All the Time in the World by Caroline Angell

Jacket.aspx

Charlotte is a nanny for the McLeans, a family living in the Upper East Side of Manhattan.  She’s actually a talented composer, working as a nanny temporarily.  As she takes a step back from the music business by choice (and also fueled by a betrayal), she easily falls into the day-to-day on-goings of the McLean family. A tragedy forces Charlotte to make decisions that are life changing both professionally and personally.  Caroline Angell’s development of Charlotte’s character  keeps you captive from beginning to end, and makes you feel as if you are a part of her journey and self-discoveries.  Throughout the underlying sadness of the tragedy,  Angell delivers plenty of humor and sexiness to offset it.

The Guest Room by Chris Bohjalian

Loved this book!   Russian bodyguards, bachelor party-gone-wrong, escorts, dead people, girls fleeing…. all taking place in the Westchester home of the Chapmans (YES- all this inJacket.aspx just the first few chapters!!)  The author creates a very likeable character – Richard Chapman- whose life changes in the matter of a night.  Mainly told from the perspective of Richard and Alexandra, the “dark-haired girl”,  we piece together the “what” and “why” in this crime thriller and fall  in love with each character along the way.  Underneath the fast-paced drama, the author touches upon human trafficking, as well as the meaning of  family, love, and relationships.

Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology by Leah Remini

remini   Fascinating story.  It is not just about Scientology.  What I have always liked about Leah Remini is that she owns up to who she is (negative and positive aspects), such as being annoying and having a big mouth…two of the things that earn her the title “troublemaker”.  This well written book will take a hold of you, especially if you are a fan of the actress, or just want to know if Scientology is the cult you thought it was (my opinion at least).  She shares her experiences growing up in Hollywood, while entering Scientology as a kid.  This viewpoint holds its own appeal, because she isn’t one of the many celebrities who joined Scientology as an adult when it seemed to be “trending”. Don’t judge🙂 and pick up this book if you are remotely interested, because you won’t be disappointed!
