The No-Kids Club by Talli Roland

My e-friend and author, Talli Roland, has just released her new novel, The No-Kids Club (June 3, 2014; Lake Union Publishing).

At almost forty, Clare Donoghue is living child-free and loving it.  Then her boyfriend says he wants kids, breaking off their promising relationship. And it’s not just boyfriends: one by one, her formerly carefree friends are swallowed up in a nonstop cycle of play dates and baby groups. So Clare decides it’s time for people who don’t have children to band together. And so the No-Kids Club is born.

As the group comes together—Anna, who’s seeking something to jumpstart a stale marriage, and Poppy, desperate for a family but unable to conceive—Clare’s hoping to make the most of the childless life with her new friends.  Will the No-Kids Club be Clare’s route to happiness, or will the single life lose its sparkle.

I loved this book! A great cast of characters, a hilarious and witty writing style and a modern plot, The No-Kids Club is reminiscent of the wildly popular Shopaholic series.

Told from viewpoints of three different women, the story is fresh, captivating, and funny as hell! Don't forget to pack this one in the diaper bag as you're headed for the beach!

My New Year Resolutions

After very little thought, the following are my 2014 New Year resolutions:
  1. Eat less red meat!
  2. Smoke less (I'm down to ten from twenty a day, but I'd like to make it five).
  3. Go to Mass more often.
  4. Get back to exercising!
  5. Drink less coffee and more water (yah, like that's gonna happen!)
  6. Grow my hair a little longer (I always give in and get it chopped off when it hits that "awkward stage").
  7. Write more!
Will you make any New Year resolutions?  Can you share them with us?

I wish you a Happy and Blessed 2014!
