Gossip, the 8th deadly sin? 🗣️🗣️

I can totally see & hear Fremlin‘s novels as 60‘s era films! Love her writing, especially the ability to depict how women are constantly juggling the many hats they wear. (Sometimes they fall off. 🫣)

Cathythoughts Great review 👏🏻👏🏻💫😁 1mo

LeahBergen Great review! I feel another Fremlin coming on soon. 😆 1mo

Ahhhh yes. It‘s a delight to ignore housekeeping tasks in someone else‘s home. MC also mentions the chief attraction of the laundromat is 20 minutes of uninterrupted guilt free reading. 😆 Spot on!

LeahBergen Ooo! I just received this in the mail (from my last Book Depository splurge 😆). 1mo
Cathythoughts Spot on ! ( and off , 🙈🤣 1mo

Just when we thought it was safe to go outside. 😩 Super windy and snowing. This week we had a false summer, completely skipping spring. Oh those savage & cruel gods of April.

I am diving into Fremlin with a cup of hot tea. I‘ve read the first couple of pages and I keep wondering how have I missed her books all these years? So good!

Kshakal It is also snowing here… so over it!! 2mo
Tamra @Kshakal ridiculous isn‘t it?! 2mo
Kshakal @Tamra extremely ridiculous! 2mo

Cathythoughts Snow ! Good heavens. I‘d love some , but I know when you‘re ready for a change of seasons .. that‘s different. I hope you love the Fremlin as much as I did. 2mo
jewright It was so cold this weekend. I think I had adjusted to the heat because I was freezing even with the heat running and blankets. 2mo
