It’s Lisa Scottoline Weekend!

You might not know this about me but I’m a big Lisa Scottoline fan!


It happened rather serendipitously like most things do to me but I’m happy that they did. This weekend our book club (of which I’m host) gets to visit Lisa at her HOUSE!! It’s a great day of meeting new friends, eating food, playing with the doggies, and getting to know Lisa and Francesca better.  Lisa very generously opens up her home to complete strangers.  I don’t know of any other author who does that.  Last year was my first year and I’m thrilled to be going again.

In fact, if you’re reading this on a Saturday, I’m there now, enjoying myself! Stay tuned for more about this wonderful weekend with a very generous author, Lisa Scottoline. I’m also VERY excited about her latest book because my FRIEND will be in it! Not telling you what or why but I’ll let you know as soon as the book drops!

Meanwhile, check out some of my book reviews:

Lisa Scottoline Book Club – Don’t Go UPDATE!!

I know I know, how many book clubs can one woman person belong to??

As many as I can!

So that is why I started the Lisa Scottoline book club at Towne Book Center and Cafe. There are many reasons to read Lisa Scottoline:

  1. She writes good stories
  2. She’s a local and includes local landmarks
  3. There’s a chance to get invited to her house!!!

Unconventional Librarian Lisa Scottoline Don't Go

That’s me mugging with her latest book, late at night, at work.  Booksellers are notorious night owls!

Even though this is only my second Lisa Scottoline book (the first was Look Again), I got caught up in the plot very quickly.  I also thought I had the story figured out.

Boy was I wrong.

No spoilers here, but man was this a good story of a soldier serving in Afghanistan who has to deal with some inexplicable crises.  And while this is a quick moving tale, I would love a little bit less conversation and a teeny bit more descriptive text.  But man did I go through the coffee finishing this one; I didn’t want to put it down!

Thanks for a good read Lisa, I hope to see you at your house this fall for your Book Club Open House soiree!!

Can’t wait to go clubbing tonight!


Book club was SO SO fun! We had an excellent discussion and even agreed to keep the book club going through the summer which is no small feat, for sure.  I’m looking forward to reading one of Lisa Lisa’s older titles:  Come Again, for  our June meeting!


The uber cool people over at Macmillan hipped me to this thing called SoundCloud where you can listen to snippets of books.  I may have found my new addiction after cake, coffee, and Pinterest.  Lisa’s book Don’t Go is available to listen to on audio over at SoundCloud.  Check it out below.

How cool is that, huh?


way. oh boy, i’m gonna need another ipad just to listen to books. good thing my birthday is coming up in (sigh) 6 months…

Go enjoy the book!
