Description

Meet the Naughty Princess Club: a brand new series from USA Today bestselling author Tara Sivec that introduces readers to Fairytale Lane and the hilarity—and romance—that ensue when three women start a new business to make it rain.

 

 

 

 

Once upon a time Cynthia was the perfect housewife. Betwee

 

n being the President of the PTA and keeping her home spotless without a hair (or her pearls) out of place, her life was a dream come true. Her husband was once her knight in shining armor, but now he’s run off with all their money…and the babysitter.

 

Dressed as a princess at the annual Halloween block party on Fairytale Lane, she meets two other “princesses” also facing money troubles: antique store owner Ariel and librarian Isabelle. When the women are invited to wear their costumes to a party where they’re mistaken for strippers, Cindy, Ariel, and Belle realize that a career change could be the best way to make their money problems go bippity-boppity-boo.

 

But can structured Cindy approach a stripper pole without sanitizing wipes? And could the blue-eyed anti-prince that has been crossing her path become Cindy’s happily ever after? At the Stroke of Midnight is a hilarious, empowering story where princesses can save themselves while slaying in stilettos.

Excerpt

Closing my eyes, I take a few deep, calming breaths as I stand behind a black velvet curtain in the dimly lit backstage area. An erotic song that I don’t recognize plays through the club on the other side of the curtain, the heavy, thumping bass from the music vibrating through my body.

“You can do this. It’s just like you’ve been practicing. Close your eyes and pretend you’re just dancing in your bedroom,” I whisper to myself.

“Do you normally have over a hundred complete strangers in your bedroom watching you take your clothes off while dancing to a horrible ’80s song?”

My pep talk is interrupted and my eyes fly open to find my friend, Ariel standing next to me backstage. It still feels weird to call her my friend, considering a few months ago I had no desire to ever speak to her, let alone get to know her. But, she’s one of the reasons I’m standing here right now, getting ready to do something I never thought I’d do. Sure, it’s an unusual way to make your dreams come true, but everyone has to start somewhere.

“I took your advice and chose another song. But just so you know, ‘Eternal Flame’ by the Bangles is not a horrible eighties song. ‘Is this burning, an eternal flame’ is a beautiful and passionate lyric,” I argue with her, my voice rising to be heard over the catcalls, whistling, and clapping happening on the other side of the curtain, as the woman who went on before me finishes up her performance.

“If it’s burning eternally, it’s probably chlamydia,” Ariel deadpans.

“Is this your idea of pep talk?”

“Do you need a pep talk?” Ariel questions, with a confused look on her face.

“Have we met?!” I shout hysterically. “Do you think this is something I’m a hundred percent confident about right now? I feel sick. Maybe this wasn’t a good idea. I don’t think I’ve had enough practice.”

I start to back away from the curtain when she reaches out and grabs my arm to stop me from running as fast as I can off this stage and out of this club.

“You’ve had enough practice. You finally let your hair down, literally and figuratively,” she reminds me as I tentatively run my fingers through my long blond hair, which she recently convinced me to put caramel highlights in and which has been curled and teased and hangs around my shoulders and halfway down my back. “This is where your future begins, babe. Right here. On this stage. This is where you take back your life and give a giant fuck you to that dipshit of an ex-husband. And that hot piece of man meat out there in the audience who has no idea what’s about to hit him.”

My eyes start to burn as they fill with tears, and I quickly blink them back before they ruin the perfect cat-eye eyeliner and false lashes she applied for me in the dressing room an hour ago.

“That was the sweetest thing you’ve ever said to me,” I tell her with a sniffle.

“Just think: Instead of having that giant pole up your ass, you’ll have it in the palm of your hands and be swinging on it in about forty-five seconds,” she says with a smirk.

“And then you go and completely ruin it,” I mutter with a shake of my head, taking another deep breath and turning away from her to face the curtains again.

“You’ll be fine. It’s two minutes and thirty-five seconds of your life. It will be over before you know it,” she reassures me with a pat on the back.

“I need my Clorox wipes,” I mumble nervously, bringing one hand up to my mouth and chewing nervously on my thumbnail.

She smacks my hand away and rolls her eyes.

“You do not need your Clorox wipes. That pole is clean. Ish. You know what? Don’t think about the pole and all the vaginas that have spun on it before you tonight. Think about how freeing this will be. Think about your business. Our business. Think about being independent and paying your own bills and banging the hot-as-balls man out in the audience who will most likely lose his shit when he sees you walk out on that stage,” she says with a wag of her eyebrows.

 

“I’m not going to . . . do that with him,” I reply indignantly, even though just the thought of being naked in a bed with that man makes me feel all warm and tingly.

“For fuck’s sake, you can say the word bang. God will not kill a kitten if you say the word bang. And you’re totally going to bang that man like a screen door in a hurricane. Especially when he sees you in this outfit,” she states, looking me up and down. “Well, the outfit you have on underneath that thing.”

I take a second to look down at myself and smile. He told me to never, ever wear this costume again, and I did it just to irritate him. And to see the look on his face when I take it off. I’m not the prude he thinks I am. I can change. I can be sexy and outgoing and do something completely outrageous and not in my comfort zone.

“I can do this,” I state with a nod of my head.

“Hell yeah you can!” Ariel cheers, bumping her shoulder against mine. “Just don’t trip and fall on your face in those ridiculously high heels. Biting it and smacking your face onto the stage is not hot.”

I glare at her, and she holds her hands up and begins backing away.

“You’ve got this. Shake your ass and make momma some money!” she shouts before disappearing around a corner to go out into the audience and cheer me on.

“Let’s give a great big round of applause to Tiffany! We’ve got an extra-special treat for you next. Get your dollar bills ready, folks. Straight from the castle, looking for her very own Prince Charming, is the hottest princess you’ll ever meet! Put your hands together for Cinderella!”

Letting out a long, slow breath, I grab onto the velvet curtain and yank it open, pasting a smile on my face and ignoring the butterflies flapping around in my stomach as I make my way on stage.

I can do this.

I’m going to go out there and show everyone that it’s possible for a housewife to make something of herself. Even if she has to make it by being a stripper.

Review: At the Stroke of Midnight by Tara Sivec

Today, I get to bring to you one of my favorite authors.  Her unique humor, unfiltered way of writing and natural story telling makes me love every book I read by her.   Tara Sivec’s newest series, The Naughty Princess Club, goes back to her hilarious dialogue like that in her Chocolate lovers series.  I guarentee with this one book you will become a fan as I am.  Keep reading after the blurb for my full review.

Sivec_StrokeofMidnight_finalBook Blurb:

Meet the Naughty Princess Club: a brand new series from USA Today bestselling author Tara Sivec that introduces readers to Fairytale Lane and the hilarity—and romance—that ensue when three women start a new business to make it rain.

Once upon a time Cynthia was the perfect housewife. Between being the President of the PTA and keeping her home spotless without a hair (or her pearls) out of place, her life was a dream come true. Her husband was once her knight in shining armor, but now he’s run off with all their money…and the babysitter.

Dressed as a princess at the annual Halloween block party on Fairytale Lane, she meets two other “princesses” also facing money troubles: antique store owner Ariel and librarian Isabelle. When the women are invited to wear their costumes to a party where they’re mistaken for strippers, Cindy, Ariel, and Belle realize that a career change could be the best way to make their money problems go bippity-boppity-boo.

But can structured Cindy approach a stripper pole without sanitizing wipes? And could the blue-eyed anti-prince that has been crossing her path become Cindy’s happily ever after? At the Stroke of Midnight is a hilarious, empowering story where princesses can save themselves while slaying in stilettos.

Review:

Cindy is the picture perfect housewife and PTA mom.  Unfortunately, this is only a facade.  She is barely holding onto her house, her sanity and her daughter.  She knows she needs to get a job and soon.  When she meets Ariel in a very memorable way the two develop a very unique friendship and business plan.  What Cindy doesn’t account for is PJ.  His sexiness is overwhelming.  What really appalls her is that he is an owner of a strip club.  How could she possibly be involved in that kind of life?  When you are really down and out is when you discover who you are and what you’re made of.

This is already my favorite book of the year.  Cindy, Ariel and Belle had me laughing outloud like I was a lunatic.  They are relatable characters that really have no filters and really don’t care.  Tara Sivec writes humor and romance like no other author.  The Naughty Princess Club is definitely going to be the new thing women want to do.  Instead of book clubs its going to be strip clubs (pun intended).  Not only is the dialogue fantastic but the character development is up there with the best of dramas.  Seeing Cindy become who she becomes is amazing.  Not to mention the very sexy PJ and their sexy times make kindles steam up.  If you haven’t picked up a Tara Sivec book,  you need to start with this one.

Blurb:
How much can a man take before he breaks?

1,843 days. That’s how long I survived in that hellhole. They tried to break me, but I resisted. And I owe it all to the memory of warm summer nights, the scent of peaches, and the one woman who loved me more than I ever deserved to be loved. Now, I’ll do anything to get back to her.

Only Shelby Eubanks isn’t the girl I left behind all those years ago. She’s someone else, a stranger. My Shelby-my little green-eyed firecracker-would never give up her dreams, would never disappear into her mother’s ambitions. But I won’t give up on her. On us. I may be broken, and scarred, and not the man I used to be, but I will do whatever it takes to remind her of the story of us.

Review: Below Deck by Tara Sivec

As most of you know by now I have a huge fan of Tara Sivec.  I have been privileged enough to now be on her reviewers list.  You will get to see all her stuff before it comes out.  So today, I get to bring to you her newest book, Below Deck.  You will love the humor, sexy talk and an addictive story that will have you turned the page faster to see what happens next.  For my full review keep reading after the book blurb.

33226657Book Blurb:

Declan McGillis can’t stand rich people. But working as a deckhand on a luxury charter yacht, he also can’t escape them. Declan has spent years kissing their ass and doing their bidding…whatever it takes to make his dreams come true, and nothing will get in his way of being the captain of his own yacht one day.

Mackenzie Armstrong knows what people think when they look at her. She knows from the outside looking in, it seems like her family has it all and doesn’t have a care in the world. Things aren’t always what they seem, and not only does Mackenzie have the weight of her family’s struggles on her shoulders, she also needs to prove to Declan that she’s not the spoiled princess he believes her to be.

Declan can’t ignore the sparks of lust between them, even though Mackenzie is completely off limits and absolutely out of his league.

Mackenzie thinks a vacation fling is just what she needs to forget about the mess her life has become, and Declan is the perfect man for the job.

Will this be a quick romp in the water, or will it turn into something more when Mackenzie finally gets below Deck?

Review:

Declan is just buying his time until he can pass his captain’s exam and run his own ship.  He doesn’t need any distractions.  What he doesn’t count on is the weatlhy Mackenzie to step aboard his ship.  Figuring she is just another trust fund princess he tries to push her and his attraction to her away.  But, when their attraction over comes them both can they overcome their misconceptions and find happiness with each other?

I love Tara Sivec books.  They always seem to end too quickly.  Like most of her characters they mostly have no filter and you instantly love them for their cander.  the love story between Declan and Mackenzie is part Pride and Prejudice and part steamy erotic novel of your choice.  The story is fantastic and quite relatable.  I think anyone reading this will want to go on a yacht just to meet a very sexy deckhand or captain or chef.  The setting is gorgeous and will have you going on travelocity to see how much a Caribbean trip will be.  Overall, when you pick this book up you will not put it down til the very end.  I can’t wait for the next wonderful Tara Sivec book to come out.

Happy Release Day for Baking and Babies by Tara Sivec

Today is finally the day we have been leading up to.  Baking and Babies by Tara Sivec is the final entry in the Chocoholics series.  This book is a fine finish with all the laughs and feels that have come with both the Chocolate Lovers and Chocoholics series’.  For my full review keep reading after the book blurb.  With this book you will be having a great start to your weekend!  If you haven’t picked up any of these you truly are missing out!

untitledBook Blurb:

“I’m pregnant.”

Molly Gilmore had a good life before she uttered those two stupid words. While preparing to graduate from culinary school and building up the courage to make a move on her hot, sugar-cookie-smelling pastry instructor Marco, she can’t wait to finally have the GREAT life she’s always dreamed about, instead of just the good one she’s been living.

Always known as the quiet ninja, she fully intends to stay hidden in the shadows with her nut-job family, so they have no chance to embarrass her around the man she’s crushed on for two years. Unfortunately, her family has other plans. When they yank her straight out of her comfort zone, she finds herself starring in the craziest train wreck she’s ever witnessed.

Molly ultimately gets a more exciting life that doesn’t revolve around school, but she’s pretty sure the man of her dreams won’t be sticking around long after her family gets ahold of him. There aren’t too many guys who can handle smelling like pee, having the whole world know how he masturbates, and being forced to eat an entire bag of dicks.

Join the Chocolate Lovers and Chocoholics gang for one final story about love, baked goods, making poor life choices, and remembering how important family is—even if they drive you insane.

Mostly because it’s illegal to kill them.

Review:

Molly has always managed to be the quiet one around her crazy family.  When she finally graduates from culinary school she is finally free to go after the one man she has been wanting to be with for the past two years.  That is until she volunteers to say she is pregnant for one of her sisters.  When Marco, her crush, over hears he volunteers to pretend to be the baby daddy.  Through this complicated charade Marco and Molly get closer and really learn things about each other and each other’s crazy families.  Learning everything from Marco’s masturbation habits, what meat sweats are and why Drew is taking a dump in the bushes.  Can Marco and Molly navigate the crazy or will it tear them apart?

I really loved Marco and Molly’s story.  I think it took all the crazy and wrapped it up in one awesome story.  I think the fact that they both had crazy families was fantastic.  Marco was the first true outsider entering the inner circle of this family.  His character fit so well it was as if he was meant to be there.  Marco’s relationship with the guys really was probably the cherry on top.  Not to mention the masturbating meerkat, puke on a penis and a ganga growing grandma.  That’s just a taste of the awesomeness of this story.  You are guaranteed to laugh out loud and possibly have a few tears at the fact that this is the last one.

Release Day Party:
I’ll be having a party all day on Friday to celebrate the release with several giveaways, including a Kindle Fire, special Baking & Babies swag, etc. This will take place on my Facebook Author Page so if you could direct people there, that would be great: https://www.facebook.com/TaraSivec.authorpage

Day Six of Chocolate Lovers and Chocoholics Celebration

Today is the last day before the release of Baking and BabiesTattoos and Tatas  is a novella in the Chocolate Lovers and Chocoholic series. This is a book that tests the friendship between Claire and Liz.  What happens when the unexpected makes you question everything in your life?  For my full review keep reading after the book blurb.

22728057Book Blurb:

During the month of October, 100% of the proceeds from Tattoos and Tatas will be donated to breast cancer awareness.

Claire and Liz have always had a friendship that defied the test of time, but when one of them is diagnosed with a disease that every woman fears, their bond is put through the wringer. How do you cope knowing your soul mate could be taken from you?

Filled with memories of their life long friendship, inappropriate behavior, bad tattoos and shaving cats, the two friends will realize that laughter really is the best medicine.

Tattoos and TaTas is not your typical love story; it’s a story of friendship and learning how to let go when something is beyond your control.

Review:

Claire and Liz have been friends since high school.  They have been through thick and thin.  All the challenges of marriage, children, their business and everything in between.  But, nothing prepares them for the big C.  This will test them more than anything.  As they work through the trials of the present, the past will be remembered.  As with all of their trials they will be met with tears, laughter and lots of inappropriate comments.

This story really hit home for me.  I have experience with the big C and know how tough all of this is.  I think this really attacks a sensitive subject with respect and humor.  It addresses how people handle things differently especially when they cant control the outcome.  I did cry at times but most of all I laughed out loud.  I loved how in the end everyone came together and were just there.  It truly shows the strength of friendship and the love between friends.  In the heart of all of these books are the friendships and how important they are.

Day Five of the Chocolate Lovers and Chocoholics Celebration

Today we get to celebrate with the second book in the Chocoholics series, Passion and Ponies.   This is one of the most fun books that Tara Sivec has written.  She explored the world of Bronies and brought into a world where most differences have the chance of being pointed out and laughed at.  That doesn’t happen…well it doesn’t happen much.  For my full review keep reading after the book blurb.

20642915Book Blurb:

Ava Gilmore has the perfect life. She’s surrounded by people who love her, she’s having sex on a regular basis and her Coach bag collection just grew by three. The problem? She’s expected to follow in her family’s footsteps at Seduction and Snacks, working with sex toys and baked goods.

Ava loves vibrators and cupcakes as much as the next person, she’d just rather play with them than sell them. With her shopping addiction reaching an all time high and her credit card bills piling up, Ava decides to put her obsession to good use and start a fashion blog. But she has one other problem – the guy she’s having sex with has a My Little Pony addiction.

While dealing with her family’s disappointment and confusion over her choices, she finds support in the unlikeliest of places – Tyler Branson. Tyler has slowly wormed his way into her bed, her a$$ and her heart and he refuses to leave. Tyler has his own family problems to deal with and for the first time ever, Ava finds herself feeling bad for the annoying, immature guy and chanting “Friendship is magic!” during the sex she’d swore to stop having with him.

Review:

Ava’s fling with Tyler was only supposed to be just that.  How could she want to be with a man obsessed with animated ponies?  Aside from her confusion with Tyler she is having a major crisis with her job.  She works for her mom’s company but hates it.  So, between her figuring out what she really wants to do, having hot sex with Tyler and trying to figure out their crazy relationship she is one busy girl.  Soon things change, when Tyler is given some life altering information she finds herself being the one to comfort him and she wouldn’t want it any other way.  Can Ava and Tyler find a way to balance each other’s needs or will it fall apart?

I really loved seeing Ava and Tyler’s relationship grow.  It was a really fun part of Gavin’s story but it really grew into something great.  You really saw how they brought the best out of each other.  I know this sounds a lot sappier than the other books but it certainly isn’t.  All the humor of the rest of the books is found in this.  In fact, Tyler is a lot like Drew.  You would almost think they shared one brain.  Along with the requisite humor is some really steamy sex including accidental anal (don’t worry you’ll understand)  and MLP dress up.  This was definitely one of the most unique books in either of the series’.  You will love the mix of laughter and heart.

Day Four of the Chocolate Lovers and Chocoholics Celebration

Today we are celebrating with the first in the Chocoholics series, Love & Lists.  This is the first in the spinoff from the Chocolate Lovers series.  We get to see how Claire, Carter, Liz, Jim, Jenny and Drew’s kids have grown up.  This book focuses on Gavin and Charlotte.  The two have grown up together but never had the guts to tell each other how they feel.  For my full review keep reading after the book blurb.  Be sure to come back tomorrow for more Chocoholics!

18300604Book Blurb:

Twenty-five-year-old Gavin Ellis has always had the love and support of his family ever since he was a little boy and couldn’t stop talking about his penis. He’s also always had their unsolicited advice and uncanny knack of embarrassing him at all costs. Now that he’s an adult and trying to convince the love of his life to love him back, things haven’t changed very much from when he was younger.

When Gavin’s best friend Tyler suggests he make a to-do list of items that will ensure he wins the girl, Gavin is one-hundred-percent on board: after a few six packs.

After puking in the shrubs, a bad experience with Viagra, a Sex-Ed course gone wrong, and a slew of other mishaps courtesy of his family and friends, Gavin is pretty sure this list will be the death of him.

Sometimes, trying to make someone love you with a list isn’t always the best idea. Especially when “Show her your penis” is the first “to-do” item

Review:

Gavin, the little boy who couldn’t stop cursing and talking about his penis, has grown up and become very successful working for his mom and Aunt Liz’s company.  The one thing missing in his life is love.  His heart has always belonged to Charlotte, his Aunt Liz and Uncle Jim’s daughter.  Gavin and his friend, Tyler, decide that he is going to make a list and make Charlotte fall in love with him.  The list goes from buying her lingerie, showing her his penis and many other inappropriate things that Tyler insists upon.  Gavin soon learns that the best things happen once the list is thrown out the window and his way too open best friend is ignored.

I loved this book.  It is reminiscent to the first Seduction and Snacks book.  Gavin though different from his parents still has the same pinache as a combination of Claire and Carter.  The love story between Charlotte and Gavin is very sweet.  Well, not just sweet but also pretty awkward at times.  This is especially true when Charlotte decides to seduce Gavin with mustard.  Its hilarious but sweet too.  One of the best parts of this book is the introduction of Charlotte, her sisters and Tyler.  I couldn’t ask for better supporting characters that fit so well in a world built on inappropriate sharing, sex toys and naked times that should never be shared.  This was a great addition to the Chocolate Lovers world.

Day Three of Chocolate Lovers and Chocoholics Celebration

Today we are celebrating with the third book in the Chocolate Lovers series, Troubles and Treats.  This book centers around Jenny and Drew.  Throughout their relationship the one department they have never had trouble in is the bedroom.  Now that they have two kids that has changed.  All Drew wants is his old sex kitten of a wife back and all Jenny wants is some sleep.  For my full review keep reading after the book blurb.  Have an awesome week ahead and be sure to keep coming back because we will have plenty more for our celebration.

23016369Book Blurb:

Drew and Jenny have spent years being the envy of their friends with their out of control sex lives – well, not really. Mostly it makes their friends want to throw up in their mouths a little.

With two little kids and two busy lives, for the first time, Drew and Jenny aren’t on the same page in the bedroom. Drew will stop at nothing to get his previously amorous wife back in the sack, and Jenny will do anything for a full night of sleep.

Carter and Claire, and Jim and Liz are their usual (un)helpful selves and are full of advice for the discontented duo, wanting nothing more than to help restore order to the usually happy couple’s lives.

In the third and final installment of the Chocolate Lovers Series, will Drew and Jenny find the spark that’s been missing in their marriage, or will the trouble they’re having cause a stickier situation than the time Jenny poured honey all over Drew and he fused himself to a tree?

Review:

Drew and Jenny’s crazy sex life has become non-existent since their second child was born.  Drew is determined to remind Jenny what they were like and go back to it.  Jenny just wants sleep and some help around the house.  When they go to their friends for help they offer advice but most of it is unhelpful for the couple who has done it all and a lot more in and out of the bedroom.  Can Drew finally get the point and help Jenny and will Jenny be able to find her way back to their very non-vanilla sex?

I love Drew and Jenny.  All of the characters in this series are unique and quite awesome, but Drew and Jenny take the cake.  With their outlandish stories, inappropriate behavior and Jenny’s inability to know most of the English language puts them in a category all to themselves.  I found that this book brought them to a more relatable level.  Most people aren’t going to have the sex that they have but in this book the issues the married with children couple have are incredibly relatable and common.  I loved how that though their issues became attainable it didn’t change how they approached things.  They were still the same old crazy Drew and Jenny.  This is another laugh out loud story that just makes me want to take Tara Sivec out to a bar and have outlandish conversations with her.

Day Two of our Celebration for Chocolate Lovers and Chocoholics!

Day Two of our countdown is a review of the second book in the Chocolate Lovers series, Futures and Frostings.  This is a continuation of Claire and Carters new life together.  We dive further into their crazy life full of their wacky friends, inappropriate son and full of insults that make fun of anyone.  For my full review keep reading after the book blurb.  Have a fantastic Sunday!

23016364Book Blurb:

Carter, Claire and Gavin have formed the perfect little family. Their friends are getting married and everyone is growing up, maturing and ready to face the future. Or are they?

From bachelorette party hell, porn addictions, dinner roll baseball and botched wedding proposals to finding out everyone’s extended family is chock full of crazy, Carter and Claire begin to question the strength of the ties that bind them. Unfortunately, these ties have nothing to do with fuzzy handcuffs and everything to do with the mounting differences between them.

Will their friends make a mess of things with their inappropriate comments and need to know everything, or will they convince the couple that happily-ever-after sometimes really can start with beer pong?

Review:

Claire and Carter’s story continues with the success of Liz and Claire’s business.  With this success comes more complications like living with your boyfriend and pretending that you aren’t interested in getting married all the while secretly watching every wedding reality show you can get your hands on.  This is one of Claire’s many predicaments.  Liz, Claire and Jenny must juggle the changes in their lives that are now filled with more craziness, possible porn addictions, texting your boobs to the wrong guy, dinner roll baseball, lots of “telephone calls” and inappropriate goings on in a sex toy shop.  Can they find their way even when things started out with drunken beer pong?

This is just what every Chocolate Lover fan wanted, a continuation of the crazy people from Seduction and Snacks.  Claire and Carter are even more awesome in this book.  Finding their way through all the craziness, inappropriate comments and way too much information about Drew and Jenny’s sex life.  This is another laugh out loud story.  We really get to know all of them much better.  I really enjoyed the guy time in this book.  I think they just keep getting funnier and I truly didn’t think that was possible.  They must share one brain and I guarantee Liz and Claire would agree with me.  This book continues to show Tara Sivec’s extraordinary talent for making up inappropriate sexual terms, colorful names and wrap them up in a story that pulls you in and makes you feel like the characters are your friends too.  This is what makes her AWESOME!!!  Just another reason to pick up everything she writes even if it may just be a grocery list on a post-it.
