Special Edition - The Charm Offensive by Alison Cochrun

We had the great pleasure of sitting down with Alison Cochrun to talk about her very buzzy book, The Charm Offensive .  If you'd like to purchase a copy, please consider buying from Alison's local independent bookstore, Vintage Books!  At this time there are signed copies available! Dev Deshpande has always believed in fairy tales. So it’s no wonder then that he’s spent his career crafting them on the long-running reality dating show Ever After. As the most successful producer in the franchise’s history, Dev always scripts the perfect love story for his contestants, even as his own love life crashes and burns. But then the show casts disgraced tech wunderkind Charlie Winshaw as its star. Charlie is far from the romantic Prince Charming Ever After expects. He doesn’t believe in true love, and only agreed to the show as a last-ditch effort to rehabilitate his image. In front of the cameras, he’s a stiff, anxious mess with no idea how to date twenty women on national television. B

Episode 25: Sweet Liar



He's a rich Taggart romance-novel-dude powerlifter with a big family and a sweet townhouse!  She's an emotionally locked down country mouse forced by one of those Improbable Wills to go to New York for a few years to investigate a crime that may or may not have happened to her dead or not dead grandmother and then they... put on a show about it.  Seriously, there is no way to describe this book, you just have to experience it.  There's no present-day sexual violence in this book, but her ex-husband emotionally abused her and in 1928 all sorts of awful Tommy gun business went down.


Yeah, we read another Jude Deveraux book and yeah, somebody sprinkled some crack on it again!  This one almost broke us, y'all.  It's got: fantasy shopping montages!  Kidnappings!  Insane family picnics!  Weird racial business in Harlem!  Improbable lawyers!  Literally cosplaying a mass murder to the tune of several million dollars!  We only covered half of this book in this podcast and it still took us an hour and a half!
