Poppy and Carise are frustrated. They’re tired of watching the same old cycle: women in their office fall pregnant, leave early and take months off only to eventually return, requesting ‘more flexibility’. All with smug smiles on their faces.
That’s why they create the ‘No Baby Club’ – a Facebook group dedicated to women like themselves who don’t have children, who don’t want children and who simply want to vent about the ‘annoying mummies’ in their lives. They create challenges designed to make sure that childless women reap the benefits, like leaving early for a fake appointment and making one of them pick up the slack for a change. Memberships soar.
But as the group’s tasks get more extreme, Carise starts to worry that they’re taking things too far. On top of that, it seems that not all the new members are being honest and it’s not long before things start to slide disastrously out of control…
I spend my Labour Day reading Those Other Women! So addicting!
What are you currently reading?
Two Truths and a Lie. The girls played it all the time in their tiny cabin at Camp Nightingale. Vivian, Natalie, Allison, and first-time camper Emma Davis, the youngest of the group. The games ended when Emma sleepily watched the others sneak out of the cabin in the dead of night. The last she–or anyone–saw of them was Vivian closing the cabin door behind her, hushing Emma with a finger pressed to her lips.
Now a rising star in the New York art scene, Emma turns her past into paintings–massive canvases filled with dark leaves and gnarled branches that cover ghostly shapes in white dresses. The paintings catch the attention of Francesca Harris-White, the socialite and wealthy owner of Camp Nightingale. When Francesca implores her to return to the newly reopened camp as a painting instructor, Emma sees an opportunity to try to find out what really happened to her friends.
Yet it’s immediately clear that all is not right at Camp Nightingale. Already haunted by memories from fifteen years ago, Emma discovers a security camera pointed directly at her cabin, mounting mistrust from Francesca and, most disturbing of all, cryptic clues Vivian left behind about the camp’s twisted origins. As she digs deeper, Emma finds herself sorting through lies from the past while facing threats from both man and nature in the present.
And the closer she gets to the truth about Camp Nightingale, the more she realizes it may come at a deadly price.
This sounds like it could be a horror movie! Not too far in, but enjoying so far!

What would make the perfect man?
That’s the deliciously racy topic that Jaine Bright and her three girlfriends are pondering one night at their favourite after-hours hot spot: Mr. Perfect. Would he be tall, dark, and handsome? Caring and warmhearted — or will just muscular do?
As their conversation heats up, they concoct a tongue-in-cheek checklist that becomes an overnight sensation, spreading like wildfire at work and sizzling along e-mail lines. But what began as a joke among friends turns deadly serious when one of the four women is murdered.
Turning to her neighbour, an unpredictable police detective, for help, Jaine must unmask a killer to save her friends — and herself. Now, knowing whom to trust and whom to love is a matter of survival — as the dream of Mr. Perfect becomes a chilling nightmare.
I got Mr. Perfect at a book store for $1. It sounds intriguing and the price was right! Has anyone read it?
