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 26 - Gabriel's Angel




Merry Christmas!  For the holiday we read Nora Roberts' Gabriel's Angel.  Despite this being listed as a Christmas book in Novelist!  Despite this having holly and a fucking snow globe on the cover of the reissue!  THIS IS NOT A GODDAMNED CHRISTMAS BOOK.  I have feelings about this.  BIG FEELINGS.

I DO like that it's also a "oh my goodness I suppose we're snowed in!" book.


2616836He's a rich-ass painter.  She's a pregnant lady fleeing a Peril.  There's no nonconsensual sex in this book, but it does discuss abuse in her past and it's got one of those "somebody is trying to steal my baby" plots, which I know is not for some people. 

This is our first Nora Roberts book but we both felt it probably wasn't a great representation of her work (OR A GREAT CHRISTMAS BOOK FOR THAT MATTER.)  We'll definitely do another one that's not a series paperback and compare.

Our promo on this episode is for Deep Into History, a podcast by Courtney's podcast boyfriend Arjun.
