Deb Lisa Daily’s book Fifteen Minutes of Shame just received an A review at the BOOKS I FOUND THE TIME TO READ blog.

“Fantastic book, as soon as I picked it up this book I couldn’t put it down. Managed to finish it in one night, and that’s still getting to sleep on time and doing all my homework. Darby was a lovable character, someone that would hit right to the heart of many women. I found myself groaning out loud when she got herself into more trouble, and cheering her on when she did something amazing. The other characters in this book are realistic, and make me smile thinking about how they match up to my own friends. The whole time I was reading this book I kept thinking about what would happen next, while some parts were predictable, all in all a fantastic story.”

Debs are reading
Deb Eve is reading all of 2008’s Deb’s fabulous books (hey, I was really busy last year WRITING a book. Who had time to read?). First up: Jess Riley’s DRIVING SIDEWAYS. I am loving Leigh and Denise (they’re funny and I love funny!) and I absolutely adore that Leigh refers to “God herself” making an appearance. You go girls!
