Lucky Leap Day by Ann Marie Walker

For those looking for a romantic comedy, this one for you!  Cara had drunk too many whiskeys and gets tangled in the Irish traditions on Leap Day, and although it all felt like a dream, she realized it wasn’t the moment she woke up.  The moment she woke up, she found a man beside her and a ring made of tin foil on her finger.  While everything else in her life continues to wait for her, her life dramatically changes overnight.  Interested in knowing how Cara handles the rest?

This Is How It Always Is by Laurie Frankel

A beautiful story about family, secrets, changes, and fairy tales.  It reminds us of how challenge change really is and why we are afraid of change.  Whether the change is from being a new parent or raising a child to not become who you want them to be, or simply encountering new challenges and not being able to overcome them.  I picked up this book to read as we got a puppy over the holidays and I felt some puppy remorse.  This book reminded me the challenges we all face and why we’re afraid of facing challenges, along with how to overcome them.  A must read!

Happy Reading!
