Wish List - April 2010

This great idea was stolen from Steph Su Reads.. It is a montly feature she does on her blog where she mentions recently released or soon to be released books that she wants to read. This month I am playing along. Authors and publishers, if you're interested in having me review your book, don't hesitate to send me an email at pinkflipflops44 at gmail dot com! I'd love to hear from you!



Description: When the principal announces that every senior must participate in a mandatory year-long Marriage Education program, Fiona Sheehan believes that her life can’t get any worse. Then she marries her “husband”: Jerky jock Todd, whose cheerleader girlfriend, Amanda, has had it in for Fiona since day one of second grade. Even worse? Amanda is paired with Fiona’s long-term crush, Gabe. At least Fiona is doing better than her best friend, Marcie, who is paired up with the very quiet, very mysterious Johnny Mercer. Pranks, fights, misunderstandings, and reconciliations ensue in an almost Shakespearean comedy of errors about mistaken first impressions, convoluted coupling, and hidden crushes.

Description: When Lake Warren learns that her husband Jack is suing for full custody of their two kids, four months after their separation, she's pretty certain that things can't get any worse. The upside is that she's working with the Advanced Fertility Center as a marketing consultant, alongside the attractive, flirtatious Dr. Keaton. But when, the morning after their one-night stand, she finds Keaton with his throat slashed, Lake learns that things can indeed become worse - they can become deadly. So not to jeopardise her case for custody, Lake is forced to lie to the police. Having just been intimate with a man who has been murdered, and wanting to protect herself from being charged with the crime, she begins her own investigation. But when the police start looking at her closely, people at the clinic start treating her with hostility, and strange and dangerous clues begin dropping-quite literally-on her doorstep, Lake realises that she is dangerously close to dark truths about Keaton and the clinic. But can Lake stop what she's started before it's too late?

Description: Millions of readers have fallen in love with Little Women. But how could Louisa May Alcott-who never had a romance-write so convincingly of love and heart-break without experiencing it herself?

Description: Andie Ryborg is on the run. Her father's campaign for governor and work against the illegal drug trade has put a target on her head. Hiding out in a quiet bungalow in Miami's exotic Coconut Grove, she hopes to find a normal life removed from the treachery of her father's world. But no matter how far she runs, she can't escape the powerful Francini family.
Haunted by her mother's untimely death and the uneasy feeling that someone is watching her, Andie eventually buckles under the weight of fright and returns to her childhood home in Tallahassee. But trouble is not far behind as Andie finds herself in the crosshairs of an assassin's rifle. As she tries to win her freedom and save what family she has left, she must deal with her mother's legacy, a God she doesn't completely trust, and someone else-whose motives are not what they seem but might be exactly what Andie needs.
