Wendy Woo and Toni Rose are back and starting this year with the beloved Bridgerton series from Julia Quinn.  At the beginning of each new year, we reflect on what we want and our goals, and many of us turn those into a vision board.  It's helpful to have a clear vision of what we want and what we would like to work past, be it a personal, environmental or situational issue.  Whatever and whenever the case may be, if we want po...

Wendy and Toni are back with Julia Quinn's "An Offer From a Gentleman."  They say a person is no better or worse than another.  Instead of comparing ourselves to others, we should concern ourselves with being a better and happier individual.  You never know who will feel the joy radiating from you, as Benedict did with Sophie, and lead to "the dreams that you wish may come true."  Join the ladies as they discuss...

This episode, Toni and Wendy review Julia Quinn's "The Viscount Who Loved Me."  We are human and we all are afraid of something.  Some fears may stem from little lies like eating watermelon seeds will give us a bigger belly.  Some fears may stem from events forgotten.  Some fears may sound irrational to others, but sound to those who carry the burden.  However the fear may be, ridiculous or frightful, there are ways to ...

Wendy and Toni are back with Julia Quinn's "It's In His Kiss." A sense of accomplishment is a great, smile-all-day feeling once a goal has been met. Whether you want to learn a new language, solve a cryptic message, be a better kisser or have any dream you want realized, a plan should be developed to determine progress towards an achievement. Join the ladies as they discuss how to reach our goals!

Toni and Wendy are back with Julia Quinn's "To Sir Phillip, With Love." Little did Eloise know when she ran off to determine if she and Sir Phillip will suit for marriage that she would also gain his unmanageable twins. But, within a short time, Eloise observes that the twins desperately want attention from their distant yet loving father. Join the ladies as they discuss how to spend quality time with kids.

This episode, Toni and Wendy review Julia Quinn's "Romancing Mister Bridgerton." During the preceding three books in this series, we are intrigued by the mysterious Lady Whistledown. Their identity is revealed and we learn that observing the ton not only produced a gossip sheet, it produced the life's work of the writer for more than ten years. We spend an average of thirteen years and two months at work in our life...

This week, Wendy and Toni are back with Julia Quinn's "When He Was Wicked." A heart-breaking story of true love found and lost. A heart-warming story of moving on and finding love again. Whether we lose our true love, family or friends, jobs or anything we find of any type of value, we are allowed to find solace in our own way. Join the ladies as they discuss some ways on how to move on!

Happily ever after may not be easy to come by, but it's expected for the last unwed Bridgerton in the final book of the Bridgerton series, "On the Way to the Wedding" by Julia Quinn. Love at first sight after seeing a person's neck and back may be a thing, but hopefully it's a two-sided feeling. Sometimes, love doesn't strike fast and hard, but may cause someone to flutter after some conversation. Sometimes,...

For all of us music lovers, we have a treat this month with Julia Quinn's Smythe-Smith Quartet series. This week, Wendy and Toni are back and wish every day is "Just Like Heaven." Sometimes, unfortunately, we may be caught in hellish situations. We then need to take a break from our independent loving selves, and accept or enlist help. Hopefully, help sometimes brings chocolate cake to make the situation somehow appeali...

Wendy and Toni are back with Julia Quinn's "A Night Like This." Some nights end with an aristocrat falling in love at first sight with a governess. Other nights may cause us to change our demographics in order to survive. Whatever the circumstances for change, what we may need to do to adapt or survive will produce a different person. We will develop into someone stronger and wiser, and we will continue to flourish. Joi...

This week, Wendy and Toni are back with Julia Quinn's "The Sum of All Kisses." We are flawed creatures. We make mistakes whether we are energized or sleepy, sober or intoxicated. When we have wronged others, we apologize. Although some incidents may cause lifelong effects, a heartfelt apology, usually, begets a pardon. It may be hard to pardon a wrong, but forgiving someone or oneself can unburden bad feelings towards a...

Wendy and Toni are back to revisit the concept of survival mode with Julia Quinn's "The Secrets of Sir Richard Kenworthy." We are kindly asked to spend more time in our homes these days. We may have four-legged or winged family members who we adore always, and we may have human family members who we adore most of the time. The ladies gave "13 Survival Tricks for Family Gatherings" during their first season, and ...

It's a duel this bonus episode between Toni and Wendy with an arsenal of Bridgerton or Smythe-Smith Quartet books as a weapon. They welcome back guest speaker and friend Tyler Young from last season's popular episode "13 Traps as Old as Time" to judge which of the twelve Julia Quinn masterpieces reigns supreme. Will the ladies do their characters and book justice within each one minute round? Which summary will Tyle...

Wendy and Toni are ecstatic to start Lisa Kleypas's Wallflower series with "Again the Magic." We never know what the future holds for us. We face an ebb and flow of good times and times for growth. During the growth periods, we are great at putting ourselves down and believe we do not deserve our heart's desire. If we take a step back and look at the situation from a different point of view or from a confidant's...

This week, Wendy and Toni are back with "Secrets of a Summer Night" by Lisa Kleypas. When gently-bred women come of age during the Regency era, finding a peer to marry is priority. Making a match is easy when one has grace and beauty. Sometimes, even the most beautiful female members of the ton cannot find a husband because of no dowry. Even with a lack of funds, our heroine is not deterred from the end goal of marriage. Wi...

Wendy and Toni are back with "It Happened One Autumn" by Lisa Kleypas. We wake up and create memories every day. Sometimes, our actions have unfortunate consequences and our conscience nudges us to beg for someone's pardon. Sometimes, we are reluctant to say "I'm sorry" or couple asking for forgiveness with excuses. Whether heartfelt or forced, saying "I'm sorry" can clear your conscience or crea...

This week, Toni and Wendy talk about the most underestimated wallflower and the most notorious rake from "Devin in Winter" by Lisa Kleypas. Some say we cannot change the cards we are dealt in life, and some say we can. We can either play our hand or change the game. Neither is right nor wrong depending on our perspective and circumstance. However we choose to live, we can better our position and move forward. In order to mo...

Toni and Wendy are back to talk about an avid reader and a man with two identities from "Scandal in Spring" by Lisa Kleypas. We are in a period when we have more time to connect with our friends and family. We are able to deepen our relationships through quality time. We are able to fix our relationships through listening and supporting each other. Regardless of the relationship status, whether best friends or individuals o...

This week, Wendy and Toni start a new series with the eccentric Hathaway siblings beginning with a mother hen partnering with wily fox in "Mine Till Midnight" by Lisa Kleypas. Some say opposites attract, some say opposites don't. The "physical endowments" of someone who's unlike our usual cup of tea may be a factor in letting them into our sphere, but what determines continuing the connection? When others wa...

Toni and Wendy are back with the beautiful, well-bred swan longed by the brute horse in "Seduce Me At Sunrise" by Lisa Kleypas. We all have some sort of health issue to some degree, whether mental, physical, emotional or another type. Our issue may be a part of our past, or may stem from our past. Our issue may be a part of our daily life right now, or something we recently overcame. Sometimes, our issue may affect those cl...
