This is an all new feature that I am up to my EARS in excitement about! Obviously, this is not my OWN creative idea [though I wish it were!] Blind Date with A Book has been featured at libraries and bookstores across the United States! Upon listening to What Should I Read Next [Modern Mrs. Darcy‘s podcast] I was reminded of this great idea, and decided to bring it to life in blog post format!
So here’s how this will work! I will bring you THREE selections, each with four descriptive words and when you CLICK the image it will bring you to the Goodread/Amazon/Audible link to see if you like what you’ve chosen! Granted, with this idea in blog post format, you’re not locked into anything, but I assure you, I have rated NONE of these books less than four stars, so they all come highly recommended by me!

As a busy wife, new mother, business owner, and designer, Emily Ley came to a point when she suddenly realized she couldn’t do it all.

A chance run-in with a college boyfriend puts a young woman’s picture-perfect life in perspective in this warm-hearted and lyrical novel—from the author of The Lake Season.
Since finishing graduate school, Maggie Griffin has worked hard to build an enviable life in Boston. She’s an elementary school teacher in a tony Boston suburb, a devoted sister, and a loving aunt. With her childhood best friend’s wedding quickly approaching and her own relationship blossoming, this is the summer she has been waiting for.
But when Maggie’s career is suddenly in jeopardy, her life begins to unravel. Stricken, Maggie returns home to seaside Mystic, Connecticut, where she expects to find comfort in family and familiarity. Instead, she runs into Cameron Wilder, a young man from her past who has also returned home, and whose life has taken a turn that puts Maggie’s city struggles in harsh perspective. When tragedy strikes for Cameron, Maggie is faced with big decisions as she weighs what matters most and strives to stay true to the person she’s become.
It’s been ten years since Nicolette Farrell left her rural hometown after her best friend, Corinne, disappeared from Cooley Ridge without a trace. Back again to tie up loose ends and care for her ailing father, Nic is soon plunged into a shocking drama that reawakens Corinne’s case and breaks open old wounds long since stitched.
The decade-old investigation focused on Nic, her brother Daniel, boyfriend Tyler, and Corinne’s boyfriend Jackson. Since then, only Nic has left Cooley Ridge. Daniel and his wife, Laura, are expecting a baby; Jackson works at the town bar; and Tyler is dating Annaleise Carter, Nic’s younger neighbor and the group’s alibi the night Corinne disappeared. Then, within days of Nic’s return, Annaleise goes missing.
Told backwards—Day 15 to Day 1—from the time Annaleise goes missing, Nic works to unravel the truth about her younger neighbor’s disappearance, revealing shocking truths about her friends, her family, and what really happened to Corinne that night ten years ago.

Diane Chamberlain has been writing books for a long time, but she only came onto my radar a few years ago when a long time friend of mine mentioned The Secret Life of CeeCee Wilkes to me. I can’t lie, I actually STILL haven’t read this one, but I did purchase it! It wasn’t until 2 years ago when Carrie [one of my FAVORITE adult rec gals!] told me about Necessary Lies, that I discovered the greatness of Ms Chamberlain for myself! Since then I have even RE-read Necessary lies, and in addition I have completed five MORE Diane Chamberlain novels. Each one is so different from the other, yet has Diane’s trademark way with words, and amazing plot twists. I love Diane for contemporary with a kick.
