Special Feature: MORE THAN WORDS by Jill Santopolo

I have this book up for review but not until March 8th. But I wanted to get this info out there for all of you do you can be sure to add this book to your TBR list!

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Light We Lost, Jill Santopolo, comes her much anticipated second novel MORE THAN WORDS (Putnam; on sale Feb 5).

Response to The Light We Lost was phenomenal. It was a Reese Witherspoon Book Club pick, a Belletrist and Skimm Reads pick, and New York Times and international bestseller that’s been translated into more than 35 languages. Advance praise (below) for MORE THAN WORDS – yet another tender and moving story set in NYC, about a woman at a crossroads after the death of her father, and caught between the love of two men – shows that the new novel is also uniquely memorable and simply extraordinary, and again comes from a deep place in Jill’s heart:

It was written after my father died in a car accident and while many people I care a lot about were fighting cancer. It was also written while I was falling in love. I think you’ll see pieces of all those emotions in this story—the mixture of love and loss, of despair and hope, and, ultimately, of peace and self-discovery and the knowledge that sorrow and joy can coexist in our hearts, that we can live and love even as we mourn.

Review: One Day in December by Josie Silver

One of my absolute favorite holiday movie is Love Actually. I watch it every year and it never gets old no matter how cheesy and unrealistic is it.

My favorite couple David (Hugh Grant) and Natalie (Martine McCutcheon) followed closely by Juliet (Kira Knightly) and Mark (Andrew Lincoln). So when I saw this book so heavily compared to Love Actually and the Juliet/Mark couple, I was eager to read it.

It was my December Book of the Month pick and truth be told I almost passed on all the books for December on BOTM but, I saw so many excellent reviews about this one and decided at the last minute…..why not?

Laurie is pretty sure love at first sight doesn’t exist anywhere but the movies. But then, through a misted-up bus window one snowy December day, she sees a man who she knows instantly is the one. Their eyes meet, there’s a moment of pure magic…and then her bus drives away. Continue reading “Review: One Day in December by Josie Silver”

COVER REVEAL: THE SOUTHERN SIDE OF PARADISE (Peachtree Bluff #3) by Kristy Woodson Harvey

I’ve been reading Woodson Harvey’s books for a couple of years now and I absolutely adore them! She writes with such style and grace that I never get tried of the plot, characters, or setting!

From internationally bestselling author and “rising star of Southern fiction” (Mary Alice Monroe, New York Times bestselling author) Kristy Woodson Harvey comes the third novel in her Peachtree Bluff series, in which a secret threatens the tight-knit bond between a trio of sisters and their mother.

With the man of her dreams back in her life and all three of her daughters happy, Ansley Murphy should be content. But she can’t help but feel like it’s all a little too good to be true.

Meanwhile, youngest daughter and actress Emerson, who is recently engaged and has just landed the role of a lifetime, seemingly has the world by the tail. Only, something she can’t quite put her finger on is worrying her—and it has nothing to do with her recent health scare.

When two new women arrive in Peachtree Bluff—one who has the potential to wreck Ansley’s happiness and one who could tear Emerson’s world apart—everything is put in perspective. And after secrets that were never meant to be told come to light, the powerful bond between the Murphy sisters and their mother comes crumbling down, testing their devotion to each other and forcing them to evaluate the meaning of family.

With Kristy Woodson Harvey’s signature charm, wit, and heart, The Southern Side of Paradise is another masterful Peachtree Bluff novel that proves she is a “Southern writer with staying power” (Booklist).

One of the hottest new Southern writers.” —Parade.com

Review: Dear Santa by Nancy Naigle

It’s November first and I am in full holiday mode. I’m on of those obnoxious people that starts decorating and shopping for Christmas immediately following Halloween.

I started my holiday reading a little early this year (normally I wait until after Halloween) since there were a lot of holiday books coming out. This is one that I had my eye on, mostly because it sounded like it was going to be an epistolary novel. 

Angela Carson wants nothing more than to be the third-generation to run her family’s holiday store, Heart of Christmas, successfully. They’ve weathered over sixty tourist seasons, major hurricanes, and urban sprawl, in their old decommissioned lighthouse. But the national chain that set up shop in their small North Carolina town of Pleasant Sands may be more than Heart of Christmas can survive. Continue reading “Review: Dear Santa by Nancy Naigle”
