I'm going to keep this site current with what I'm reading at the time, but there were some great books released this spring, so I'm compiling a list to get you started.
Change of Heart by Jodi Picoult: Picoult always examines the tough issues, and this one's no exception. In a nutshell: When her daughter's killer wants to donate his organs after his execution to her ailing surviving daughter, a mother wrestles with his offer.
Deep Dish by Mary Kay Andrews: Another fun and frothy Southern-spiked offering from MK. In a nutshell: To get her own show on the cooking network, a beauty queen turned chef must face off with a rugged outdoor cook.
The Girl Who Stopped Swimming by Joshilyn Jackson: Jackson's previous two novels were more Southern heavy, while this one's a bit more mystical. In a nutshell: After finding the body of her daughter's friend in the backyard pool, a mother searches for answers and must examine her carefully crafted life.
Loving Frank by Nancy Horan: I came to this one late, resisting it at first. After so many good reviews, I couldn't ignore it any longer. It will most likely make my "favorite books of the year" list. This is a must read! In a nutshell: A fictionalization of the life of Frank Lloyd Wright's mistress and look inside their tumultuous love story.

My book club picked Loving Frank for August. Sounds good.
Thanks for stopping by. I can't wait to hear what you think about the book!
Thanks for the review of Loving Frank. I got interested in reading this after visiting Taleisin West in Arizona this winter. I will definitely add this one to my list.
