Book Review: The Newcomer by Mary Kay Andrews

Letty Carnahan may be my favorite Mary Kay Andrews character of all time. She is smart, fierce, protective, and resourceful. Add to that witty, kind, great instincts, and you have a winning and memorable character that I'm low-key mad I can't be friends with in real life. The Newcomer, the Mary Kay Andrews novel set [...]

Cover Reveal: The Newcomer by Mary Kay Andrews

I have been enamored with Mary Kay Andrews's books for over a decade. I discovered them when I was working at Barnes & Noble, and she's remained one of my favorite authors.

Ladies’ Night Book Review

Mary Kay Andrews is one of my favorite authors. She continually crafts excellent story lines, authentic characters, and hilarious situations. All her books are set in the South, which gives my Alaska-residing self a dose of home without the expensive plane ticket. Ladies' Night is set on the Florida coast, which I dearly miss. Although [...]
