Kelly Harms recommends
Morning in This Broken World (2023)
Katrina Kittle
"Katrina Kittle's latest novel puts a moment in our collective memory into a context so comforting, so beautiful, and so hopeful that it is impossible not to look back on that time in a new light. Morning in This Broken World offers an emotional read full of heart-stirring highs and cathartic sorrows. I am buying stock in tissues before this novel comes out."
Paradise Girls (2022)
Sandy Gingras
"As warm and bright as a perfect ocean day, Sandy Gingras's new novel is a confection of dreamy destinations and second-chance joy that swept me up and carried me away. Her charming characters wiggled their way into my heart one after the other, until I was cheering for each and every one--especially a very special dog and his strong, silent owner. Ethereal and enchanting, The Paradise Girls is pure beach delight!"
In Her Boots (2022)
KJ Dell'Antonia
"What can be better than a book that surprises and delights you on every page and yet at the same time speaks so clearly to the familiar joys--and challenges--of friendship, family, and self-discovery?...You'll gobble this one up and then push it on your best friend--and she'll love you for it!"
Everything Must Go (2022)
Camille Pagán
"I will not miss a Camille Pagan novel and this is why: the most relatable women between two covers, the most interesting situations, the most satisfyingly emotional outcomes. Everything Must Go has all of that, with a compassionate woman facing the crossroads between two futures, two men, and two cities - and navigating the nuances of her two beautiful, successful, and overbearing sisters all the while. The family secrets keep unfolding and the pages fly by in this moving, bighearted read!"
Must Love Books (2022)
Shauna Robinson
"A compelling love story, dishy publishing goss, and a chic urban setting? Yes, yes, yes! But like the works she shepherds through publication, Shauna Robinson's true-to-life story of a struggling editorial assistant is much more than the sum of its parts. Within the pages of Must Love Books the lucky reader will find themselves on an poignant journey of a young booklover with too little support and too many dreams--a place we've all been at one point or another. With emotional honesty and a surprising wit that I found addictive, Robinson's debut is everything a book-about-books fan wants in a novel."
For the Love of Friends (2021)
Sara Goodman Confino
"Whether you’ve been a bridesmaid a dozen times or somehow avoided the whole mess, For the Love of Friends is not to be missed. Funny and touching, Sara Goodman Confino has created a story that’s as wild as a good bachelorette party and as romantic as a first dance. I gobbled it up like wedding cake!"
