PAGE 56:

Nadine snorted. "Ha! Classic. Who in the hell would name their kid after a board-game character?"


  1. LOL - Good question :) Sounds like a fun book.

  2. LOL - funny line. Now I'm wondering what the name is. I have the character names from Clue and Candyland in mind.

  3. Depends on the character's name, I guess. LOL.
    Hope you feel better soon! :)

  4. Hope you feel better real soon. Take good care of yourself Freda.
    Thanks for this funny line! :)

  5. Lol.. Thats a good question. Which Board Game was this?

  6. I saw this book on Amazon a while back and was curious about it. I look forward to your thoughts on it.

  7. I wonder which character? Hope you feel better soon.

  8. See that's what I though of when I first saw this book on your blog!

  9. Let me guess - Plum! As in, Professor Plum in the Library with the Candlestick.

    I hope you feel better soon.

  10. Cute cover and interesting sentence i wonder what the name is?! I guess ill have to invest!

  11. Great choice! Isn't it a great book, I just finished reading it too.

  12. Like your quote! Cute. I am a new follower.

  13. I read : "Ich habe den Erste Hilfe Beutel im Auto"

    The book I read is from Nora Roberts, but in German :) !
    Not a meme for me !

  14. Hmmm, now I want to know which character from which board game. Not Colonel Mustard I hope!

  15. Never mind, the title of the book just hit me. Miss Scarlet is the character. It is getting a little late here and I think my brain might be shutting down, LOL!

  16. Great line! I was always Miss Scarlet when we played Clue.
