Special Edition: To Have and to Hoax

We had the opportunity to try something new - we were asked if we'd like to interview debut author Martha Waters about her book To Have and to Hoax, you know, back then when the world was young and we were allowed to leave our houses.  Martha was really nice and we feel really bad that all her fun book release party stuff got cancelled - however, she's doing a virtual launch Tuesday April 7th on Instagram at 7 PM EST so maybe go join her there.

To Have and to Hoax is a Publisher's Weekly starred Regency romantic comedy about... well, about somebody who fakes contracting a fatal respiratory disease so, like, timely!  This is a great time to support your local bookstore, so we've linked to Martha's local Chapel Hill bookstore Flyleaf (where her party was supposed to take place) if you'd like to buy a copy.  Looks like they're doing $1 media mail shipping if you spend $25!

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.
