WRONG SIDE OF FORTY by Jana Deleon
I've been a fan of Jana Deleon's for years, so buying this book was a no-brianer and I wasn't disappointed. Wrong Side of Forty has Ms. Deleon's trademark wit, funky southern small town hijinks, and quirky characters but with a dash of mythology and some really great women. If you're looking for a fun, uplifting women's fiction book, then start right here because while our main character might have spent the last twenty years being a doormat, she's done and fighting back but grace (sort of) and style (lots). Add in some super fun secondary characters and it's the perfect book to spend a few nights with or lose yourself in for the day. Looking forward (as always) to what comes next from this author.
BETWIXT by Darynda Jones
Classic Darynda Jones...which means lots of laugh out loud moments and really great best friend dynamics (and of course, at least one hot guy and lovable pet).
Betwixt was so much fun to read. Plain and simple.
I loved Defiance, her best friend Annette, and her gigi in a box. All three were wonderful, funny, zany women. Put together with a fun story plot, and great secondary characters and you have the perfect mix for a unputdownable read (Classic Darynda Jones).
The story is a fresh, updated, and fun twist on the "Charmed" mythology and since I loved the original show and even the reboot, this hit the sweet spot for me. As did the setting (I mean, what's not to love about Salem, MA!). I don't want to give spoilers away, but Gigi was a hoot and a half. I'm very curious to see where the author takes this series and will definitely be reading the next book in her #PWF series!
