As a younger reader, I had a really hard time with women’s fiction. I felt too young to relate to any of the characters and like I could never fully understand or realize their struggles. But I also felt like I was too old for the YA genre—at least at that time.
Now that I am almost forty, I feel like I can finally appreciate women’s fiction in its entirety so lately I’ve been really open to this genre and enjoying it so much!
Sheila Roberts is a fairly well known author to me. I haven’t read any of her books, but I have seen them quite a bit in bookstores as well as grocery store end caps. Not to mention a few of her books have been turned into Hallmark Channel and Lifetime movies.
This is an author who clearly has a large fan base, so when this book came up for review, I was eager to see what all the fuss was about! Continue reading “Review: The Summer Retreat (Moonlight Harbor #3) by Sheila Roberts”
RaeAnne Thayne is a newer to me author. I have only just started reading her books this year but so far I have loved them! She is such a strong and seasoned writer and that experience shows in her stories.
When this one came up for review, I was on board not only because I have enjoyed her books, but I was also looking for something a little lighter to break things up.
Lately I have been reading a lot of thrillers and more heavy duty novels, and not that she writes fluff (far from it) but there is something so satisfying about a book with a happy ending! Continue reading “Review: The Cliff House by RaeAnne Thayne”
Jill Santopolo was an author that I wanted to read long before this book! I received an ARC of her THE LIGHT WE LOST a couple years ago and I just couldn’t fit it into my review schedule.
I still continue to eye THE LIGHT WE LOST whenever I am looking for something to read. It sounds like such a beautiful story, but for some reason, it just never makes its way onto my nightstand.
Then MORE THAN WORDS came up for review and I wasn’t about to let this opportunity pass me by a second time. I have heard people rave about her books so I was excited to start this one. Not to mention the cover is elegant and interesting so that was an added bonus. Continue reading “Review: More Than Words by Jill Santopolo”

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.
