Behind Every Good Man

Image
  A wronged wife goes toe to toe with her cheating husband at the polls in this hilarious and heart-lifting novel by the bestselling author of Don’t Forget to Write. It’s a doozy of a bad day for Beverly Diamond when she catches her husband, Larry, in a compromising position with his secretary. What’s a DC suburban wife to do with a soon-to-be ex, two young kids, and no degree or financial support in 1962? Beat the louse at his own game, that’s what. Larry runs the Maryland senatorial campaign for the incumbent candidate projected to win against his younger underdog opponent, Michael Landau. But Beverly has the pluck, political savvy, and sheer drive to push Landau’s campaign in a successful new direction, even if he already has a campaign manager who is less than pleased she has inserted herself into the race. Now it’s rival against rival. She and Michael do make a great team…maybe in more ways than one. But with the election heating up, she needs to focus on one thing at a time. If B

Book Review: My Brother's Teammates

  What do you get when you cross a curvy seamstress with three hot hockey players? A pucking disaster. My escape plan seemed foolproof - retreat to my brother's empty apartment after catching my ex with another man. But I stumble into an unexpected complication: his hockey player roommates...and I'm stark naked. Despite my mortifying entrance, and against my better judgment, they’re willing to let me stay but with a few rules: 1. No funny business. 2. No telling the team captain - aka my brother - Harrison. 3. It's temporary until I can find somewhere else to live. At first, the boundaries hold. But simmering tension and close quarters makes resisting temptation harder with each passing day. The simmering tension threatens to combust, blurring the lines we swore not to cross. But how can we go back after crossing that line? And what happens when my brother inevitably finds out? My Review Charlotte sure made a lasting first impression on her new housemates. The angsty build
