Happy #BookBday (3/27/18 Edition)

Oh what a lovely day for a #BookBday!

THE ITALIAN PARTY by Christina Lynch
An April 2018 Indie Next Pick & one of Library Journal‘s Best Spring/Summer 2018 Debut Novels! “In her gracefully written debut, as effervescent as spumante, Lynch dramatizes the allure and power of secrets—in politics and marriage—while depicting with sly humor the collision between American do-gooder naïveté and Italian culture. Italophiles and anyone interested in spying and the expat experience (think Chris Pavone’s THE EXPATS) will love the spot-on social commentary.” — Library Journal, starred review

LET’S NO ONE GET HURT by Jon Pineda
LET’S NO ONE GET HURT is the evocative story of a free-spirited girl trying to find herself amid memories of her long-gone mother. The fully developed characters are as memorable as the lovely, sometimes melancholy story they people. A classic coming-of-age novel that lingers with the reader long after the last page.” — Booklist, starred review

THE RECIPE BOX by Viola Shipman
“Shipman’s multigenerational creation skillfully layers the triumphs and struggles of each family member with recurring adages proven true no matter the era. She presents a thoroughly enchanting story of strength and resilience that love provides in families. Numerous recipes and delicious descriptions will further entice readers to try their hand at baking.” — Library Journal
