The One Hundred Years of Lenni and Margot by Marianne Cronin

Releases June 1st Get it on Amazon Vast generational friendships are some of my most favorite. Each giving the other something golden yet fresh. I had a dear friend who once told me the best way to stay young is to keep friends from both ends of the ruler. He was absolutely right. I thought of him so much while reading The One Hundred Years of Lenni and Margot by Marianne Cronin. So a friendship is formed between Lenni who is 17 and Margot who is 83. Combined they make one hundred years. What develops transcends time and space to make something beautiful. It's a rich story that shows you can leave a mark no matter the age. ~Tanja From the Cover... An extraordinary friendship. A lifetime of stories. Their last one begins here. Life is short. No-one knows that better than seventeen-year-old Lenni living on the terminal ward. But as she is about to learn, it's not only what you make of life that matters, but who you share it with.

Dream Spinner by Kristen Ashley (Dream Team #3)

Releases May 25th Get it on Amazon I super enjoyed the lead-up to Hattie and Axl's story. I have to say,  it was not at all what I was expecting, and ended far too quickly. (I need more!!) What excited me most was visiting all the men KA has made infamous over the years. I won't give spoilers but it's a big surprise with an edge of foreboding. I have an overall feeling of apprehension for what's to come next in the series. Don't mess with my guys KA! But what really melted my butter was the prelude to Book 4... Someone get me a fan.

For Lucy by Jewel E. Ann

Releases May 23rd Get it on Amazon Wow. How do I even begin to describe the way I am feeling after reading,  For Lucy? Shattered, emotionally wrecked, and drained.

Brat: An '80s Story by Andrew McCarthy

I was a certified fan of the 80's heartthrob, Andrew McCarthy! So when I saw that there was a book coming out written by him and not a "celebrity inspired" book, I was over the moon. Not only are we privy to how McCarthy felt and experienced things during his young acting days, but we also get a gander of a few personal photos. I had no idea he's gone on to directing some of today's most popular shows. This was a real treat! ~Tanja From the Cover... Fans of Patti Smith's Just Kids and Rob Lowe's StoriesI Only Tell My Friends will love this beautifully written, entertaining, and emotionally honest memoir by an actor, director, and author who found his start as an 80s Brat pack member. Most people know Andrew McCarthy from his movie roles in Pretty in Pink, St. Elmo's Fire, Weekend at Bernie's, and Less than Zero, and as a charter member of Hollywood's Brat Pack. That iconic group of ingenues and heartthrobs included Rob Lowe, Molly Ringwald, Em

For me, she's the one who takes the cake!! ~Tanja From the Cover... Fans of Casey McQuiston, Christina Lauren, and Abby Jimenez will love this scrumptious and sweet romantic comedy from the "dizzyingly talented writer" of Boyfriend Material (Entertainment Weekly)! Following the recipe is the key to a successful bake. Rosaline Palmer has always lived by those rules—well, except for when she dropped out of college to raise her daughter, Amelie. Now, with a paycheck as useful as greaseproof paper and a house crumbling faster than biscuits in tea, she’s teetering on the edge of financial disaster. But where there’s a whisk there’s a way . .

The Dancing Girls (Detective Jo Fournier #1) by M.M. Chouinard

Book one of four! Get it on Amazon Originally published in May of 2019, The Dancing Girls is book one in a series by M.M. Chouinard. I have seen this one come through my Goodreads feed as well as a few Instagram posts. So, when I was invited to read it via the publisher I jumped on the chance.  For a police procedural to kick off with the killer front and center, it really brought me into the story. I was immediately excited to see where this was going and how we'd get there. I am happy to report I wasn't disappointed. Smart, gripping, and a page-turner! What more could you want? ~Tanja From the Cover...

Coming to Audio (Podium Audio) May 18th Get it in print/kindle now - Stunning read! This author is just perfect. I had a smile plastered on my face from the get-go! Johanna Fairview and Aiden Snow did a phenomenal job as narrators. I was completely lost in the world created by Juliette Cross the entire time.

Fantastic storylines and a plot that had me guessing till the very end.  Wolf Gone Wild has this Venom vibe to it that sucker-punched me right in my comic-loving heart.

It Had to Be You by Georgia Clark

  Releases May 4th Get it on Amazon I really do love romance set in New York. There is just something about it that makes me swoon. Maybe it's that even in a busy city with so many people connections are still made. People find their one in a million loves in the concrete and hustle. Told in the vein of "Love Actually" we met so many people that turn into couples. I did need a few post-it notes to keep them all straight, but it was a joy to see where they were all going to end up. It Had To Be You is a fun read that proves love blooms when you least expect it.   ~Tanja    From the Cover... The author of the “emotional, hilarious, and thought-provoking” (People) novel The Bucket List returns with a witty and heartfelt romantic comedy featuring a wedding planner, her unexpected business partner, and their coworkers in a series of linked love stories—perfect for fans of Christina Lauren and Casey McQuiston.
