The Overdue Life of Amy Bylar Book Review



It's recommendation time! 

The Overdue Life of Amy Bylar by Kelly Harms is about Amy, an overworked and underappreciated mom who is in desperate need of a break. So when her guilt-ridden husband shows back up after years away and offers to take care of their kids for the summer, she accepts and escapes for New York City. I can’t blame Amy- and I am in love with her bravery and just over all attitude. Funny and refreshing!



 SYNOPSIS:
Overworked and underappreciated, single mom Amy Byler needs a break. So when the guilt-ridden husband who abandoned her shows up and offers to take care of their kids for the summer, she accepts his offer and escapes rural Pennsylvania for New York City.
Usually grounded and mild mannered, Amy finally lets her hair down in the city that never sleeps. She discovers a life filled with culture, sophistication, and—with a little encouragement from her friends—a few blind dates. When one man in particular makes quick work of Amy’s heart, she risks losing herself completely in the unexpected escape, and as the summer comes to an end, Amy realizes too late that she must make an impossible decision: stay in this exciting new chapter of her life, or return to the life she left behind.
But before she can choose, a crisis forces the two worlds together, and Amy must stare down a future where she could lose both sides of herself, and every dream she’s ever nurtured, in the beat of a heart.

Book Review: The Turn of the Key by Ruth Ware

Ruth Ware always delivers when it comes to interesting and layered characters. The Turn of the Key is a thrilling account of Rowan Caine's experience as a live-in nanny in a luxurious smart home unlike anything she has ever seen. This mystery is the epitome of the saying "if it's too good to be true, it probably is" because even though moving into the home of the Elincourts is an upgrade from her tiny apartment and dead-end job, it comes at a steep price.

Every chapter, there is something suspicious that kept me wondering if anyone in this suspenseful book was telling the truth.

Which, is obvious in the first page because Rowan is writing a letter to a lawyer, from jail, because she's being held for murder. Who is Rowan? Did she come into the Elincourt's lives for a reason? She should have known something was wrong on the day she interviewed, when one of the children warned her to never come back.

3 Books You Must Add To Your Reading List

Once in a while I get into a book slump, where I can't seem to find one that grabs my attention from the  very start, or it's just not itching the bookworm scratch that I need. I've just got to feel it, you know? Well these past couple of weeks, I've felt it, and then some because I am about to tell you about 3 books that not only brought me out of a book slump, they were so good, I'm on an all time high. 
First: The Husband Hour by Jamie Brenner. I've already posted a full review but I just have to tell you one more time: Read this book, mmmkay? 

It involves a young widow, family secrets, betrayal and a gorgeous family beach house. It's just plain good reading, folks. Jamie Brenner also has another favorite of mine called The Forever Summer, so check that out too.

All We Ever Wanted by Emily Giffin. Emily Giffin, need I say more? Her rap sheet is extensive and her books are classic rom coms that we all love but this one takes her writing to a new level. She r…

 The Marriage Clock with Zara Raheem


In Zara Raheem's fresh, funny, smart debut, a young, Muslim-American woman is given three months to find the right husband or else her traditional Indian parents will find one for her--a novel with a universal story that everyone can relate to about the challenges of falling in love.

To Leila Abid's traditional Indian parents, finding a husband in their South Asian-Muslim American community is as easy as match, meet, marry. But for Leila, a marriage of arrangement clashes with her lifelong dreams of a Bollywood romance which has her convinced that real love happens before marriage, not the other way around.

Finding the right husband was always part of her life-plan, but after 26 years of singledom, even Leila is starting to get nervous. And to make matters worse, her parents are panicking, the neighbors are talking, and she's wondering, are her expectations just too high? So Leila decides it's time to stop dreaming and start dating.
