Whiskey Tango Foxtrot by David Shafer

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot is the story of three 30-somethings who find themselves involved in the underworld of society. No, not that underworld - the one that involves a cabal of powerful people trying to take over the lives of everyone and the group of regular folks who are trying to stop them. These three characters must determine who they are and what they are willing to do in order to stay on the right side of history. 

This is no easy task as decisions that they make affect their family's, careers and even their future romantic interests. This story will kidnap your attention and take you on a wild ride, you won't soon forget. 

I highly recommend this book. The characters were believable and relatable. I found myself fully invested in the decisions they made as each took their specific courses of action. It also made me think twice about what I post on the internet and how much information is put into the hands of corporate America. 

Here's my warning though - there is a lot of language in this book that could be offensive to you. Please realize that this is an adult book and not a YA book so the author's choices reflect the genre. If you can look past the language or it doesn't bother you then I would definitely suggest you read it. Its like Hunger Games meets James Bond meets Thank you for Smoking.

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot releases today from Mulholland Books.

A copy of Whiskey Tango Foxtrot was given to me for review by the publisher through NetGalley. All opinions are my own.

How to Complain

After yesterday's post, I though I should provide something a little more helpful to my readers. Here are some tips I've developed from answering customer service calls and emails from time to time. You may have some other extremely helpful tips, feel free to leave them in the comments so we can all benefit!
Be Specific. This is definitely my number one tip. If you aren't specific it means that the person on the other end doesn't know details that can be used to rectify the situation. Also, the more details you provide the more credibility you lend to the situation. If it is a reoccurring incident call each time it happens. From a customer service standpoint, we would rather rectify the situation now than find about it in two days when it has happened two more times.Don't Rant, Yell, or Scream. Tell someone you would like to complain and then do it with a cool head. This may mean that you need to write an email complaint versus getting on the phone. Keep in mind th…

Lizzy & Jane by Katherine Reay

I'm a big fan of Katherine Reay's work. Her stories are entertaining and deep. I took this a book to read on the beach, but I couldn't put it down and spent time reading instead of beaching. Lizzy and Jane are sisters. Estranged by the past and living on different coasts when Jane is diagnosed with cancer. Lizzy returns home for a visit and they struggle to reconnect in ways that will help heal. 

You can trust Reay to take you on an emotional journey with her books and Lizzy and Jane did not disappoint. The characters are real with their own passions, struggles and flaws. Their family is fractured, but the hope they have for rebuilding is alive. 

I loved this book and I think you will too. My only complaint was that it eventually ended.

The Royal We by Heather Cocks & Jessica Morgan

Hi, Sweetums! I should warn you that I'm about to gush!

I just finished The Royal We by Heather Cocks & Jessica Morgan. To say it was unputdownable is an understatement.

Cornell college student Bex Porter decides to do an exchange program at Oxford one semester and when she arrives on campus who should open the door to her new life but Steve Prince Nick. Bex didn't come to Oxford in hopes of finding love, she came for the adventure and the art. What she finds instead is something so much more.

Let me start by saying that I love princess books. From The Princess Diaries to The Runaway Princess to the Royal Wedding Series, I can't get enough.

The Royal We did not disappoint with its lively and well developed characters. It's British backdrop and truthful narrator gave it the feel of having a chat with your bestie over a cup of tea. I stayed up late and got up early so that I could keep reading. I didn't want this book to end. But it didn't disappoint, even until…
