meanwhile Saudis are the big funders of al-Qaeda). Sarkozy shouts at his staff. Ghaddafi probably has sex with his blonde “nurse.” Diplomats sometimes say nice things in public about an…

Romantic Wednesday Bethany Pierce Amy Inspired

Amy Inspired is truly an engaging and challenging novel. Where do you sit on the questions that she poses? This is after all a romance novel, one injected with humor, humanity, and the human condition. Here is the

synopsis so maybe you can catch a little flavor of what is in the pages: ”Amy

Gallagher is an aspiring writer who, after countless rejections, has settled

for a career as an English professor in small-town Ohio just to pay the bills.

Roamntic Wednesday Kristen Heitzmann A Rush of Wings

I didn’t know that this was a repackaged version of her 2003 novel. Previous to getting this, I didn’t know much about her, so please excuse me for featuring something old as new. Nonetheless, there are some novels that

stand the test of time, and love, relationships, and broken hearts and seem as

timeless as a Frankie Vallie single. Here is what is going on in the novel,
