Margot from the good life
The Summer of Sunshine and Margot by Susan MalleryThe Baxter sisters come from a long line of women with disastrous luck in love. But this summer, Sunshine and Margot will turn disasters into destiny…
As an etiquette coach, Margot teaches her clients to fit in. But she’s never faced a client like Bianca, an aging movie star who gained fame—and notoriety—through a campaign of shock and awe. Schooling Bianca on the fine art of behaving like a proper diplomat’s wife requires intensive lessons, forcing Margot to move into the monastery turned mansion owned by the actress’s intensely private son. Like his incredible home, Alec’s stony exterior hides secret depths Margot would love to explore. But will he trust her enough to let her in?
Sunshine has always been the good-time sister, abandoning jobs to chase after guys who used her, then threw her away. No more. She refuses to be “that girl” again. This time, she’ll finish college, dedicate herself to her job as a nanny, and she 100 percent will not screw up her life again by falling for the wrong guy. Especially not the tempting single dad who also happens to be her boss.
Master storyteller Susan Mallery weaves threads of family drama, humor, romance and a wish-you-were-there setting into one of the most satisfying books of the year!
Monday 8/19 Margot Kelley on the History of Homesteading
Happy new year everyone! How are we all feeling about the year ahead? There are still some changes to be made to the website; some subtle colour changes to accommodate the new logo and some tweaks that are bound to arise with changing things after eight years. When I was pregnant we were convinced it was a girl and I was wracking my brains for a good name. Calling for Rupert and Margot in the park sounds a bit wanky! I really like that it could be the title of a film or a play… maybe one day it will be!
DimPrawn is a fount of knowledge. TimberWolf is too good to be a permie. Arturo Bassick has no reputation. Churchill has more data than eek. Zoiderman has no reputation.
On his 40th birthday to be precise, Tom Good decides that he's had enough of the rat race and that he and wife Barbara will become self-sufficient. The pair convert their garden into a farm, get in the pigs and chickens, grow their own crops and on one memorable occasion, try to dye their own wool with nettles. Tom and Barbara would just be lone loons were it not for their neighbours, the henpecked Jerry Leadbetter and wife Margot, a social climber who cannot bear chickens wandering the back garden.
