About This Blog

This blog was started as a place to post book reviews. The books reviewed here will be mixed. Science Fiction, Fantasy, Romance, General Fiction, NonFiction and more. Both positve and negative reviews will be posted, as well as reviews for books written for all ages and all reading levels.

Many of the books reviewed here are ones that I have purchased for my own reading pleasure. Some, I receive free in exchange for reviews. Beginning in December, 2009 you will know which are the free ones if you read the final paragraph of my reviews.

Also of note: I choose what I will read, attempting to avoid the books on which I would end up writing a negative review... but I have been known to make mistakes. Thus you see some one and two star reviews here. Since I don't enjoy writing negative reviews, I only write them if the review was promised, or if the book was so exceedingly bad, I just had to say so. Regardless of the percentage of positive to negative reviews on this blog, I give my honest opinion each and every time, and have never received financial compensation for posting my reviews.

Note that, except for fair use portions quoted from some of the books reviewed, all copyright in the content of the reviews belongs to Lady Dragoness.

Revealing Insights

Mommies Behaving Badly
Roz Bailey
Paperback: 320 pages
Publisher: Kensington (September 1, 2007)
Rated: 3 stars of 5 Possible

Some signs are hard to ignore... others you don't see until it's too late...and some guide you right where you need to be.

Ruby takes her stolen car as a sign that she and her family need to move away from the hustle and bustle of New York city. At first she finds it difficult to get to know her new neigbors and her husband is constantly away on business. If it wasn't for her new friend Ariel, another transplanted New Yorker, Ruby would be about ready to give it all up. And then life takes an unexpected turn, leaving Ruby and her children in a far-from-familiar place.

By turns witty and insightful, Roz Bailey's novel is chock full of adventure as she copes with first the move from New York, and then with the ups-and-downs of her new life and new-found fame when she publishes her new novel, which her agent is excited about but her old publisher wants nothing to do with.

Never a dull moment passes while reading this story that takes an honest (if at times, all too revealing) look at marriage and family.

Recommended for readers of chick lit ages 16 and up.
