It Started with Paris by Cathy Kelly

Of course I had to read this book when I saw that one of my absolute favorite authors, Elin Hilderbrand, enjoyed it so much. I have to agree with Elin, I too, "savored every page." The book is highly character driven, which makes for a fast paced read. The only slight fault I would find… Continue reading It Started with Paris by Cathy Kelly

The Nest by Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney

The Nest will be published on March 22, 2016 by Harper Collins publishers. The Nest is a bit of a wild and honestly written portrayal of a very dysfunctional family and other characters connected to the Plumb family in one way or another.

Actually, the story takes place on a vineyard in Sonoma County, California, so it really did give me the taste for a great glass of vino. A week before her wedding to brilliant… Continue reading Eight Hundred Grapes by Laura Dave

The Cherry Harvest by Lucy Sanna

I'm so glad to have read this book. It reminded me a little bit of Kristin Hannah's The Nightingale, which is also a beautiful WWII story that I have reviewed previously. I had no idea that during WWII, German prisoners of war were used for farm labor in the states, while many of the American… Continue reading The Cherry Harvest by Lucy Sanna
