I am so grateful that Stuart Woods is such a prolific writer. He has such great books! Stone and Dino are back, but in this book, they are playing background roles, as Herbie Fisher is finally coming into his own and is growing up and getting things done. Love the dialogue and the fast-paced tempo of yet another awesome Stone Barrington novel.

The Hamptons real estate horror show

The Hamptons real estate horror show 
The Hamptons Real Estate Horror Show by Anonymous Times Two is an entertaining peek into the realtors’ viewpoint of the Hampton real estate market. The vignettes of the different prospective buyers were quite astounding. One buyer wanted top of the line kitchen equipment even as her husband stated “But you don’t cook.” Another potential renter left her baby in the foyer while touring the property. Thanks that the baby turned out to be a doll but I am scared for that woman’s potential real child. Another woman was trying to reclaim her security deposit stating “We left the house in better shape than when we rented it.” A claim the realtor could refute with evidence of a dog unhousebroken. An entertaining and quick read in addition to giving us some insight into how some of those with money behave when it comes to renting real estate.

Guilty Pleasures

From Andrea Payne
Title:  Guilty Pleasures
Author:   Bertrice Small
This is a romance/erotica novel about 4 women who live in a small town and they each discover the “Channel”, a cable channel for women only that allows them to realize their sexual fantasies.  Ironically, each woman’s fantasy seems to take place in another time period (early 1900s) and some of the language to describe the liaisons is very dated.  It was still an interesting read and although the innuendo seemed a little odd at time, it was still a page turner and great summer read.
