Can’t Wait for … Death of a Red-Hot Rancher by Mimi Granger

I don’t listen to a ton of podcasts, but I’ve really been enjoying Double Threat hosted by Julie Klausner and Tom Scharpling. In a recent episode, they took a deep dive into chili cook-off competitions with a couple of special guests. As anyone who has ever spent more than a second looking at my bookshelvesContinue reading “Can’t Wait for … Death of a Red-Hot Rancher by Mimi Granger”

Can’t Wait for … Secrets at the Last House Before the Sea by Liz Eeles

It feels odd writing about a book with green grass and beautiful flowers on its cover while my home is currently caked in snow, but today I have something to look forward to beyond warmer weather. Back in 2019 I was introduced to the remarkable work of Liz Eeles with her first novel in theContinue reading “Can’t Wait for … Secrets at the Last House Before the Sea by Liz Eeles”

Can’t Wait for … Deadly Delights by Laura Jensen Walker

As anyone who has ever talked with me about book knows, I’m a fan of cozy mysteries. So much so that in January I wrote a post dedicated to some of the cozies releasing this year that I cannot wait to read. Unfortunately, I have to make an addendum: when I curated that list, IContinue reading “Can’t Wait for … Deadly Delights by Laura Jensen Walker”

Can’t Wait for … Accidentally Engaged by Farah Heron

I read a lot of great book blurbs, perfected by publishing companies that know how to a sell a book or two. But still, it’s not very often a blurb pops up that ticks all the boxes for me. A fake engagement? A cooking competition? Meddling family drama? And all of this by an authorContinue reading “Can’t Wait for … Accidentally Engaged by Farah Heron”

Can’t Wait for … Anchored Hearts by Priscilla Oliveras

Sure, some people swear by not judging books by their covers. However, I’m a sucker for a flashy cover and, every once in a while, I find a book with a cover that seemingly encapsulates everything I want to read. All I can do is dive on in, whether or not the story behind theContinue reading “Can’t Wait for … Anchored Hearts by Priscilla Oliveras”

Can’t Wait for … Mother May I by Joshilyn Jackson

Part of the reason I enjoy participating in Top Ten Tuesday is that every single week, without fail, it introduces me to a large number of books I’ve never heard, but that sound fantastic. This week, the theme was focused on books released in 2021, which meant that while reading post after post from otherContinue reading “Can’t Wait for … Mother May I by Joshilyn Jackson”

Can’t Wait for … Hot, Hot Chicken by Rachel Louise Martin

Whenever a new book of food history is announced, my ears perk up. It’s like a sense: I know when an author bestows a culinary gift onto the publishing world and, in turn, a publisher smiles on consumers … Well, that might be a little dramatic, but I am always on the lookout for greatContinue reading “Can’t Wait for … Hot, Hot Chicken by Rachel Louise Martin”

Can’t Wait for … Fairy Godmothers, Inc. by Saranna DeWylde

For all this talk of festive magic and cheer right now, I’m in the mood for some regular magic. Classic magic. Unleaded magic. Your mama’s keep-some-in-the-pantry-just-in-case magic. While there are plenty of writers who know to use this winning ingredient, not many can weave blissful romance with an enchanting twist quite like Saranna DeWylde. Fortunately,Continue reading “Can’t Wait for … Fairy Godmothers, Inc. by Saranna DeWylde”

Can’t Wait for … Dial A for Aunties by Jesse Q. Sutanto

Sometimes I stumble across a blurb so great—that so perfectly fills a bookish need I didn’t even know I had—that I don’t even know how to discuss it. So this week, I’m going to let the blurb speak for itself. But seriously, I cannot wait for this book.

Can’t Wait for … The Restoration of Celia Fairchild by Marie Bostwick

I grew up reading advice columns. When my parents would read newspapers, I’d grab for the comics and, in turn, the half-page devoted to people and their issues. The reason I actually started reading them has been lost to time and my brain, but every Sunday I was engrossed in the solutions offered up byContinue reading “Can’t Wait for … The Restoration of Celia Fairchild by Marie Bostwick”
