Domestic Affairs: A Campaign Novel

~ I received a copy of this book from the publisher or author to facilitate this review.  I received no compensation and opinions are 100% my own or my family. ~



Synopsis (from Amazon): When twentysomething political fund-raiser Olivia Greenley gets tapped to work on the presidential campaign of Georgia governor, Landon Taylor, it’s her dream job. Her best friend in the world is the campaign manager, and Taylor is a decent, charismatic idealist, with a real chance to be a great leader. Sacrificing her sleep, comfort, friends, family and income for a year to make the world a better place is the right call, but what happens when both Campaign Lesson #1, No Kissing the Boss, and Lesson #2, Loyalty Above All, go down in flames before the first primary? 

Bridget Siegel, veteran of the John Edwards and President Obama campaigns, vividly captures the idealism and chaos, as well as the emotional heat and corruption, of the candidate’s bubble. What becomes of Olivia’s best friends when she must keep from them the biggest secret of her life?   Is the candidate a true romantic or a political hypocrite? How far can she go to justify her happiness?

Told with savvy, humor, and delicious inside-the-Beltway detail, Domestic Affairs is a page-turning tale of love on the campaign trail—and its consequences—from a consummate political insider.


My Review:  Domestic Affairs was a great read!  Perfect anytime of the year!

Favorite Character(s):  My favorite character was without a doubt Olivia. I think it would be so fun to get to do everything she did (well almost). The exotic parties, rubbing elbows with who's who, working so closely with the potential next president.....all that blows my mind!  Of course, she is missing what really counts in life and never gets to sleep.  

Setting:  The book really takes place in many different locations.  I loved the locations and descriptions of the fundraising parties.  Oh how others live!  

Fast read/slow read:  I think this was an "in-between" read.  It wasn't fast or slow for me.  It was interesting enough to keep me engaged.  

Cover:  Oh yes, I liked it!

One (or more) Sentence Summary:  Domestic Affairs was a great read.  I really have no doubt that "the stuff" in the book happens in the real political scene/campaigning.  I am not sure why, but I wanted it to be a little more "steamy."  It is probably my summer mood. It was a lot a fun trying to figure out who the different characters are in "real life."  

Would I Read Other Books by the Author: Yes, I would!

The Light Between Oceans




Synopsis (from Amazon):  After four harrowing years on the Western Front, Tom Sherbourne returns to Australia and takes a job as the lighthouse keeper on Janus Rock, nearly half a day’s journey from the coast. To this isolated island, where the supply boat comes once a season, Tom brings a young, bold, and loving wife, Isabel. Years later, after two miscarriages and one stillbirth, the grieving Isabel hears a baby’s cries on the wind. A boat has washed up onshore carrying a dead man and a living baby.

Tom, who keeps meticulous records and whose moral principles have withstood a horrific war, wants to report the man and infant immediately. But Isabel insists the baby is a “gift from God,” and against Tom’s judgment, they claim her as their own and name her Lucy. When she is two, Tom and Isabel return to the mainland and are reminded that there are other people in the world. Their choice has devastated one of them.

My Review:  The Light Between Oceans was a let down for me.  I don't know if it was because so many others raved about it, I set my expectations too high or because I listened to the audio book instead of reading it. I usually LOVE audio books, so I am not sure why this book didn't work for me. Please know it is really hard for me to say this about a book.

Favorite Character(s):  My favorite character was Lucy.  She was so carefree in her earlier years on the island.  I also really liked the connection she builds with her real grandfather.  The two of them developed a special bond and it "softened" him.  He also helped her through her terrible transition.

Setting:  LOVED it.  I always dreamed of living on island and in a lighthouse.  Of course modern time with all the bells and whistles.  I would also like to be able to go a shore to the mainland daily (or as often I liked).  

Fast read/slow read:  It was a slow one for me to listen too.  I wasn't excited for commute to work like I usually am with audio books.

Cover:  Oh yes, I liked it! Look at the other BEAUTIFUL covers I found.



One (or more) Sentence Summary:  The Light Between Oceans tells a good tale and I really did feel heart ache for all the characters.  Such a terrible ordeal for ALL of them to go through.  Please look at others reviews....like I said, there are so many raving reviews out there.  It just wasn't for me.

Would I Read Other Books by the Author: I am not sure.

Q & A: with Bridget Siegel, Author of Domestic Affairs: A Campaign Novel 


Favorite color, food, drink and animal?
Blue, French fries, Patron Silver with a couple of limes and horses. 
What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
I'm in the process of finishing my first feature film. I acted in it and I'm producing it and the combination of the two takes up all my time, free and otherwise! It's called That Thing With The Cat and hopefully it will be hitting a film festival soon! 
When/Why did you start writing?
I have always loved to write but never actually thought I'd be lucky enough to do it professionally. I started in earnest after I stopped working on campaigns and had real time to reflect on all of the experiences. 
What is your favorite writing spot?
The NYC Subway or more specifically the N/R line and sometimes the Q if I have less to write. The subway is the only place I can actually get writing done. There's just enough commotion to keep me from daydreaming and not enough to distract me. I'm probably one of the few New Yorkers who is not excited to see them putting Wi-Fi in the subway tunnels. 
Do you have writing routine?
I board the closest subway and pull out my trusty BlackBerry. I have it down almost to a science -- I can write 2500 words if I go all the way to the Coney Island stop, 1500 to Atlantic Blvd and so on. 
Who are some of your favorite authors?
So many!   Paolo Coehlo, Lindsay Kelk, Jennifer Weiner, Andy Tobias, Jeff Madrick, Alberto Hazan
How's that for a random mix?! I also love reading plays, any and all. 
Can you read other books while writing your own?
Yes. Reading inspires me to write. 
What are currently (or last read) reading now?
I just finished reading Lauren Graham's book, Someday, Someday Maybe and I'm so excited to see it made into a tv show. As an aspiring actress I thought it was a great read and a good handbook for making it through! 
What is your favorite genre?
I'm a total sucker for romantic comedies. 
What is your favorite(s) song/movie/play/TV show?
Song - Anything by Eminem
Movie - I watch the old Sabrina almost every night. It's like my own version of a lullaby. And Animal House and Major League. I can literally recite both of those movies by heart. (So I'm really annoying to watch them with!) 
Play - The best play I ever saw was La Bete with Mark Rylance. He is bar none the most incredible actor I've ever seen take the stage. I also love musicals, especially Rent which I saw an embarrassing amount of times.
TV show - I love creative tv shows like Project Runway and Fabulous Cakes -- and I pretend after I watch them that I know how to do what they do, which usually ends with me covered in a mess of fabric or icing. I'm also obsessed with David Tutera's My Fair Wedding. His weddings are works of art. It's an event planner's dream! And I love Scandal, Newsroom, Modern Family, Friends, Will and Grace -- the list goes on and on. I love tv. 
If you could go anywhere for vacation/holiday, where would you go?
Disney World, my happy place. I'd also love to explore South Africa one day. 
Which would you pick:
Ocean/beach or pool: POOL, I don't like mysterious creatures under my feet, though I definitely love the seaside! 
Coffee or tea: COFFEE (though some would call what I drink milk and sugar with a touch of coffee) 
Fruit or candy: CANDY, this one was easy. The more sugar, the better. 
A book or e-book: BOOK 
Computer or tablet/smart phone: BLACKBERRY 
Camping or Hoteling: HOTELING 
Driving or Flying: DRIVING

Vacation

~ I received a copy of this book from the publisher or author to facilitate this review.  I received no compensation and opinions are 100% my own or my family. ~


Synopsis (from Amazon): Dr. William Koval, a pragmatist with little faith in humanity, prefers to dwell in the eerily comforting microscopic realm, where he is master of his domain. But his worldview is upended when he decides to go on the English walking tour his wife had been planning before her murder three years earlier. Only when William confronts his past, including his troubled marriage, will he find a way to rejoin the living, to move forward, and perhaps love again. The real journey, he discovers, lies within.


My Review:  Vacation was a great read!  Perfect anytime of the year!

Favorite Character(s):  My favorite characters were Ralph and Winfred.  Even though they were not the main characters they added humor to the story.  Two others were Beatrice and Claudine.  The mother daughter pair added a lot of color to the England part of the story.  Of course throughout the book I was cheering for William.  As I learned more about Kathleen, I found I was really disappointed in her and her choices.  However, those choices laid the foundation for the story.

Setting:  I LOVED it.  I would love to do a walking tour (bike, bus, car, train - any kind of tour through England!) through England.  The scenes are so well described, I could purchase myself as part of the touring group.

Fast read/slow read:  This book was such a fast read.  I love fast reads! The story really moved along.  I also never saw the connection between William and Annie and what a twist it made to the story! Holy Cow.....couldn't stop reading!

Cover:  Not my favorite.

One Sentence Summary:  Vacation was a fun read.  I loved the setting, most of it took place in England and the rest in Seattle.  I still can't get over the connection between William and Annie.  All the characters and their personalities really made a great story!

Would I Read Other Books by the Author: Yes, I would!


Meet the Author: JC (Jeanne) holds an MA in education and is a founding member of JAM, an editorial-consultation team. An avid reader and table tennis enthusiast, JC resides in Northern California.  You can connect with her online at her website

Purchase: You can purchase Vacation online at Amazon for $14.99.

A Beautiful Heist TLC Book Tours + Giveaway!




Synopsis (from Amazon): Everyone has a talent. Some are just more legal than others. Cat Montgomery steals jewels for AB&T, the premier agency for thieves in Seattle. Career perks: good pay, great disguises, constant adrenaline rush. Drawbacks: the possibility of jail time…or worse. Now she’s taken on a lucrative side job—recovering a priceless Faberge egg for an alleged Romanov descendent.


Though Cat is working solo, there are plenty of interested players. Her FBI ex-boyfriend is nosing around, as is her former mentor-turned-nemesis. Then there’s the sexy art thief helping—or is he hindering?—her mission. If her luck holds out, this could be the case that allows Cat to retire with her conscience and her life intact. If not, it’ll be her last job for all the wrong reasons…

My Review:  I really enjoyed A Beautiful Heist and here is a summary of why I did!

Favorite Character(s):  My favorite character was Cat (of course).  She was just too cool, but in a realistic way.  She didn't have oodles of money, or things just handed to her.  She was believable and funny in her own way.  Her mom was a hoot too!

Setting:  I found it a little weird that the story takes place in Seattle.  It just didn't seem right to me.  NYC, London, Paris.....I could have easily gotten that setting.  I just never thought of Seattle as being a city/area where a business could employee so many people by performing high end heists.  I obviously am wrong. Note: I have never been to Seattle, but would LOVE too visit some day!

Fast read/slow read:  This book was such a fast read.  I love fast reads!  I couldn't get enough and just had to keep reading - my favorite kind of book!

Cover:  It's perfect.

One Sentence Summary: A Beautiful Heist is a great read.  I like to think of it as an adult Ally Carter (Heist Society series) type of book.  I loved that series!  I really want a sequel taking place in Europe.  

Would I Read Other Books by the Author: Oh yes, and I want the sequel! I would read anything by Kim....she is my kind of author!


Meet the Author:  Kim Foster is a medical doctor who has been a lifelong lover of fiction. She's a mom who decided that midnight feedings of her newborn were a fine time to get serious about writing. And, she's a novelist who, in spite of sound advice to 'write what you know', simply couldn't resist crafting a story about a professional jewel thief.  (SBN - seriously she is superwoman)

Online, you can find her blogging about her left-brain, right-brain mash-up. A practicing physician and the health blogger for YummyMummyClub.ca, Kim makes regular TV, radio, and speaking appearances. She is a member of the Victoria Writer's Society and the Pacific Northwest Writers Association, and lives in Victoria, British Columbia with her husband and their two young boys. A BEAUTIFUL HEIST is her first novel.

Fifty Shades of Schwarz - Interview with Author




Synopsis (from Amazon): Fifty Shades of Grey is hilariously sent-up by an exciting new indie author, Ed Harris, in Fifty Shades of Schwarz. Ana Steele, move over and make way for Maya Stein, a sexy 29-year old Brandeis graduate living in trendy Brooklyn and working in Manhattan for an Internet marketing firm. While Ana of that other series - which has sold a mere 65 million copies - may be a virgin who never owned a computer, Maya is a confident, experienced young woman with several notches on her belt and who spends most of her day surfing the web. As the book opens, Maya is dating Jeremy Goldberg, a part-time waiter and yoga teacher who is pursuing an online graduate degree in education and trying to develop a screenplay. Maya is ambivalent about her feelings for Jeremy. She insists that they be allowed to date other people and refuses to change her Facebook status to “in a relationship.” A chance encounter on JDate leads Maya to Aaron Schwarz, a brooding, intense commercial real estate broker with unusual tastes in the bedroom as a result of a troubled upbringing. Meanwhile, Maya’s mom, Dottie Stein, is trying to fix Maya up with a single young rabbi, David Teitelbaum. And, more than ten years later, Maya still wonders wistfully if she should have gone to senior prom with Adam Goldman, who is about to graduate from Harvard Medical School. How might her life be different today as a doctor’s wife if she hadn’t turned him down because of his teenage acne? Fifty Shades of Schwarz is laugh-out-loud funny, while also a moving story of trying to find love and romance in a modern, hookup culture. Readers will identify with Maya and the other richly drawn characters, and be entertained by a humorous and fast-paced story. Find out why Stanford grad and former contestant on the TV show The Bachelor, Britt Billmaier wrote: I so enjoyed Fifty Shades of Schwarz! In particular, I love the situations you've created to allow the reader to get to know Maya. I'm incredibly impressed at your understanding of the female psyche. In my opinion, you've nailed it.



Meet the Author:  Author Ed Harris is a Seattle resident. His children, three in number and of assorted genders, skin colors and countries of origin, are united in a common belief that their father was born fully-formed as a grouchy adult. His long-suffering wife bears silent testimony to the saying that "behind every successful man is a surprised woman." Harris was born in New York, and has lived in the US, Israel and the Netherlands. He is regarded by his friends and loved ones as a nudge, a Yiddish word that does not have a direct English language equivalent, and used to characterize someone who is particularly annoying.

The author's literary favorites include SJ Perelman, Mark Twain and Michael Chabon. Ernest Hemingway once wrote of someone going broke "very slowly and then all of a sudden." The author implores the reading public to buy Fifty Shades of Schwarz and other books of his so he can avoid the same fate.

Interview with Ed Harris:
Favorite color, food, drink and animal?  Color: red; food: Food: any type of Italian food, especially with garlic and olive oil (I am a vegetarian, and so I love cuisines that don’t require meat – Indian is another favorite); drink: Diet Coke; animal: dog

You’ll note that I did not include an alcoholic beverage under “drink” which was probably the intent of the question. I abstain from most vices (or pleasures, depending on your perspective), such as smoking or drinking and, as noted above, am a vegetarian.  I do, however, continue to enjoy the last remaining one of the Seven Deadly Sins – lust – and hope to remain consistent in my habits in that regard.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?  My favorite activity is spending time with family. I have three kids and one son-in-law, ages 24, 23, 19 and 14, plus an amazing wife (age not disclosed).

I also enjoy reading, playing golf (poorly, but I wouldn’t enjoy it any less if I played well) hiking and the outdoors, working out (mostly treadmill and exercise bike), the Sunday NY Times crossword puzzle and I have one major rooting interest as a sports fan: The NY football Giants. I went to the games regularly with my dad until moving to Seattle in 1990, going all the way back to childhood when they used to play in the old Yankee Stadium. I told my kids they are not obligated to care about team sports (and in fact none of them do) but if they had any interest in football, the only team they are allowed to root for is the Giants.

When/Why did you start writing?  I started writing about six or seven years ago, when I was working on my first book, Murphy’s Bed, a coming-of-age story about a gay teen growing up in a religious family.  I have always loved reading – some of my favorite memories from childhood include books that I loved, and as a dad, when my kids were smaller, one of my greatest pleasures was reading bedtime stories to them.  I read the entire Harry Potter series, all seven volumes, to my youngest over a stretch of several years.

I think that writing is just an extension of my love of reading.  I felt that I deserved to give myself a shot at seeing if I could write something that others would enjoy.  I happen to love writing, and so that is also one of my favorite “leisure” activities.

What is your favorite writing spot?  Anywhere that is not at home. Even though, as noted above, I love my family, it’s hard to avoid the distractions associated with a busy household.  Our house has a basement level, which is where I have an office set up and where I do most of my writing.  I would prefer a separate office in a different location, but until I hit the bestseller list, for financial reasons I’ll continue the current arrangement.

Do you have writing routine?  At my most productive, I’ll get a very early start, with breakfast at about 6 am, followed by a workout and shower, and then start writing around 8 am, keeping at it until 4 or 5 pm.  Of course, the road to hell is paved with good intentions, and I consider it nothing less than a small miracle when I can actually get in a day like that. More often than not distractions pop up – that darn working from home again.  But like a surfer catching a great wave, a day with an early start and seven or eight hours of steady focus is one that I find grateful to experience.

Who are some of your favorite authors? In no particular order, Mark Twain, George Orwell, Somerset Maugham, Isaac Bashevis Singer, Etgar Keret, Michael Chabon, Jonathan Franzen and Stephen Pinker.

Can you read other books while writing your own?  Absolutely.  I tend to get disheartened, however, when I read someone who I truly admire, like Michael Chabon, and then feel very inadequate by comparison.  However, I have a lot of experience at feeling inadequate, so in general that’s not a problem as I am used to it.

What are currently (or last read) reading now?  The most recent book I read was Jared Diamond’s The World Until Yesterday: What Can We Learn from Traditional Societies? Before that, I read Etgar Keret’s new book, Suddenly a Knock on the Door.

What is your favorite genre?  I tend to enjoy authors first and genres second, so if I find a writer I love, then I usually enjoy their books.  A good example is John McPhee, who has written on a wide diversity of non-fiction topics, such as a profile of then-basketball star - and later US Senator - Bill Bradley (A Sense of Where You Are), the Swiss army (La Place de la Concorde Suisse) and the merchant marine industry (Looking for a Ship).  I imagine that McPhee could find a way to keep the reader entertained if he were writing about the corrugated cardboard box business (note to self – see if there is a Jewish angle I can exploit related to packing materials).

I probably gravitate more to non-fiction as a reader, and fiction as a writer, although neither is an absolute.

What is your favorite(s) song/movie/play/TV show?  For the last twenty-three years, I have mostly been consuming popular culture through my kids. In a recent conversation, I asked a friend if they remembered a particular Sponge Bob episode, and then I suddenly realized, oh, wait a second, not every middle-aged person spent hours watching Sponge Bob.  I sometimes have to remind myself to be a grownup. Memories of SpongeBob are stuck rattling around in my brain with Barney, The Spice Girls, N Sync and a host of other material produced for kids.

Les Miserables holds a very special memory for me and my wife, because it was while attending the original Broadway production in March 1990 that we heard from our adoption consultant that our application had been accepted and we had a daughter waiting for us in Peru. Because of that sentimental connection, it is probably my favorite show.

Also, because I am boring and set in my habits, I rely on my kids to introduce me to new music. In general, I find a lot of the current popular artists fun to listen to. But for the kids I would have my Pandora account permanently set to Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, and had no exposure to Bruno Mars, Flo Rida or LMFAO.

If you could go anywhere for vacation/holiday, where would you go?  Israel, especially Jerusalem.  I spent about a year and a half in Israel between the ages of 18 and 20, learning Hebrew and meeting my future wife.  Second place would be Encinitas, a California beach town just north of San Diego.

Which would you pick:
Ocean/beach or pool  Beach

Coffee or tea  Coffee

Fruit or candy  Fruit

A book or e-book  Both.  I love the convenience of e-readers when I travel and the feel of a traditional book while at home.

Computer or tablet/smart phone  For writing, I need the screen size of a traditional laptop.  I love my smart phone, but can’t type well on virtual keyboards.

Camping or Hoteling  I loved camping as a youth, but discovered that girls tended to prefer guys who shower regularly and wear clean clothing.  Imagine that! I used to take pride in being able to spend a week on the trail without bathing, and my sleeping bag back in my hippie days radiated an evil funk.  Later, I made the connection that my lack of success at dating was directly related to looking like the Unabomber.

Driving or Flying  Flying for anything longer than a half a day of driving.
