I just had to share a quick book review with you! I received an advance copy of Lies and Other Acts of Love by author Kristy Woodson Harvey, and it was great! Kristi is a fellow design blogger over at Design Chic, and this is her second novel. I figured, the girl has great style, so she must be a great writer!
The book is a perfect spring and summer time read. Here is the synopsis from the back of the book:
After sixty years of marriage and five daughters, Lynn “Lovey” White knows that all of us, from time to time, need to use our little white lies.
Her granddaughter, Annabelle, on the other hand, is as truthful as they come. She always does the right thing—that is, until she dumps her hedge fund manager fiancé and marries a musician she has known for three days. After all, her grandparents, who fell in love at first sight, have shared a lifetime of happiness, even through her grandfather’s declining health.
But when Annabelle’s world starts to collapse around her, she discovers that nothing about her picture-perfect family is as it seems. And Lovey has to decide whether one more lie will make or break the ones she loves . . .
I’m a night-time reader. I read every night before I fall asleep, and the only problem with this book (I say that jokingly!) is that I couldn’t put it down and was up way too late most nights until I finished the book! Honestly, it was a great story and well written. A book I can confidently recommend!
(Opinions are my own – I was not compensated for this review other than receiving a copy of the book.)
