So funny, sweet, medium spice. This had me grinning from ear to ear! Maybe not my favorite of hers, but a great romcom to escape into and the Napa setting and cast of quirky characters makes it all the more fun. Releases February 7th and the Target edition will have a bonus chapter with the couple from It Happened One Summer so I‘ll need to own that for sure! First read of February! #arc #BookspinBingo @TheAromaofBooks #romantsy

1word review – Devilish

This quote sums it up perfectly “Playhouses are not like other places. They are a portal, between our realm and countless others.” The story transported me to the world of the theatre and not all the glory of the action on stage but the inner workings and unseen people who bring that glory to life.

Had to keep reminding myself that this wasn't a Jasper Fforde book. Like Thursday Next meets Shades of Gray. I was thoroughly entertained even if it was a bit madcap occasionally.

Esme comes home from work one day to find out that her new next door neighbours are her ex and his new woman. This brings up all the memories of him literally walking out on her four years ago. What's more, it brings up all the feelings and soon Esme and Elliot are sneaking around behind his partner's back.

Quick read - short chapters, but ⬇️

julesG The MC grated on me. Knowing how she felt shortly before the break-up and befriending the ex's partner, why does she still meet him clandestinely?

Great secondary characters - perfect best friend and a neighbour who doles out advice unknowingly!!!

It was so wonderful to return to Australia and Aaron Falk! This time, Falk is on a vacay of sorts and is reminded of a tragic disappearance the prior year. Yet, as he looks a bit further into things, something just does not quite add up. Leave it to this flawed yet patient and honest guy to try and figure out what actually happened. Don‘t blink, or you‘ll miss the clues.

I‘m so glad I snagged an #ARC through #NetGalley from the publisher.

CoverToCoverGirl Great writer. And she not only writes great characters, she makes Australia come alive and jump of the page(s). 5d

I love this one. It's like a cross between Willy Wonka and Cerulean Sea. Lucy receives an invitation to play a game on Clock Island where her favorite author (and his illustrator) lives and writes books for children.

#ARC #Netgalley #Weyward

Loved this new exploration of wise women with a hint of feminism, a finger to the patriarchy and a twist of magical realism. The witches in this book are typical of those accused of witchcraft they have an affinity with nature and knowledge of healing which in a male dominated world is dangerous. They do not have broomsticks or cauldrons.

DGRachel This sounds great! 5d
LeeRHarry Really enjoyed this one too - think it‘s going to be one of this year‘s most popular reads that‘s for sure 😊 5d

This was so much fun. I'm always intrigued by what it's like to work with books from perspectives other than mine (as a public librarian), and this was so flippin' charming. I'm not being condescending, it was simply lovely. Highly recommend.

Thanks to #wwnorton for the #arc.
