Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I write about books, food, wine and my pets.  Come hang out with me.

You Were Always Mine by Nicole Baart

You Were Always Mine by Nicole Baart

HAPPY publication day @nicolebaart for this absolutely magnificent new book you have brought into this world. 💕

I am beyond thrilled to be part of Nicole’s street team for this release - and to have had the chance to read this book early. This is, without question, a time when the pleasure of being a part of a book launch is ALL MINE. 💕

Where to even start with this book? I adored that this was a mix of mystery, character drama and family drama all mixed into one perfectly baked treat. I LOVED the tiny snippets of detail sprinkled at the beginning of each chapter that are breadcrumbs to unraveling the larger picture, and that lift the veil the more you learn. I am entirely enamored with Nicole for building this story around a family with a biological and adopted child, and addressing some of the very complex dynamics of that mix. Most importantly, I am still floored by how the end of the story turned out, because I just didn’t see it coming. 💕

To back up, JUST a smidge, the synopsis: Jess Chamberlain is newly separated and living with her two sons in a small town. She cannot begin to believe that a tragedy in another state could be related to her, until her entire world is laying shattered at her feet, and she is left to piece together a trail of clues that horrifyingly seem to lead back to her seven year old adopted son, Gabe. 💕

This one is just well done, period. Well paced, with complicated characters who aren’t easy to sort out, and a mystery that you want to untangle. I would be lying if I said I could put it down. I couldn’t. 💕

Get this one on your fall reading list friends. It’s exactly the kind of book the doctor ordered. 💕

Congratulations again Nicole - you deserve all the praise coming your way. Cheers my friend. 🍸

Happy Tuesday! 🍸🍸🍸
