Egg Salad Sandwiches (and Cheap White Wine) | It Happens in the Hamptons

Egg Salad Sandwiches (and Cheap White Wine) | It Happens in the Hamptons
Egg Salad Sandwiches (and Cheap White Wine) | It Happens in the Hamptons
Today I'm featuring the novel, It Happens in the Hamptons, as part of TLC Book Tours stop. After reading the description/teaser for this book (below in the feature box), it sounded like it would make the perfect summer beach read. After reading the book itself, I hesitantly agree with my initial assessment. I say hesitantly because I think the teaser is a tad misleading. Here's why:
  • The teaser calls George Katie's new boyfriend. In the story, it's more of a "let's see if this leads to boyfriend" status.
  • The teaser implies that George takes Katie on his arm and shows her around in a whirlwind fashion. This never happens. A lot of what is seen of lavish events, country clubs, and haute couture fashions is not seen through Katie's eyes.
  • I sort of get why they teased it as "upstairs-downstairs", but I think that description is a bit of a stretch.

Welcome to the TLC Book Tours stop for the first novel by Lauren K. Denton, The Hideaway! Although bits and pieces (pun totally intended if you read this) of this story are set in New Orleans, the majority of it takes place in a charming little town in Alabama called Sweet Bay.

I'm so happy to be hosting another TLC Book Tours stop for author Lisa Jewell, this time with her latest novel, I Found You. You can check out my review of her book The Girls in the Garden here.

This is only the second book I've read by Jewell, but I really enjoy the style of her writing. She's not afraid to write flawed characters and messy situations, and she always keeps me guessing and questioning who I think "dunnit". I look forward to going back one of these days to read some of the things she wrote previous to my introduction to her.

Novel Destinations, a #TLCBookTours stop

Novel Destinations by Shannon McKenna Schmitt & Joni Rendon
Novel Destinations is a book written for those who truly love literature. For those who step out of their own lives and into the pages, awash in a world they've arrived in. Fortunately, this second edition of Novel Destinations helps people like me...people who ache to return to the haunting Gothic South that they've never physically been to, the cathedrals of Paris that only exist in their mind's eye, and the rowdy Burns Night Supper that lingers on their tongue...revisit and relive these experiences even when the cover is closed.

Your passport to literary adventure.
