Review: The Fashion Orphans by Randy Susan Meyers and M.J. Rose

The Fashion Orphans by Randy Susan Meyers and M.J. Rose Blurb from Goodreads : Two estranged sisters find that forgiveness never goes out of style when they inherit their mother’s vintage jackets, purses… and pearls of wisdom Estranged half-sisters Gabrielle Winslow and Lulu Quattro have only two things in common: mounds of debt and coils of unresolved enmity toward Bette Bradford, their controlling and imperious recently deceased mother. Gabrielle, the firstborn, was raised in relative luxury on Manhattan’s rarefied Upper East Side. Now, at fifty-five, her life as a Broadway costume designer married to a heralded Broadway producer has exploded in divorce. Lulu, who spent half her childhood under the tutelage of her working-class Brooklyn grandparents, is a grieving widow at forty-eight. With her two sons grown, her life feels reduced to her work at the Ditmas Park bakery owned by

Review: The Christie Affair by Nina de Gramont

The Christie Affair by Nina de Gramont Narrated by Lucy Scott Blurb from Goodreads : A stunning new novel that reimagines the unexplained 11-day disappearance of Agatha Christie that captivated the world. So begins The Christie Affair, told from the point of view of Miss Nan O'Dea, a fictional character but based on someone real. In 1925, she infiltrated the wealthy, rarified world of author Agatha Christie and her husband, Archie. A world of London townhomes, country houses, shooting parties, and tennis matches. Nan O'Dea became Archie's mistress, luring him away from his devoted wife. In every way, she became a part of their world--first, both Christies. Then, just Archie. The question is, why? And what did it have to do with the mysterious eleven days that Agatha Christie went missing? The answer takes you back time, to Ireland, to a young girl in love, to a time before The Great War. To a star-crossed c

Review: Good Girl Complex: An Avalon Bay Novel by Elle Kennedy

Good Girl Complex: An Avalon Bay Novel by Elle Kennedy Blurb from Goodreads : She does everything right. So what could go wrong? Mackenzie "Mac" Cabot is a people pleaser. Her demanding parents. Her prep school friends. Her long-time boyfriend. It's exhausting, really, always following the rules. Unlike most twenty-year-olds, all she really wants to do is focus on growing her internet business, but first she must get a college degree at her parents' insistence. That means moving to the beachside town of Avalon Bay, a community made up of locals and the wealthy students of Garnet College. Mac's had plenty of practice suppressing her wilder impulses, but when she meets local bad boy Cooper Hartley, that ability is suddenly tested. Cooper is rough around the edges. Raw. Candid. A threat to her ordered existence. Their friendship soon becomes the realest thing in

Review: He's with the Band by Julie Stone

He's with the Band by Julie Stone Blurb from Goodreads : What if life gave you a second chance to make a different decision? Divorced 41 year old amateur photographer Campbell will get just that when she’s asked to tour with one of the biggest rock bands 20 years after walking away from them, and the rock-n-roll life.   I enjoyed this a lot -- I could relate to it but it also read very fun and fresh.  This is definitely romantic but that almost took a backseat to the self discovery of the book.  And it is not very sexy/hot at all but if you want a slow burn, this book might be for you.  Definitely recommend and I will be looking for more from this author!! He's With the Band   comes out next week on January 17, 2022  and you can purchase HERE .   "Harrison. Due. You have got to chill on this. It isn't a big deal." "I

Review: Must Love Books by Shauna Robinson

Must Love Books by Shauna Robinson Blurb from Goodreads : Meet Nora Hughes―the overworked, underpaid, last bookish assistant standing. At least for now. When Nora landed an editorial assistant position at Parsons Press, it was her first step towards The Dream Job. Because, honestly, is there anything dreamier than making books for a living? But after five years of lunch orders, finicky authors, and per my last emails, Nora has come to one grand conclusion: Dream Jobs do not exist. With her life spiraling and the Parsons staff sinking, Nora gets hit with even worse news. Parsons is cutting her already unlivable salary. Unable to afford her rent and without even the novels she once loved as a comfort, Nora decides to moonlight for a rival publisher to make ends meet...and maybe poach some Parsons authors along the way. But when Andrew Santos, a bestselling Parsons author no one can
