It's stocking stuffer time!  With two young adult nieces, a teenage daughter, and a very glamorous younger sister, I'm turning to Hard Candy for my holiday joy.  Hard Candy has great products (All Matte Up in Venom is my personal favorite) at such reasonable prices that I can afford to give every lady on my list the gift of beautiful lips.  Even gift sets like Get Up and Gloss

 

are less than ten dollars!  At that price, you can even gift one to yourself!

Review: Fear Of Falling (Shores Of Indian Lake)

Her best bet is to stay away 
Was Olivia hearing this right? The one man in Indian Lake she'd found truly intriguing since, well, forever—the hopelessly handsome heir to the region's most successful farming operation, Rafe Barzonni—was involved in horse racing? That made him, and her sudden attraction, downright dangerous. He wasn't just out of her league. He was a gambler. Like her father. With the shame of her father's racetrack betting addiction still haunting her, Olivia can't be part of that world. Rafe's world. She can't trust him, or his magnetism. But there's something deep in his incredible blue eyes that keeps drawing her closer…

--- book description

I like a little romance as much as the next girl, but Catherine Lanigan's Fear of Falling (Harlequin, 2016) just didn't make my heart pitter patter.  Olivia is likable enough, I suppose, but Rafe is annoying.  The book relies on the usual romance trope of lovers torn asunder by misunderstanding, but the misunderstanding is so petty and childish that it fails to move the reader to anything but exasperation.  Fear of Falling just doesn't satisfy.  Skip this one.

The War On Thanksgiving

The Walmart where I suffer shop has already put up a fully lighted Christmas tree.  I kid you not.  It's right at the check-out.  You can't miss it . . . as long as you aim your cart right.  BOOM!  Deck those halls, baby!

Just doing my part to save Thanksgiving.
