In 2005 I made the most difficult decision of my life in deciding to end my marriage.
The result is a non-fiction book written from the heart. "The Great Escape; A Girl's Guide to Leaving a Marriage" covers various divorce topics. Social changes to expect, co-parenting, budgeting and tips for hiring a lawyer are all included.

Decades Old Books Promoted as Deals by Famous Authors

I get notifications from Bookbub multiple times daily. This can be annoying. That said, their book recommendations by authors I follow seems to work. As in, I click and often purchase the ebooks that are on sale by an author I adore.

Here's the thing though, the ads do not specify that the book is decades old. For example, a friend loaned me a Debbie McComber novel and I ate it up. I'm a sucker for Read more of this blog post »

Lisa Thomson I spent the afternoon with Mr. and Mrs. Hemingway and the Bulls in Spain, not to mention all their famous gang with many antics. Yes, I'm reading The Paris Wife and thoroughly enjoying it :)
