Pretty Baby

Heidi Wood- some might call her a tree-hugger. She recycles, she takes in stray cats, she works for a non-profit and cares deeply about providing resources to people who are leaving other countries to come to America. In other words… Heidi personifies the phrase “Be the change you want to see in the world”.

One day, a cold and rainy day- Heidi sees a teenager with a baby. Something about this teenager keeps Heidi looking- maybe it’s because she can tell the girl is homeless. Maybe it’s because Heidi has such a soft spot for babies- and in general wants to help all the people in the world. Continue reading

Pretty Much Screwed

When Charlotte’s best friend, Lizzy, begins the process of getting a divorce; Charlotte supports Lizzy (while secretly being relieved that she’s not the one having to go on dates, get out there and meet people, reinvent her whole life- while being a mom AND competing with 20 year olds for available me).

Is Charlotte’s marriage perfect? No. Her husband doesn’t listen. She wishes that he would pick presents for her birthday that she wants, instead of things that no woman wants for birthdays (Toasters, anyone?) Charlotte actually finds herself annoyed at her husband fairly frequently. But he’s her husband and she loves him- plus they have the 2 kids. Continue reading

Meet Davis Way- The South’s answer to New Jersey’s Stephanie Plum

 

Hello readers of Traveling With T! If you’ve been sticking around for a while- you know that I like a funny book thrown in amongst my Southern Lit, psychological thrillers, and other reads. I can usually count on Henery Press for tickling my funny bone with LynDee Walker or Phoebe Fox reads- but my original funny girl was Stephanie Plum. Wise-cracking, Jersey-talking, Tastykake loving- Stephanie Plum.

A few months ago, though, I was introduced to someone who might fill my Stephanie Plum quota when I need a funny book- and I’ve already read the latest Plum.

Meet Davis Way- the heroine of the Davis Way Crime Capers by Gretchen Archer. Davis from Alabama, has an ex-ex husband and is always finding herself in some kind of trouble (usually trouble that will make the reader laugh!) Continue reading
