Episode 33: Irish Thoroughbred

Irish Thoroughbred is Nora Roberts' first book - we wanted to see where one of the richest, most popular authors around got her start.  Well.  It is something. Adelia lives in 16th century Ireland and has lost everything, so she gets on a plane to 1980 and becomes a horse trainer!  Horse girl alert: THIS IS NOT A HORSE GIRL BOOK.  I have read a lot, you guys, a lot of books with horse races in them and I can assure you that these horse races are the least exciting horse races in the world.  Nora.  Please.


So Travis is the boring-ass romance novel dude who's always throwing her up against walls and stuff and he owns everything including the house she lives in, so that's just great.  There's a sham marriage, there's a rape attempt, there's some seriously weird Irish stereotyping... at least there's a shopping montage! We do have a special treat for you - two different Rounds brothers get to talk about horse racing and horse drinking in this episode! An inausp…

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!
