Gimme an F …
Gimme a U …
What’s that spell?
Forks University Fashion Academy was my dream school. And my spoiled little heart was used to getting what I wanted … until now.
Being rescued by the annoyingly gorgeous Dominick Moretti, my sworn enemy per our family’s endless feud, turned my designer life into a nightmare.
I had been minding my own business—pulling a teeny-tiny BAD prank on behalf of my sorority, Beta Alpha Delta—when the fraternity, Delta Iota Kappa caught me. Lucky for me, the DIK who had come to my rescue was none other than Dominick.
We should hate each other. I mean, his family had basically stolen my dad’s business plan, making them rich and creating a grudge deeper than any university rival. But try telling that to my lady bits.
Suddenly, everything seemed so last season compared to being with him.
I’d had no idea fraternizing with the enemy would prove to be more dangerous than running in six-inch stilettos.
Walking away from our families was the only way to be together … but was I ready to trade my comfortable life of luxury for a chance at love?

There’s a slightly creepy and definitely weird piece of art on my wall. The print caught my eye at a local festival a few years back, and I bought it because it intrigued me.
My kids hated it when I hung it on the wall, but my tastes haven’t gotten less eclectic since. (Sorry, not sorry, nerdlings.)
I obsessed over the details. I wondered why the angel woman was headless and whose much larger hand was on her stomach? Was he human? Another angel? Why was he touching her at all? Was the owner of that hand a good guy? Why would she be a statue? And why would she be a headless statue after that?I don’t know the real story. But my brain wouldn’t let go of the image and decided to start making up its own story that began with an angel statue. And Where Angels Can’t Follow was born

Title: All Visible Things Author: Brian McPhee Genre: Cultural Heritage Fiction Rating: 5 of 5 stars
All Visible Things is an excellent book to get lost in.
When doctorate candidate Lauren Patterson uncovers pages from the journal of Paolo del Rosso, she couldn’t guess that her find would reveal secrets of the great artist and inventor Leonardo Da Vinci. Nor would she have known it would kick up a thirst for the mystery of what lay within its sheets.
Brain McPhee artfully creates our hero, Paolo del Rosso, through pages and pages of diary entries. And although we are only experiencing him ‘second hand’ through-out our story, he always feels very much at the forefront of our attention. His crafting, so well done, he’s often the arbiter of our views and our most trusted narrator, despite him being long dead and merely a study subject.
