When the father Nina never knew existed suddenly dies, leaving behind innumerable sisters, brothers, nieces, and nephews, Nina is horrified. They all live close by! They're all-or mostly all-excited to meet her! She'll have to Speak. To. Strangers. It's a disaster! And as if that wasn't enough, Tom, her trivia nemesis, has turned out to be cute, funny, and deeply interested in getting to know her. Doesn't he realize what a terrible idea that is?
Nina considers her potions. 1. Completely change her name and appearance. (Too drastic, plus she likes her hair.) 2. Flee to a deserted island. (Hard pass, see: coffee). 3. Hide in a corner of her apartment and rock back and forth. (Already doing it.)
It's time for Nina to come out of her comfortable shell, but she isn't convinced real life could ever live up to fiction. It's going to take a brand-new family, a persistent suitor, and the combined effects of ice cream and trivia to make her turn her own fresh page.
I absolutely loved this book. It's the kind of book that grabs you from the very first page. I also love the cover of this book. Yes I am one of those people who picks books to read that have pretty or cute covers.
I can totally relate to the character Nina because she is a planner just like me. I love that she works in a bookstore. I thought the book was written very well. I am looking forward to reading more books by this author.
Happy Reading Everyone!

To get into the Christmas season I am reading Christmas Jars by Jason F Wright. I heard that there was a movie playing in some theaters not all a month ago. I didn’t get to see it because it wasn’t playing any where near me. I will be posting a review soon.

Knowing she must return, Amy worries about the only thing worse than pumpkin spice- a reunion with Kit Parker- her childhood best friend, first love, and entire reason for skipping town in the first place. As the two reconnect, a second chance seems possible... if only Kit weren't holding on to a secret that just might unravel everything.
I really enjoyed reading this book. It is the perfect book to read for fall. I did not want the story to end. I thought it was well written. I just love happy endings. I am looking forward to reading more books by this author.
Happy Reading Everyone!
