Ones to look for today:
The Red Address Book is a recently published novel that is in my TBR pile.
“Written with love, told with joy. Very easy to enjoy.”
—Fredrik Backman, author of A Man Called Ove
“In a reader’s lifetime, there are a few books that will be companions forever. For me, The Red Address Book is one of them. It will comfort you, and remind you of all the moments when you grabbed life with both hands. It is also an homage to the wisdom of women who have lived longer than most of us. One is never too old to learn that love is the only meaning of life—let’s listen to these women.”
—Nina George, author of The Little Paris Bookshop
“A charming, fragile romance.”—Kirkus Reviews
Blue Lightning is an entry in Ann Cleeves’s Jimmy Perez series set on Shetland. This is one of my favorite mystery series. I recommend that you read every one. Jimmy is a well developed character and I always enjoy spending time with him.
Miss You is another in my endless TBR pile.
“If ever a couple was ‘meant to be’ it’s Tess and Gus. This is such a witty, poignant and uplifting story of two lives criss-crossing over the years, with near-miss after near-miss…I couldn’t put it down” (Sophie Kinsella, bestselling author of the Shopaholic series)
“Brilliantly constructed, with wonderful characters you’ll be cheering on, this romantic story is full of poignant moments, has a huge heart and a massive feel-good factor. Engrossing and entertaining.” (Sunday Mirror)
“Debut novelist Eberlen develops two wonderfully distinct storylines, but her characters are carefully connected by proximity and circumstance. . . . Eberlen’s characters are so real and deserving of love-thankfully it’s safe to root for them both, and root for them you will.” (Kirkus )
“Eberlen…excels in creating realistic characters whom readers will adore-including Tess’ unusual sister, Hope; Tess’ sassy best friend, Dolly; and Gus’ impulsive college pal, Nash. Eberlen also shines at keeping the story moving through 16 years of friendship, purpose, and love. Swoon-worthy.” (Booklist (starred review))
“Eberlen’s marvelous debut novel captivates and immerses…. This worthy, wonderful, and witty read is a must-have for all romantics who believe in hope.” (Library Journal)
Sullivan’s Island was the first book that I read by Dorothea Benton Frank. She writes absorbing women’s fiction.
