One Night Wife One Night Wife by Ainslie Paton is 99c! This is book one in The Confidence Game series and I thought we had mentioned it previously on the site, but alas, it did not already exist in our database. It’s possible I saw it from Elyse’s Goodreads because she rated it five stars. Finley Cartwright is the queen of lost causes. That’s why she’s standing on a barstool trying to convince Friday night drinkers to donate money to her failing charity. Hitting on the guy on the next stool wasn’t part of her plan. Still, hot but grumpy venture capitalist Caleb Sherwood might just be her ticket to success. Professional grifter and modern-day Robin Hood, Cal Sherwood is looking for a partner for a long con. Sexy Fin, doing her best Marilyn Monroe act for her cause, has the necessary qualifications. By the time he cuts her free, her charity would be thriving, and she’d have helped him charm billions out of arrogant, gullible marks to fund his social justice causes. But just when he thinks he’s about to pull off the best con ever, his feisty new partner gets the upper hand. Add to Goodreads To-Read List → You can…

During the fight for women’s suffrage in California, the support of Latinx voters was essential. Maria Guadalupe Evangelina Lopez fought for suffrage, taught at the high school and university level, flew an airplane, and was an ambulance driver in WWI. She was the first (confirmed) Latina to teach at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) and, as of 1902, their youngest professor. She was also the first person in The United States of America to make speeches about women’s suffrage in Spanish. Lopez was born in Los Angeles, California in 1881. She was one of several children. Her father was a blacksmith and her mother and oldest sister stayed at home. The oldest sister earned money as a seamstress but was unable to get much formal education, and not much is known about the other siblings. However, most of the children had grown up and either moved out or gotten work to supplement the family income, which allowed de Lopez and one other sister to graduate from high school. After marrying Hugh Lowther, a professor, she became Maria Lopez de Lowther. Lopez was a member of the Los Angeles Votes For Women Club and president of the College Equal…

It’s April and time for our first Whatcha Reading of the month! I’m personally pretty deep into a slump and that’s okay! I’m trying not to focus too much on what I think I should be doing. Instead, I want to listen to my brain and body on what they’d like to do in this weird time. So far, it’s play Animal Crossing: New Horizons and eat a bunch of string cheese. Lara: I’m on a major Cat Sebastian kick at the minute, and we’ve chosen one of her books for our next book club book (hey Katusha!) So far, The Ruin of a Rake is everything I want in a Cat Sebastian novel – sizzle, witty banter and so much good book noise! A | BN | K | AB Shana: I’m reading On the Edge by Ilona Andrews. It was Aarya’s recommendation for a first Andrews book and it’s delightful so far. The story is compelling enough to suck me in via audiobook, which is rare for me. Sarah: You’ll never guess. I’m still solving crimes with monks in the 1100s. The Leper of Saint Giles ( A ) is a really, really good book in the Cadfael series,…
