In the riveting new novel from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of First Comes Love and Something Borrowed, three very different people must choose between their family and their values.

Nina Browning is living the good life after marrying into Nashville’s elite. More recently, her husband made a fortune selling his tech business, and their adored son has been accepted to Princeton. Yet sometimes the middle-class small-town girl in Nina wonders if she’s strayed from the person she once was.

Tom Volpe is a single dad working multiple jobs while struggling to raise his headstrong daughter, Lyla. His road has been lonely, long, and hard, but he finally starts to relax after Lyla earns a scholarship to Windsor Academy, Nashville’s most prestigious private school.

Amid so much wealth and privilege, Lyla doesn’t always fit in—and her overprotective father doesn’t help—but in most ways, she’s a typical teenage girl, happy and thriving.

Then, one photograph, snapped in a drunken moment at a party, changes everything. As the image spreads like wildfire, the Windsor community is instantly polarized, buzzing with controversy and assigning blame.

At the heart of the lies and scandal, Tom, Nina, and Lyla are forced together—all questioning their closest relationships, asking themselves who they really are, and searching for the courage to live a life of true meaning. (Goodreads)

Confession: I've never read a book by Emily Giffin before.

Seriously.


I've wanted to read something by her for a while now,
and I believe I even have some of her books on my TBR, but have never checked them out. All We Ever Wanted sounds like a good place to start,
and I'm really looking forward to checking it out!!

From New York Times bestselling author Elin Hilderbrand, comes a novel about the many ways family can fill our lives with love...if they don't kill us first.

It's wedding season on Nantucket. The beautiful island is overrun with summer people--an annual source of aggravation for year-round residents. And that's not the only tension brewing offshore. When one lavish wedding ends in disaster before it can even begin--with the bride-to-be discovered dead in Nantucket Harbor just hours before the ceremony--everyone in the wedding party is suddenly a suspect. As Chief of Police Ed Kapenash digs into the best man, the maid of honor, the groom's famous mystery novelist mother, and even a member of his own family, the chief discovers that every wedding is a minefield--and no couple is perfect. Featuring beloved characters from THE CASTAWAYS and A SUMMER AFFAIR, THE PERFECT COUPLE proves once again that Elin Hilderbrand is the queen of the summer beach read. (Goodreads)

Confession #2: I've never read anything by Elin Hilderbrand either!

Gasp! I know, right?

I've had quite a few of her books on my TBR for a while now as well, and I keep meaning to read them, because they all sound like great summer reads, but I've never had a chance to read them. I'm hoping to change that soon, starting with The Perfect Couple!!


And those are my WOW picks for this week, the Chick Lit Edition!
I absolutely can't wait to read these books this summer.
I hope they are great!!

  3. I am excited about both of these as well!! I can't believe you haven't read either of these authors!!!! I got an ARC of All We Ever Wanted and it was excellent. Highly recommended. BUT you HAVE to read Something Borrowed and Something Blue. Must read Giffin books!!! Elin's are hit or miss for me--I either LOVE them or I don't. I loved The Blue Bistro. I'm super excited for this new one too!
