Unbeknownst to Lizzi, Charlie’s doctors have agreed to allow his sister, Miriam, to take him home to die on the strict understanding he remains in an induced coma, due to his history of assaulting women—a side effect
When I first started on bookstagram, I didn’t know anything about blog tours. The whole bookstagram world was brand new to me. As I started to get my feet wet, I saw some of my friends doing these “tours” and featuring these books that they had read. Not only did the books look great, but I really wanted to help promote for the authors too. Then a really great friend and bookstagrammer who took me under her wing and showed me around introduced me to Suzanne Leopold who runs Suzy Approved Book Tours. I know right now you
I am pleased to be a part of The Unfinished Garden Official Audiobook Blog Tour. This wonderful novel is now finally out on audio and is available now. I was fortunate enough to listen to a copy and enjoy this lovely story for the very first time.

When I started this book all I could think of was that the main character Joel reminded me of a cross between Ove (from A Man Called Ove) and Allan Karlsson (from the 100 Year Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared) and both of those guys I loved, I truly and deeply loved. Its easiest to just start out saying that I give this novel 5 stars. It made me cry. Yes, I cried. I don’t know what it is that has been happening to me lately, I used to be so tough with my reviews.

Jill Shalvis? OK, I’ll read it, sounds pretty good….. So I get a free copy of Jill Shalvis’ upcoming novel The Lemon Sisters while at BookCon because I purchased an older copy of one of her books. (The other book had a cute dog on it, I couldn’t pass it up). Truthfully I hadn’t heard of her, but her books sounded good, so I figured I would give them a try. Being a reviewer, I couldn’t pass

I suspect the most common answer will be no. When I grew up, we had so many disagreements and issues in my small immediate family that at one point we had a running joke that if you looked up the word “dysfunctional” in the dictionary, you would find a photo of us. Here we are years later,

I just finished and I’m speechless. I honestly feel this book had to have been passed over for some kind of awards. I have to be honest; it took me the first 50 pages to really get into the book, and I was hesitant during those pages if I was going to want to continue. Then I couldn’t put it down, it was THAT good.
