Jenn McKinlay recommends
Peril in Pink (2024)
(Hudson Valley B&B Mystery, book 1)
Sydney Leigh
"Peril in Pink is a hilarious romp of a mystery with a smart and sassy amateur sleuth in a bed and breakfast setting to die for. Highly recommend!"
Recipe for a Charmed Life (2024)
Rachel Linden
"Recipe for a Charmed Life is actually a recipe for a magically marvelous read about expectations, second chances, and following your heart. Rachel Linden writes complicated and compelling characters that are as relatable as they are likeable. I enjoyed every bit of this delightful novel."
Main Character Energy (2023)
Jamie Varon
"Main Character Energy absolutely dazzled me from the opening scene until the very last page. Poppy Banks is an immensely relatable and likable heroine on a journey of self-discovery with the potential to achieve her dreams and live her very best life in the French Riviera. Needless to say, I was hooked! I read this wonderful novel compulsively and with great joy. Highly recommend!"
