We’re back from our unplanned summer break and ready to discuss Leesa Cross-Smith’s Whiskey & Ribbons. Like ogres and onions, this book’s got LAYERS and we dig into ’em.

Why is everyone keeping secrets from Loretta? Why is Evangeline so annoying in Eamon’s POV? And what the hell is Frances’ whole deal?

Along with discussion of the book, we talk #cockygate and copyright law, Michelle Obama’s upcoming memoir (or is it autobiography?) and the stress Stephen King’s reflections on mortality keeps causing us.

This whole episode was inspired by our listeners’ excitement for its release. So now we want to know: What books are you looking forward to in the second half of 2018? As always, follow us on Twitter at @blackchicklit to take part in the next #BCLChat.

Thanks for listening and be sure to rate, review and subscribe to us on iTunes. Thanks to Suite45 for our theme song, Jones’n.
