Stressed out mid-western mom in love with all things Austen applies for a part in a British documentary set in the Regency era.  She finds herself instead in the middle of a reality dating show and has to resort to some ingenious wiles, both contemporary and historical, in order to win the guy and the cash.  A light hearted romp perfect for Valentine's Day with the added bonus of lots of Jane Austen inspired clothes and manners.

1. Are you a little OLD for Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus? Do need a book with more pages? You probably do.
2. Do you want to read a funny chapter book featuring ALLIGATORS (with a whole 6 1/2 chapters!)? Of course you do!
3. I love the adventures of Amanda, her Alligator and their new, surprise friend. You will too.

Seven
years after the fall of the Wall in 1989, Funder travels to the former
East Germany to interview both the victims and the victimizers of the
world’s once most notorious police states. Originally published abroad
in 2003 and now seeing its first U.S. publication, the personal stories
she relates of courage, heartbreak, and the sometime absurdities of life
in GDR are still powerful and compelling.Dale

Even if you'd assumed that ex-IRA hitman Jerry Fegan had nowhere to go but completely off the rails in Neville's excellent GHOSTS OF BELFAST, he shows up again in this equally superb sequel. And intense as he is, he's a supporting player - to a very intense situation.  (By the way - this guy is one of the best crime writers I've ever read.)
