The Echo Wife

The Echo Wife by Sarah Gailey As I say about many books, I probably wouldn't have picked this up if I hadn't heard someone talking about it. The Premise: Evelyn's husband is having an affair...with a clone of Evelyn. But now, the husband is dead and Evelyn and her clone, Martine, have to pick up... Continue Reading →

Girl, Serpent, Thorn

Girl, Serpent, Thorn by Melissa Bashardoust This is the second book I have read by Bashardoust. I think in all honesty, I enjoyed the first - Girls Made of Snow and Glass a bit more, but this one was very good as well. My only complaint is that in a few parts, it felt a... Continue Reading →

Anxious People

Anxious People by Fredrik Backman I can already tell this is going to be one of my favorites for 2021! Similar to A Man Called Ove, Backman tells a sad story with a bunch of laugh out loud humor. The characters are hysterical, yet believable. The premise - a real-estate open house, a bank robbery... Continue Reading →

How The Light Gets In

How the Light Gets In by Louise Penny This is the 9th book in Penny's Inspector Gamache series. There are 16 books in this series so starting it is a commitment. While book 7 still remains my favorite so far, I really enjoyed How the Light Gets In. This installment of the series has us... Continue Reading →

The Late Bloomers Club

The Late Bloomers' Club by Louise Miller A nice, light book to start the new year. Nothing deep, no big plot twist, just a nice story with a bit of family drama and romance. The premise: Nora and Kit are sisters. Nora, the oldest, is the responsible one. She runs the family diner and takes... Continue Reading →

Big Summer

Big Summer by Jennifer Weiner While this clearly looks like a light summer read, there was bit more substance here than I expected. The Premise: Daphne is a plus-size Instagram influencer.  She got her start when a video of her telling off a guy that had been bribed by well meaning friends to flirt with... Continue Reading →

The Secret Life of Bees

The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd The nice thing about having a library in my house is that I fill the shelves with books that sound good to me, but by the time I pick them up, I have forgotten what the premise is.  Since I know the books all intrigued me... Continue Reading →

The Shell Seekers

The Shell Seekers by Rosamunde Pilcher I am a huge fan of another Pilcher book, Winter Solstice.  So when I heard someone mention that she is most known for her 1987 release, The Shell Seekers, I had to check it out. The Premise:  The story is centered around the family of Penelope Keeling, a loving... Continue Reading →

Garden Spells

Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen   I really enjoyed this slightly witch-y book.  I would describe the story as ‘The Language of Flowers’ meets ‘Practical Magic’. The Premise:  At the heart of this story is the Waverley family.  Claire still lives in the family home, tending the garden and using the flowers from the... Continue Reading →

Saint X

Saint X by Alexis Schaitkin If you watch the news, you may have heard similar stories occuring in places such as Aruba and Myrtle Beach...disturbing tales of teenage girls gone missing from vacation locations. The Premise: Alison disappears on the last night of her family vacation on Saint X.  Alison is a college student, vacationing... Continue Reading →
