I found myself once again in the dating pool at the age of forty-five. This is where "a lot of fish in the sea" becomes "several bottom-feeders peppered with sharks possessing false teeth."

  4. Firstly, the book cover is interesting. Secondly, the title, I don't even know what to say! Lastly, that 56 is utterly hilarious! It totally fits the cover. It would be horrible to be a bottom-feeder at such an age though :/

  5. I would expect a memoir by Brad Garrett to have a lot of humor. Sounds good!

  6. Out of curiosity, have you ever thought about making a Friday56 hashtag on instagram? I love the idea of your meme, but I'm not so keen on microposts. Plus I think lots of hand lettered lines from books would be cute on my instagram feed!

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?

Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…
