Skid by Rene Gutteridge


This was a very fun and exciting read. Although it had many funny parts, it still had enough action in it to keep my attention. I really enjoyed it.



GREAT NEWS! I have one copy of Skid to give away to one lucky commenter. Leave me a comment telling me a joke or something funny and I will put you in a drawing for this wonderful book. Drawing will be June 7th.


About this Book:

Blissfully unaware that Atlantica Flight 1945 from Atlanta to Amsterdam is about to make aviation history, First Officer Danny McSweeney focuses his energies on navigating the turbulent personalities of an eccentric female captain, a co-pilot with a talent for tactless comments and conspiracy theories, and a lead flight attendant with an outsized attitude that definitely exceeds the limits for carry-on baggage.


On the other side of the cockpit door, the unscheduled in-flight entertainment includes a potbellied pig, a jittery diamond courier, and the recently jilted Lucy Meredith, whose personal mantra of “What Would Oprah Do?” will be challenged by the sudden appearance of her ex and his new traveling partner. On her left sits Hank Hazard, whose unusually polite but constant requests–prompted by his covert role as a spy for the airline–test the limits of the crew’s customer service. But as Lucy and the rest of the crew discover, Hank’s odd behavior is linked to a quiet faith that may play a key role in the fate of everyone on board. Especially when an unexpected traveler sets this already bumpy flight on a course toward the unfriendly skies.


About the Author:


Rene Gutteridge is the author of twelve novels, including the Boo series, the Storm series, and the novelization for The Ultimate Gift, as well as Scoop and Snitch, the first two Occupational Hazard novels. She lives with her husband, Sean, and their two children in Oklahoma City.

Is It Summer Yet?


I can tell that my kids are ready to get out of school. The meltdowns that we are having every single morning tell me that they are ready to sleep late and hang out with mom.


Yesterday, J (son, 12) had his meltdown because his alarm did not go off at 6 and he didn't wake up until 6:30. Now, those of you who have had the pleasure of having my son sleep over know that he is up at the crack of dawn. If he doesn't get up when he wants to, woe to those who are around him. Yes, he had plenty of time to get ready, but he missed his show at 6 and that is catastropic to him.


This morning it was darling K (daughter, 8) who had on daisy duke shorts that I vetoed. She was not happy with me that I wanted her to wear shorts that cover her bottom. Darn that mom!LOL


The last two mornings, I left early to take them to school, simply because they were driving me bonkers. Am I a bad mom for wanting to only slow down and push them out of the van while driving by? I didn't do that, but I am just saying.....


Thank God it is just one more week. What are ya'll up to?
