#30Seconds Book Club: On August 9 We’ll Discuss “Pink Slips” by Beth Aldrich!

We’re very excited about our first book club pick, "Pink Slips," by our very own 30Seconds contributor, Beth Aldrich!

  • What’s the book about? "Pink Slips" tells a spine-tingling and harrowing story of survival, friendship, doggedness and love. The inimitable power of the relationship between Betsy Ryan and her beloved dog, Barney, gives this suspense thriller soft spots to counter the uncertainty and intense action.
  • Who’s the author? Beth is a Chicago-based mom of three and award-winning author of "Real Moms Love to Eat," a personal concierge and health counselor. Her favorite cheat food is Phish Food ice cream with banana and whipped cream. See all of Beth's 30Seconds tips!
  • When are we chatting about it? We'll discuss the book during our first Book Club chat on August 9 at 8 p.m. CT, live on Twitter! Watch Beth on 30Seconds Live!

"Aldrich’s book delivers a solidly structured and detail-filled plot that starts with a skillful, early buildup of suspense. Like an Agatha Christie novel, the novel makes efficient use of misdirection while adding several suspicious suspects to the mix. The characters are vividly drawn and believable. The story features an appealing and creative narrative voice." – BlueInk Review

"Beth Aldrich’s 'Pink Slips' is a psychological thriller that sustains a sense of mystery throughout, told from the point of view of pregnant suburban chef Betsy Ryan. The first-person perspective helps build suspense and heightens the action through the story’s many twists and turns." – 4-Star Foreword Clarion Reviews

"Not since 'Rosemary’s Baby' has a book revealed how vulnerable women are when pregnant … Aldrich has Raymond Chandler’s ('The Lady in the Lake'), gift for portraying violent scenes, but has a woman’s insight into the especially serious consequences it could have for pregnant women." – 5-Star, Indie Reader Review

"Atmospheric and chilling with a feisty and relatable Every-Mom heroine, 'Pink Slips' will keep you in suspense until the gripping climax." – Eve Adamson, nine-time New York Times bestselling collaborator

Started reading "Pink Slips" over the weekend, and it pulls you in from the first page. Betsy Ryan is a chef, so I immediately had her pictured as Chef Gigi Gaggero ,even after I found out she has blonde hair. :-) Has anyone else started it yet?
Ann Marie Gardinier Halstead
YES! I need to know how this story ends!
