Ship It Holla Ballas
Jonathan Grotenstein and Storms Reback

What a fast, fun book to read. Even if you have no knowledge about poker, either on line or in casinos, the high energy of the Holla Ballas crew never ends. They come together, misfits most of them, because of their obsessive playing of on line poker, sometimes playing five or six hands at a time. It all depends on how many computer monitors they have to view their games as they make and lose a lot of money. Eventually they end up in Las Vegas, though most of them are too young to play in the casinos. They run amok, spending thousands on alcohol, drugs, cars and lap dancers. How it all plays out makes for quite a story.

Princess Elizabeth's Spy                                               
By Susan Elia

Maggie Hope finishes training to become a spy for MI-5, gathering intelligence from abroad. Instead she is sent undercover to Windsor Castle as a math tutor for Princess Elizabeth as the Prime Minister fears for the royal family's lives. Struggling with disappointment, Maggie must rely on her wits, her skills and her determination to not only figure out who the good guys and bad guys are but deal with a successful kidnapping attempt that could cost a number of lives.  It is a very good read and made me want to read the first Maggie Hope book, Mr. Churchill's Secretary.
