OK, Here it is, my first book review:

HOUSEWIVES STUMBLE INTO CRIME FROM 1960s
Friday Afternoon Club is hip deep in Crime & Clutter

(NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE) Friday Afternoon Club member Mary Alice keeps a perfect house, cooks perfect meals, and documents everything about her perfect world in her coordinated scrapbooks. Therefore, everyone is astounded to learn that she's hiding a decrepit 1963 Volkswagen mini-bus that she refuses to talk about. It doesn't take long before M-A's secret is out. She's a flower child, born on a commune to hippie parents. The van is all M-A has left of her father. But as the gang helps her sift through the junk, they stumble upon a deeper mystery. Set in both the present day and the turbulent 1960's, Cyndy Salzmann takes her readers along on a journey filled with as many twists and surprises as there are recipes and household tips. The novel is full of hints such as how to create a sweet-smelling house using vinegar, baking soda, and soaked cotton balls. It even has recipes ranging from Vegetarian Lentil Stew to Pesto Cheesecake. And, of course, the chocolate recipes enjoyed by the FAC girls.

Author Bio: Cyndy Salzmann is a member of the National Association of Professional Organizers and the author of three nonfiction books on home management, one of which focuses on getting rid of clutter. She speaks nationally on the topic of home management and has a weekly radio spot airing on Moody station WDLM. Her novels celebrate life while making her readers laugh at the dilemmas faced by millions of modern women.

For some reason, the picture wouldn't go on. I have a picture of the cover and author as well. I'll see what I can do. :)

That is so awesome that a publisher has asked you to review books for them. I cannot wait until you publish your own book someday...I think that will happen in the not-so-distant future. You are a very good writer. Have a great day!
