Erika Montgomery recommends
The Bookshop by the Bay (2023)
"Set in a coastal town so charming you'll wish it was your own, and filled with characters so warm and familiar you'd gladly call them friends, The Bookshop by the Bay has all the ingredients of a perfect beach read. As refreshing as an ocean breeze, and brimming with heart, readers will savor this sparkling story of friendship, family, new love, and the unique magic that can only be found in coming home again."
The Last Carolina Girl (2023)
"While readers will surely find all of the characters in Meagan Church's debut compelling, the true beating heart of The Last Carolina Girl is its fourteen-year-old protagonist: a girl tied deeply to her natural landscape whose abrupt uprooting after the death of her beloved father comes with devastating consequences. Leah Payne and her indefatigable spirit will break your heart and put it back together again. I tore through this haunting and emotional story."
The Pilot's Daughter (2021)
"Shifting effortlessly between two time periods, Jaeger weaves a poignant and suspenseful tale, building a layered mystery while she draws us deep into the deliciously glitzy and often dangerous world of Jazz Age New York. But it is the tender and endearing bond between Ellie and Iris that is the beating heart of this propulsive novel--their connection so heartfelt and authentic that makes it easy to root for both women as they journey to find answers--and forgiveness. I won't soon forget Ellie or Iris, and though I raced through the pages to the satisfying end, I did so conflicted--I so didn't want to give up their company!"
