Friday List #Top10FavoriteArtist

It is Friday, finally, and I have a new topic to focus on for the next ten weeks.

How about my Top Ten Favorite all time artists. That would be authors. Maybe next round I will pick my favorite musicians or such…

So I am going to start at the bottom of my list and work my way up each week.

For the past year I have been reading a lot of new authors on my Kindle, so instead of picking my favorite of my favorite I want to pick from the books I have read during this past year. This I have to give some thought to, since I have read a lot of really great books on my kindle.

(Linda pulls up her word pad and jots down her favorite books of the year and hides the list in a secret folder.)


Winning Mr. Wrong

byMarie Higgins

Winning Mr. Wrong

Whoever said the quest for love wasn’t comical never met Charlene Randall. Charley is looking for a man who wants to start a family, a man who will take her to the temple. Problem is, she has never dated a man for longer than three months. When she reads an internet article called “Ten Ways to Win Your Man,” she decides to try it on her new coworker, Maxwell Harrington. Max was her crush in high school, but the superstar sports anchorman doesn’t even remember her. Enter ladies’ man Damien Giovianni, Charley’s handsome neighbor, who agrees to help her win Max over. What follows is a hilarious tale of mishaps and misunderstandings where Charley learns that what she really needs could be right in front of her.


I just loved this book. Not only was it a romance novel but it was funny.

The character Charlene tries a number of ideas on how to get the new guy at work to take notice of her. She thinks he is the guy for her and has kind of assumed that he is a certain type of guy only to find out how wrong she is. She thinks she can read people, especially men and really has not a clue about what can really be hidden underneath the skin.

They say that “beauty is only skin deep…” and Charlene learns that there is more to a person’s character besides their looks and job.

If you haven’t read this book yet and you are looking for a great – funny – romance then look no further.
