A Courtesan's Guide to Getting Your ManA Courtesan's Guide to Getting Your Man by Celeste Bradley

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Wow... What a book! I was drawn in from page one. I found it to be almost as though I were reading two stories at the same time. That of Ophelia Harrington in the past and of Piper Chase-Pierpont in the present.

The authors did an extraordinary job of intertwining the past with the present. This book was a thrill to read. It was an endearing love story that I would recommend highly to fans of romance.

Tabloid City: A Novel by Pete Hamill

What a refreshing piece of writing? I have never before read anything quite like it. The author Pete Hamill truly has a gift.

The story follows several characters through New York City over the span of twenty-four hours. It was interesting to see how even the characters who don't come in direct contact are still related to or affected by the events that unfold.

I very much enjoyed this unique combination of drama mixed with just the right amount of humor.
