Free Fridays
Free Fridays: A Novel | Pat Tucker
191 posts | 1 read | 1 to read
A provocative contemporary romance that poses complex questions about modern marriage: How much time should a couple remain together before they can call their marriage a success? Why does divorce automatically mean failure? And can the institution of marriage evolve with our changing times? For Leela and Riley Franklin, the seven-year itch is an all too real phenomenon. After they celebrate their eighth wedding anniversary, and witness some of their closest friends calling it quits, the two agree to try something unorthodox to avoid going down the same predictable path. That’s when Free Fridays is born. The last Friday of every month is free: Leela and Riley get an unconditional free pass. They can do whatever they want, with whomever, wherever, with no questions asked, the one rule being that there are no strings attached. At first, it seems like the perfect arrangement. Both Leela and Riley are enjoying their cake as they get to eat it, too. But it doesn’t take long before trouble rears its ugly head. Soon, they realize that you can’t always get what you want but sometimes—that’s okay.

1. Being able to drive and go for short walks as I recover from surgery. Sometimes it‘s the little things...
2. So hard! So many places I‘ve loved. If I absolutely have to pick, Exmoor National Park in England. Or the Peak District. Or north Georgia mountains. Western North Carolina...
3. Tough choices today! Actually, I‘ll skip both for a peach pie.
4. Yes! Lunch out tomorrow, and I‘m singing one of my faves on Sunday.

1. Completing a work task that has taken about three months to get done
2. Anywhere on a cruise ship
3. Apple pie
4. Yes and no. I‘m on call and I have to do some reorganization at work with my team on Sunday, but at least I get to spend the majority of the weekend with my family.

chaoticgoodhufflepuff That‘s a long project! Congratulations! 🎉 1mo
Slajaunie I hate things like being on call. It makes me feel as if I can‘t relax or do anything too involved. 1mo
bewareofwords I love cruises too! So much fun. Have you had a favorite cruise destination?🚢 1mo
Sresendez12 @bewareofwords no favorite destination, but I‘ve done some really fun excursions in different places. The best one was in Progresso and was a bar hop. 1mo

1. I didn't kill a single customer, although many, many of them deserved it.
2. Las Vegas
3. Strawberry shortcake, but if given a wider choice, I'd prefer key lime pie
4. Friday off, chillin and catching up on my reading, maybe seeing the movie Stuber
5. Consider it done 👍👍

#friyayintro @howjessreads

Megabooks Yum! Key lime pie! 1mo
RamsFan1963 @Megabooks Its my all time favorite dessert. One of the first things I check at a new restaurant is their dessert menu for key lime pie, always on the hunt for the ultimate pie. 1mo
KathyWheeler @RamsFan1963 I do that too! And I judge the restaurant on the quality of that key lime pie too.😊 1mo

1. Harry Potter (of course), though I have others that I like.
2. I‘m not a big condiment person, but ketchup tops the list.
3. Maybe not any more, but I used to say fear of bees. Got stung for the first time a few years ago and that actually helped the fear a bit.
4. One younger brother.

1. To Kill A Mockingbird for sure. That was the best one-although I‘m pretty sure I would have read it on my own at some point. 2. Light green with a sea turtle on it. 3. Watched 2 episode of community last night, but the last actual binge was the West Wing-just finished it a couple weeks ago. I‘m not much of a tv watcher these days. 4. Nifflers are adorable. Otherwise, werewolves? #friyayintro @howjessreads

2- ?. If you mean any food I‘ve ever eaten at a restaurant, I‘m partial to Cracker Barrel country fried steak and hash brown casserole .
3- I met Al Roker back when he was still a Cleveland weatherman. He was wearing bib overalls and was at a thing called Yankee Peddler Festival. I chased him down to talk to him. He was very friendly.
4- no clue. I never keep track of what book I read in what month.

I‘m so not a selfie person and I honestly don‘t have any on my phone - I had to go hunting for this one 😂 But a favorite of mine even though it‘s 3 years old. My dad and I at a Steeler game. It was a cold one but oh so fun. Looking at this picture makes me kinda miss my long hair (last year I cut 9 inches off) but I don‘t regret the shorter hair. More manageable with less effort 😂

#friyayintro @howjessreads

monalyisha Long hair + cold weather is the worst! I used to get mine caught around my jacket buttons on the reg. Don‘t miss that at all! 9mo
IheartYA So that's what you look like. 😁 I love having shorter hair. It's so much easier. I rarely grow it as long as it is now, past my shoulders. Grew it out for a wedding last May and kept it. 9mo
TheDaysGoBy @IheartYA Yeah I‘ve been pretty terrible about getting you a picture of me. 😂 I do like the shorter hair. I think I‘ll be keeping it at least for a while 9mo

EchoLogical @CoffeeNBooks Yeah I downloaded it to be able to assist people at work but honestly, I‘m not impressed. The layout isn‘t user friendly at all and my library doesn‘t usually have a good selection of materials available. I will say that I discovered NK Jemisin‘s Broken Earth trilogy through RBDigital so it‘s not a total wash. 13mo
