The Island by Mary Grand

Welcome to the first day of The Island  tour presented by Rachel's Random Resources! Its also a great day because the book is available today. This book is Mary Grand's sixth book and it is set on the same island she lives on, Isle of Wight. The main character, Juliet, returns to the Isle of Wight to be with her ill father and her three sisters. Juliet's dad warns her and her brother in law, Rhys, about a killer. When Rhys is killed people suspect Juliet is the killer. Juliet must find the real killer and clear her name. I was intrigued by this book. Most of the book I thought I knew the answer to who killed Rhys but I was wrong. Juliet is determined to solve Rhys’ murder, even questioning her own family. Many secrets are uncovered throughout the entire book so I was always learning new information. You will not be bored with this book!

A Second-Hand Husband by Claire Calman

A Second-Hand Husband is a hilarious book about living in a blended family. Natalie and Carl are newlyweds when he calls Natalie to tell her he bought their first house on an auction. At first Natalie is thrilled as it will be closer to Carl's kids, who live with his ex wife. What Carl failed to mention is the house is a fixer upper (in the worst way) and is half a mile from his ex-wife's house. It is also in a small town where everyone know everyone. What could go wrong???   I absolutely loved this book. It is told from Natalie's point of view as she deals with moving to a town where her husband's ex-wife is the Queen Bee. The book is very funny and I did not want it to end. I also loved watching Natalie grow during the book into a strong self-reliant woman. Reading Natalie experience house renovation, new neighbors, and family secrets is the perfect escape. You will definitely want to add this book to your summer, winter, anytime reading list. Thank you to Rachel'

Beth and Amy by Virginia Kantra

The second book in the modern day retelling of Little Women,  focuses on the two younger March sisters, Beth and Amy. The entire family is in the book but the book is told from Beth’s POV, Amy’s POV, and a surprise few chapters told from Abby, the mother’s POV. I was so excited when I got the pickup notice from my library. When I saw my library did not have this book I suggested they add it to their collection and they did! The book opens with all the March sisters returning home for Jo’s wedding. Beth leaves her boyfriend on tour to come home. While away from the music tour Beth is able to finally focus on herself and what she loves, song writing. Amy is starting a bag line, called Baggage. It’s new but Amy already has a good following with high demand for her creations. She wants to expand her business but needs help. I loved this book. I would love to re-read Little Women and Meg and Jo all in line as I think it will make a great read! Separately the books are great reads but toge
