It has been a long time since I read a romance novel I enjoyed as much as I enjoyed Delilah Green Doesn’t Care by Ashley Herring Blake! This book is the definition of un-put-down-able! I couldn’t keep my mind off of Delilah, Claire, and their whirlwind romance from the first moment I started reading their story.
The characters were cute, and real, and just so easy to root for. And not just Delilah and Claire either, the other characters were really well developed too. Astrid especially. It makes me so, so, so excited that there’s a sequel to this novel about *her* love story (and to a woman!) And the third installment in this series is about Iris?! Blake is feeding us and I am here. for. it.

All That’s Left Unsaid by Tracey Lien is one unique debut. Part literary fiction, part mystery… All That’s Left Unsaid is a hard book to tie down to one particular genre.
While on the outset it hooked me in with its unsolved murder – who killed Denny? And how did no one see it? – it kept my attention, not so much by my need to find out that answer, but by the story Lien wove – and Ky uncovered – of how Denny ended up dead in the first place. What set of circumstances – both his own and those of the people around him – led to Denny’s ultimate death.

The Last to Vanish tells the story of Cutter’s Pass, a small, mountainside town infamously known for the string of disappearing visitors spanning back decades. The protagonist, Abby Lovett, is a relatively new resident to Cutter’s Pass, or that’s what it feels like to her anyways. Despite having lived there for the last 10 years, Abby still feels like an outsider – and like the rest of town is keeping their secrets from her.
But the most recent disappearance, that of Landon West, a reporter investigating the town of Cutter’s Pass, takes the entire town by surprise, Abby included. When Landon’s brother, Trey West, shows up, trying to uncover what led to his brother’s unlikely disappearance, things hidden in Cutter’s Pass begin to shake loose. And it seems like Abby, both insider and outsider, may be the only person able to put all the clues together…

The Lost Apothecary takes place across two different timelines: 1791 and modern-day, and volleys between three protagonists: Caroline, Eliza and Nella. After finding out that her husband was cheating on her, Caroline decides to take what would have been their anniversary trip to London on her own. She joins up with a mudlarking group searching for treasure by the river Thames and comes across an odd object: an old vial with a mysterious marking of a bear on it.
Her curiosity piqued, Caroline begins to research the origin of the vial, and soon finds herself immersed in the history of London circa 1791 – where an unnamed apothecary helped women get revenge on the men who scorned them was whispered about.

I’ve had The Nest sitting on my bookshelf for – and I’m not exaggerating – literal YEARS. My best friend (who I implicitly trust for immaculate book recommendation) gave me her copy after having read it back when it came out. And I still haven’t gotten around to it… 😅
But! Because of this little anecdote, my eyes were immediately drawn to Good Company – Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney’s sophomore novel. So I was very excited when I was able to get my hands on an ARC. Finally, I would have read something by her to tell my friend about!
