Simple and elegant. Miller has a deep appreciation for life and all its aspects. This is a book i will read multiple times. Hand Wash Cold is one to buy, to keep, to reread and to treasure!

Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys
Out of the Easy

bookwoman51, March 17, 2013

This is so much more than a YA title. Out of the Easy took me to 1950s New Orleans and I didn't want to leave. Sepetys created vivid, colorful characters and the story line was quite enough to hold it all together. This book was hugely entertaining and I want more. What is not to like about a house of ill repute run by a madam with a fairy godmother heart, all her "nieces" with their personal quirks, and a teenage girl with a mother you would not want to take home? There's the bookstore, the boyfriends, a mystery, the mob and a black cadillac named Mariah.

Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons by Lorna Landvik
Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons

bookwoman51, December 2, 2012

It's 10 years old... my book group chose it anyway, looking for an easy December read. Well, I'm here to tell you that Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons is many things, but not that.
It all takes place in a neighborhood named Freesia Court over a 30 year period. It's about women, marriage, piano playing in the library, friendship, parenting, Woolworth's coffee dates, competition, trust and love. Enjoyable, absolutely; well-wriiten in so many ways; capturing the experiences of most women I know, while adding laugh-out-loud moments right alongside the need for a box of tissues. If you like to read (duh, you're at powells.com if you're reading this) or are in a book group or are a mother or... any number of possibilities present themselves, you might want to pick this up and settle in for a very good read.

In the Bag by Kate Klise
In the Bag

Highly entertaining! In the Bag is a perfect book for summer. It is a quick read with a different twist on mother-teen daughter relationships and has plenty of laughs. If you're a mother, have a teenager, like to travel or simply want to go somewhere fun for a few hours, this is your book.
