I recently joined Good Reads, a "free website for booklovers." I entered my name in a drawing for a free book to review, and I won! I will be reading and reviewing Second Time Around: A Novel by Beth Kendrick, to be released in March.
This is exciting! It looks like a good book. Here is the product description from Amazon:
Every summer, four college friends hold a mini-reunion. They laugh, reminisce, and commiserate about their soul-sucking jobs. Maybe they should have listened to everyone who warned them to study something “practical.”
Then an unexpected windfall arrives—one million dollars, to be exact—with the stipulation that they use it to jump-start their new careers. Almost overnight, a professor, a bartender, a copywriter, and an administrative assistant reinvent themselves as a novelist, an event planner, a pastry chef, and a bed-and-breakfast owner. But the changes in their professional roles create unexpected turbulence in their personal lives, and soon the secrets and scandals from their past start to resurface.
For anyone who has ever wondered “What if?,” this engaging novel provides a sweet, funny look at friendship, romance, and second chances.
I'll let you know what I think. In the meantime, Happy Reading!
