Review: Hidden, by Rebecca Zanetti

Malcolm “Mal” West is a recently retired undercover police officer. His last assignment left him physically and mentally battered. Plagued with guilt at having betrayed the closest thing he had to a brother and at the same time proud to have been part of taking down one of the most powerful mafia families in the country, he’s decided to retreat to a quieter life. But moving next door to Pippa Smith was the start of anything but quiet. Pippa has been on the run from a cult leader, Isaac and his followers, known as The Family, for years. She’s learned the art of not getting close to anyone and staying not only under the radar but completely off the grid. Living just…

Book Review: Reflected in You

I will start by admitting that I am a Fifty Shades of Grey addict. I read the entire trilogy more than once and I have searched far and wide for the same high I got from reading the series. Sadly, nothing has truly filled the void–insert the Crossfire trilogy. People have compared the two trilogies, personally, I don’t see it. Both have damaged heroes that are young billionaires, but that’s about where the similarities...

You Know You’re Getting Older When…

I’ve never really thought about my age. I mean, I get older every year, I know this. My number increases, ok. And yes, I celebrate my birthday the entire month of January–incidentally, my birthday is January 11th. However, my actual age and what’s happening to my body as I get older is something that doesn’t cross my mind-until a month ago. My eye doctor is the absolute best. So let me give a shout out...

The Fun Way to Prepare for Vacation

Every year since middle school–without giving away my age, we’ll just say for a long time–I have been blessed to go to Hawaii on vacation with my family. Back story: Long before I was thought of, as my father likes to say–he went to Hawaii when he was in the Navy. After traveling all over the world he concluded it’s the only place that actually looks like the post cards. Hence, the obsession begins....

(Poor) Customer Service: Newspaper Delivery

I’m not going to name any publications, but for the last year I’ve been receiving home weekend delivery of a newspaper—we’ll call it The Moon. One year ago, for $10, I subscribed via Groupon. Seemed like a good deal. And initially, I actually read The Moon on Saturday and Sunday. Last year, prior to my vacation I called to have The Moon held. It was pretty no-nonsense, automated, went well. This year, not so...

Do You Over Commit?

Is it fear of disappointing others? Is it the Superwoman complex? Is it just to prove a point? Do you ever find that saying the word “no” eludes you? You get invited to a party and immediately you ask what can you bring. Your friend from work asks you to join her book and wine club and you tell her to pen you in for the next gathering. And of course, when was the...

Movies Men (And I) Love

I fully intended for this post to be about over commitment. You know, how so many women have difficulty using the word ‘no’ and all the reasons why? But this week is Mob Week on AMC and that changed everything… I grew up in  a household with its fair share of testosterone: father, brother, grandfather, and cousin (male), with a strong influence from my favorite uncle who I saw often. I attribute some of...
