      Ladies here are the choices for June:  Voting open until May 26th in order to give people time to get the book. Reading begins June 5th. The book with the most votes win.

      The Chosen One - Carol Lynch Williams  

      Reveals the brutality of a pologamist society through the eyes of Kyra, a 13 year old girl with an inquisitive mind she indulges by sneaking out of the compound to borrow books from a mobile library.  Perhaps that is why the “prophet” of her community decides, despite her tender age, it’s time she wed.  In the midst of a shy flirtation with another disillusioned youth, Kyra is striken when the news is announced-even more so when she learns she is to become the seventh wife of her 60 year old uncle.

      The Diary - Eileen Goudge  

      As their mother nears death, two sisters come upon her diary and discover that the love of her life was not their father.

      The Geometry of Sisters - Luanne Rice  

      Synopsis: Maggie’s new job in a private school brings her to Newport, home to her estranged sister Katherine...and J.D. Blackstone, the man they both love.

      Me and Emma - Elizabeth Flock  

      Synopsis: Eight year old Carrie tries to protect her younger sister from their abusive stepfather.  A book likely to appeal to fans of the book “The Lovely Bones“.

      Relentless - Dean Koontz  

      Cullen “Cubby” Greenwich is a bestselling novelist who has it all- married to the love of his life,
      A genius child, even a great dog.  On the heels of a bad review for his latest book from notoriously reclusive critic Shearman Waxx, Cubby has an accidental encounter with the poison-pen critic. Suddenly life takes a sharp 180-degree turn.  Waxx begins threatening slow and grisly deaths for Cubby’s loved ones. But the seemingly hapless Cubby and his family have more resilience than Waxx realizes-and they are not about to let a bow-tie wearing psychopath destroy everything they hold dear.

      The Undomestic Goddess – Sophie Kinsella  

      Samantha Sweeting, the 29-year-old heroine of Kinsella’s latest confection (after Shopaholic Sister), is on the verge of partnership at the prestigious London law firm Carter Spink—the Holy Grail of her entire workaholic life. But when she finds she has made a terrible, costly mistake just before the partnership decision, she’s terrified of being fired.  

      In a fog, she stumbles out of the building and onto the nearest train, which drops her in the countryside, where she wanders to a stately home. The nouveau riche lady of the house mistakes her for the new housekeeper—and Samantha is too astonished to correct her. Numb and unable to face returning to London, Samantha tries to master the finer points of laundry, cooking and cleaning. She discovers that the slow life, her pompous but good-hearted employers and the attentions of the handsome gardener, Nathaniel, suit her just fine. But her past is hard to escape, and when she discovers a terrible secret about her firm—and when the media learns that the former legal star is scrubbing toilets for a living—her life becomes more complicated than ever.
