A husky woman yelled something at the men and shook a fist, but quieted when the dogs lunged, trying to get free of their restraints. The men laughed, and the angered woman snatched up a child off the old couch and fled.

Giveaway~The Smart One and The Pretty One by Claire LaZebnik

About the Book:
When Ava Nickerson was a child, her mother jokingly betrothed her to a friend's son, and the contract the parents made has stayed safely buried for years. Now that still-single Ava is closing in on thirty, no one even remembers she was once "engaged" to the Markowitz boy. But when their mother is diagnosed with cancer, Ava's prodigal little sister Lauren comes home to Los Angeles where she stumbles across the decades-old document.Frustrated and embarrassed by Ava's constant lectures about financial responsibility (all because she's in a little debt. Okay, a lot of debt), Lauren decides to do some sisterly interfering of her own and tracks down her sister's childhood fiancé. When she finds him, the highly inappropriate, twice-divorced, but incredibly charming Russell Markowitz is all too happy to re-enter the Nickerson sisters' lives, and always-accountable Ava is forced to consider just how binding a contract really is . . .

CBS Cancels 'The Guiding Light'

I grew up watching 'The Guiding Light' with my granny. I would race home everyday after school, to see what would happen in Springfield next. I wanted to be Reva, with the exception of the many different husbands. I would have just kept Josh. I loved Harley Davidson Cooper, Philip Spalding and Frank Cooper. Then I grew up, had to get a job and didn't keep up with the town of Springfield anymore. But I always knew that it was there if I was home with sick kids, on vacation, etc. Now it won't be. Over on MSN this morning I found this article. I makes me sad that it won't be there when I need a little afternoon getaway. I'm going to miss it!
If I remember correctly,
this is the first (or was it the second?)
of many weddings for Josh & Reva!
