Italian for Beginners

Italian for Beginners

I picked this up at the library and might let it jump line. From the publisher: "Thirty-four-year-old Manhattan accountant Cat Connelly has always lived life on the safe side. But after her little sister gets married, Cat wonders if she has condemned herself to a life of boredom by playing by the rules. She decides to take a chance for once, accepting an invitation to spend a month with an old flame in Italy. But her reunion with the slick and gorgeous Francesco is short-lived, and she finds herself suddenly alone in Rome. Now, she must see if she has the courage to live outside the lines for the first time - and to face a past she never understood. It will take an unexpected friendship with a fiery Italian waitress, a whirlwind Vespa tour of the Eternal City with a handsome stranger, and a surprise encounter with an old acquaintance to show Cat that life doesn't always work out the way you expect, but sometimes you have to have fall in order to fly."

I Was Anastasia

I Was Anastasia

Only the second time on sale ever for this 2018 Summer Reading Guide pick! In 1920 Germany, a woman named Anna Anderson was pulled out of a canal, claiming to be Anastasia Romanov, and bearing the scars of a violent attack. In this historical novel, Lawhon employs an unusual criss-crossing structure to tell both women's stories, that of Anna Anderson (going backwards in time, from 1970, as she waits the court's final ruling on her identity) and that of Anastasia Romanov (beginning in 1917, when her family is imprisoned, and moving forward in time). When the two stories converge, all is revealed. An intricately-crafted, page-turning, brain-bending mystery. More info →

The Cactus

The Cactus

From the publisher: "Soon to be a Netflix feature film starring Reese Witherspoon. In this charming and poignant debut, one woman's unconventional journey to finding love means learning to embrace the unexpected. For Susan Green, messy emotions don't fit into the equation of her perfectly ordered life. She has a flat that is ideal for one, a job that suits her passion for logic, and an 'interpersonal arrangement' that provides cultural and other, more intimate, benefits. But suddenly confronted with the loss of her mother and the news that she is about to become a mother herself, Susan's greatest fear is realized. She is losing control. Enter Rob, the dubious but well-meaning friend of her indolent brother. As Susan's due date draws near and her dismantled world falls further into a tailspin, Susan finds an unlikely ally in Rob. She might have a chance at finding real love and learning to love herself, if only she can figure out how to let go." More info →
