#FiveBlushReviews ~~ The Hotel Nantucket by Elin Hilderbrand

Rating: The Hotel Nantucket by Elin Hilderbrand  Christina’s 5 keys Review Fans of the Blue Bistro will enjoy this nostalgic trip down Elin Hilderbrand memory lane. I looooooved everything about this book, from the depictions of the hotel, to the Nantucket Blue uniforms, to the food and the nightlife. The characters and plot lines almost take a back seat to the shining star of this lovely novel: Nantucket Island. I’m convinced no one loves this Island like Elin does, and as a long time fan, I’ve come to love this island through her eyes as well. In The Hotel Nantucket,...

The Summer Place by Jennier Weiner #FiveBlushRead

Rating: The Summer Place by Jennifer Weiner Christina’s 5 Blush Review One of the things I liked most about The Summer Place by Jennifer Weiner, was the way she took us back to some of the more frustrating and inconvenient elements of the pandemic quarantine and layered it with humor and endearment. It’s a talent I’ve found signature to Weiner and her books throughout the years. Family drama and strong female characters are front and center in The Summer Place. The actual plot, the wedding of a young couple who met right before quarantine, takes a bit of a back...

#FiveBlushRead ~~ Malibu Rising by Taylor Jenkins Reid

Rating: Louisa’s 5 Blush Review Taylor Jenkins Reid is an author that is quickly becoming one of my favorites.  Her writing style is so unique and always so engaging.  I listened to Daisy Jones and the Six on audible and it’s one of my all-time favorites.  I found while reading that book (and this book) that TJR writes so well that I literally googled Daisy Jones and the Six to see if they were a real band in the ’70s!  I felt the same way while reading this book. This family was so real in my mind that I wanted...

Their friendship begins with a car ride home back from college and turns into a lifelong friendship that neither can do without.

#Review ~~ Much Ado About You  by Samantha Young

Rating: Much Ado About You  by Samantha Young Christina’s 4 Blush Review This is my first Samantha Young book! How and WHY did I wait so long to read this author? I honestly could not be more excited to have found a new-to-me author with tons of books to power through. Much Ado About You was adorable and sweet, with moments of steamy swoonyness that had me fanning my kindle to cool it off!My favorite parts of this story centered around the English Village and bookstore that are front center. It’s been a really long time since I read a...
