by BWW News Desk - Nov 7, 2016

Jeanette Hubbard's humorous style of suspense writing has been compared to Carl Hiaasen and Janet Evanovich. In this quirky follow-up novel, a chance encounter in a remote forest campground plunges plucky retiree Claudie O'Brien into a vortex of crime, kidnapping, and a marijuana hijacking. A pleasant dinner with Nathan, the gentleman at the next campsite, is disrupted by the arrival of a very loud and a very angry young man. The next morning both Nathan and the man are gone, but Claudie suspects something is not right. No one believes her when she tells them that Nathan might be in danger. It's up to Claudie to connect the dots and find out why Nathan disappeared in the Middle of the Night. Recent Praise for Chasing Nathan: 'Chasing Nathan' has a non-stop plot that celebrates the back roads of the great Northwest, and two saucy seniors who can flirt, fight, and floor the accelerator as the situation demands.' - Chanticleer Reviews Chasing Nathan is available in both print and ebook formats. Book Details: Chasing Nathan By Jeanette Hubbard Publisher: Promontory Press Published: June 2016 ISBN: 978-1987857436 ASIN: B01EW7HWLG Pages: 192 Genre: Humorous, Women's Fiction, Women's Suspense/Mystery For more information about the author or the book visit (more...)

BWW Review: Nothing is Off Limits for Isaac Mizrahi in Café Carlyle Debut DOES THIS SONG MAKE ME LOOK FAT?
by Troy Frisby - Feb 9, 2017

Isaac Mizrahi has a simple question to ask: Does this song make me look fat? Any variation of that prompt is normally a strong cue to walk on eggshells, but making his Cafe Carlyle debut on January 31 with a show named for and based on that query, Mizrahi took a no-holds-barred approach to the human body and just how hilarious and, at times, revolting it can be. After opening the show with a silky-smooth cover of 'Yes' (Kander & Ebb), the fashion designer-cum-cabaret singer dove in headfirst to his fascination of body horror and the body in general. When an audience member protested over the risque-for-the-room subject of 'vodka tamponing,' Mizrahi brushed it off with a sheepish, 'Oh boy, I have some racy stuff coming.' (more...)
