Last year, I read Have You Seen Luis Velez? It made my 2019 Top Ten list, so I knew without a doubt I needed to read Brave Girl, Quiet Girl by Catherine Ryan Hyde. The author delivered a gripping, heartwarming tale of motherhood, acceptance and friendship.
Travel to Italy from your couch and become swept up in the story of three women and the curse that haunts them in The Star-Crossed Sisters of Tuscany by Lori Nelson Spielman. Heartfelt and engaging, I was completely transported.
Wrong Side of Forty by Jana Deleon is the first novel in Marina at Midlife trilogy. This was a small-town cozy with humor, a quest, and character growth that I quickly devoured.
I bought My Oxford Year by Julia Whelan on audio when it released without even reading the synopsis primarily to support Whelan whom I love as a narrator. And, of course, it sat on my Audible App for far too long.
Are you looking for a fun, quirky story with a loveable bookish character. One filled with family, friends and a little awkward romance? Then you need to grab, The Bookish Life of Nina Hill by Abbi Waxman. I adored Nina and hope you will too!
Bette Lee Crosby’s. stories stay with me long after I’ve closed the book. Such was the case with Emily, Gone. Grab your tissues, some wine, and turn off your phone. Travel with me to 1971 and the sleepy town of Hesterville, Georgia.
The Sugarhouse Blues by Mariah Stewart is the second book in the Hudson Sisters series and it was delightful to return to this small Pennsylvania town as the sisters Allie, Des, and Cara, work to restore the Sugarhouse theater. Cute dogs, wicked banter, and family gave way to growth and bonding.
Love and Other Words written by Christina Lauren and narrated by Erin Mallon, delivered a captivating, heartwarming and poignant story that had me vested from the first chapter. Come meet Elliot and Macy.
