*Traveling With T received an ARC at BEA 2014.

The Matchmaker

Dabney Kimball Beech, 48 years old. Resident of Nantucket her entire life. Works at the Nantucket Visitor Center- which is appropriate- because Dabney is a walking advertisement for life in Nantucket.

Dabney has a daughter, Agnes, who she loves with all her being. And a husband, Box, who she cherishes in her own way. Dabney also has a special gift….. She’s a matchmaker. With over 40 couples still together after being matched by Dabney- she’s something of a island legend. When Dabney sees pink- it’s a sign. And when she sees green- it’s a bigger sign.

The Fever

The day is just a regular day. A normal day. A school day. The day would be hard to remember, a person might be hard-pressed to tell you about any exciting news that day… Except for the fact that this day turns from normal to memorable in a matter of minutes.

When Lise, Deenie’s best friend, has a seizure in class- naturally people are concerned. But with the ways of social media- the teens start passing pictures and gossip back and forth in a matter of minutes about what is wrong with Lise- a girl who, until recently, had not garnered much attention- at least not to when she went to the pool in a bathing suit that the boys are still talking about. Continue reading

So excuse me while I dance around the house a bit, but me, yes, me- aka Traveling With T was asked to be a part of THE FEVER tour! Listen- it’s not a big secret that I really enjoyed the heck out of DARE ME by Megan- her take on cheerleaders was so great and she created a character, Beth, that still lingers with me (Think a younger Amy Dunne from Gone Girl and you have an idea of Beth!) When I saw THE FEVER for request at Netgalley, I clicked that request button like a mad woman blogger! My review will be posted in the next couple of weeks- today is all about THE QUESTION that Megan (yes, Megan!!) is answering at Traveling With T! Continue reading

Sometimes all you need is love…..And blueberries.

Ellen Branford. High-powered Manhattan attorney. Engaged to a man who is from a family with a good name and who has political aspirations. From the outside looking in, Ellen’s life is perfect. Ellen feels pretty good about her life and future, as well.

Then Ellen’s grandmother dies. Ellen is heartbroken because of the strong bond her and her grandmother had- one might even say they had a stronger bond than Ellen and her mother. Right before her grandmother dies, she asks Ellen to take a letter to a man from her hometown of Beacon.

Ellen readily agrees- it is her grandmother’s dying wish. What should be a 1 day, 2 day trip, tops- turns into so much more. Ellen, while touring the town, falls through a rickety dock and nearly drowns. Her rescuer saves her life- and she rewards him with a kiss. Little does she know, this man is going to be a good person to know in Beacon.

As Ellen tries and tries (and tries some more) to take care of the business she has in Beacon- things happen that make it almost impossible, And yet, Ellen finds herself enjoying Beacon- the town, the people, and finding out about her grandmother’s past.

During the search for the man to give her grandmother’s letter to, Ellen finds out that her grandmother had a “the road not taken” section to her life- and Ellen finds herself at a similar crossroad. Is there more to life than Manhattan? Can a born and bred city girl be happier with a slower pace of life? Read The Irresistible Blueberry Bakeshop and Cafe to find out!

Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

Mary Simses debut is cute. Fun. Light reading. Enjoyable. I read this book while sitting poolside and was delightfully entertained. The Irresistible Blueberry Bakeshop and Cafe may not be for every reader- but if you are a reader who enjoys a light read with a dash of romance and family secrets- then you have found the right book.
