"One of my bitches gave birth to a litter of mongrels. Before, they were too young to tell. But now... Well, I'd hoped for purebreads."
"Are we speaking of dogs or women?"
"Which would you prefer?" He gave her an impish grin.
"Oh, hush up," she hissed, and he chuckled.

  7. Well, I don't know. His comment didn't win me over.(: It didn't seem to bother her. So I must have gotten up on the wrong side of the bed.

  8. The cover looks really "bad". I have not read any of Sarah's work, but that cover alone would make me give it a shot.

  13. That is a funny passage. Mine is much tamer. It came from the newly released Pioneer Girl: The Annotated Autobiography by Laura Ingalls Wilder and edited by Pamela Smith Hill.

    Hope you have a great weekend.

  17. I keep seeing this book being touted but I have to say that quote didn't win me over either. I didn't find that even remotely amusing. Sorry.

  18. The quote made me smile - don't think the book is quite my thing, but the writing looks fun. This is my first time trying your meme - I'm enjoying surfing about - Louise

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

7th Blogoversary! (#Giveaway)

Back in 2009, I decided to start this blog for book reviews. I had my other blog for photography, but didn't want to mix anything with it. So Freda's Voice was born.

I deleted the first post I ever wrote. It was just a bunch of blathering on about starting the blog. Much like the first paragraph here.


So let's get to the good stuff.
You know I can only celebrate how far Freda's Voice has come by giving back to you, the readers. Without you, this would be for me and me alone, and what would be the point in that?!

There will be one US and one Canadian winner. They can each choose a book from Amazon valued at $10 or less. 

Easy enough, right?!
