Review: The Star-Crossed Sisters of Tuscany by Lori Nelson Spielman

Due to COVID this was a book whose release date got pushed back a couple of times so to be honest, I forgot about it for my fall reading! It was supposed to come out in September and I thought it would be a great book to close out of late summer reading with. But then it was pushed out until November and I simply forgot about it until I checked my reading calendar and saw it was time to start reading!

Well….I take that back, I saw it was a Book of the Month pick for November and I was so excited because I knew it was coming up sometime soon and when I checked I was like, oh ya this month! So I immediately started reading!

After reading this one, the desire to travel to Tuscany is so intense that I am ready to drop everything and remove myself to Italy for the remainder of the year! Sadly I am stuck here in rainy Oregon, but reading this one, I could almost feel the Tuscan sun on my skin.

Special Feature: The Wrong Kind of Woman by Sarah McCraw Crow

I love books about strong women and this book sounds like it’s going to be a big hit for fans of women’s fiction as well as strong female heroines that face their own personal struggles.

I think the 1960s and 70s were such a pivotal time for women and it sounds like this book is going to capitalize on many of the issues of that time period which sounds exciting.

While I could not fit this book on my review schedule for the fall, I am thrilled that I get to bring you guys a little excerpt. I hope you take a look and enjoy this little sneak peak as much as I did. If you are in a book club this one might be a fun one for your book club to discuss!
