**Coming Winter 2020**
Seeing isn’t always believing.
Trapped by her past trauma, Macy McCall worked with a variety of therapists and medications- most yielding minimal results. Her newest doctor, Daniel Yates, helps bring forth her biggest breakthroughs and she believes she can see the light at the end of a very dark and scary tunnel. With a boyfriend and a good job, she enjoys her blooming independence. Then she sees her. The woman that looks exactly like her.
This mirror image plagues her life in a way that she would never have expected. And when it all unravels, she won’t be the only one left wondering what is real and what is imagined.

Review by Twinsie Angie
I received this book from the author for an honest review.
I was excited to try a new trope as I have never read a “stole at birth” novel. Plus, since I enjoy this author writing I was happy to give it a try.
Piper/Greta has a life altering news given to her. When you think you know everything to find out you have been lied too is something else. She is left a mess. She runs away to not have to deal with her “real” family. I am sure anyone would feel this way if they had been found to have been stolen. She leaves with her best friend to try and figure things out.
The story is written so well and when we are given some little foreshadowing about things to come, I was shocked I did not figure things out!! LOL The story was well written and leaves you with lots of tears and emotions.
I loved it the story.

When Anna wakes up from a coma after a car crash, she discovers life has gone on without her. Her husband has been unfaithful – with her best friend – and she’s been long since replaced at work.

Although their lives may have been put on pause, together they just might find a way to heal.
Audio Review by Twinsie Angie
I was given this audio book for an honest review by the author.
I was excited to read alllllllll about Leif after reading Repeat. You do not need to read that book to follow along as they are both standalone stories.
Anna wakes up and finds out she has been in a coma for a LONG time. Not only has she been out but so has her husband *Wink* and he came home with some baggage. Anna is not one to stand by and do nothing. She moves on with her life. The strange part of it all was that the one who helped her was also in the same accident as she was.
Leif felt for the angel in the bed. He was doing all her could to help her and when she wakes up, he is stunned stupid to see her standing on his front step. He is drawn to her but…well…women are horrible beasts so he needs to stay away….but he cant because its Anna and she isn’t a horrible beast.
The two have a back-and-forth chemistry with the pushing forward and step backward. There were a few times I felt it was a bit much the back and forth. When they finally decide to step into the new territory of roommates with benefits things get spicey quickly!! I enjoyed Leif showing her men are worth the trouble and she shows him not all women are like his ex-too. They both find what they need and what they have been missing their entire life with their roommate.
I loved Anna’s mom and her matchmaking behind the scenes. This woman is a GEM!! She knew what buttons to push to get BOTH of them out of their heads and into each other’s pants!!
Audio Review by Twinsie Melinda
I received this audio from the author for an honest review.
I enjoyed listening to this book. Andi Arndt is one of my favorite narrators and she did a great job with the audio. Her transitions between characters was seamless. Andi did well with keeping me engaged in the story.
I was so excited when I realized this was about Leif, Ed’s brother from Repeat. I enjoyed seeing glimps of Ed and Clem also. Ok back to Leif and Anna.
Anna wakes up after being in a coma to find her world has been turned upside down. Not only has time slipped by but her hubby was so devastated she was in a coma he slept with her best friend. Yep what a great husband and friend.
Leif was in the same accident that put Anna in a coma. We learn he not only helped her after the accident but checked on her and read to her at the hospital.
Leif does not want to get involved with anyone after he had his heart shedded but Anna calls to him.
I enjoyed seeing these two together and watching Leif try to prove not all men are self centered asses and Anna proving not all women will take his heart and shred it to pieces. I like their banter and chemistry. Leif may seem to the the bad boy but he was so loving toward Anna and his humor was entertaining.

From the New York Times bestselling author of On Mystic Lakecomes a powerful novel of love, loss, and the magic of friendship. . . .
In the turbulent summer of 1974, Kate Mularkey has accepted her place at the bottom of the eighth-grade social food chain. Then, to her amazement, the “coolest girl in the world” moves in across the street and wants to be her friend. Tully Hart seems to have it all—beauty, brains, ambition. On the surface they are as opposite as two people can be: Kate, doomed to be forever uncool, with a loving family who mortifies her at every turn. Tully, steeped in glamour and mystery, but with a secret that is destroying her. They make a pact to be best friends forever; by summer’s end they’ve become TullyandKate. Inseparable.
So begins Kristin Hannah’s magnificent new novel. Spanning more than three decades and playing out across the ever-changing face of the Pacific Northwest, Firefly Laneis the poignant, powerful story of two women and the friendship that becomes the bulkhead of their lives.
From the beginning, Tully is desperate to prove her worth to the world. Abandoned by her mother at an early age, she longs to be loved unconditionally. In the glittering, big-hair era of the eighties, she looks to men to fill the void in her soul. But in the buttoned-down nineties, it is television news that captivates her. She will follow her own blind ambition to New York and around the globe, finding fame and success . . . and loneliness.
Kate knows early on that her life will be nothing special. Throughout college, she pretends to be driven by a need for success, but all she really wants is to fall in love and have children and live an ordinary life. In her own quiet way, Kate is as driven as Tully. What she doesn’t know is how being a wife and mother will change her . . . how she’ll lose sight of who she once was, and what she once wanted. And how much she’ll envy her famous best friend. . . .
For thirty years, Tully and Kate buoy each other through life, weathering the storms of friendship—jealousy, anger, hurt, resentment. They think they’ve survived it all until a single act of betrayal tears them apart . . . and puts their courage and friendship to the ultimate test.
Firefly Lane is for anyone who ever drank Boone’s Farm apple wine while listening to Abba or Fleetwood Mac. More than a coming-of-age novel, it’s the story of a generation of women who were both blessed and cursed by choices. It’s about promises and secrets and betrayals. And ultimately, about the one person who really, truly knows you—and knows what has the power to hurt you . . . and heal you. Firefly Lane is a story you’ll never forget . . . one you’ll want to pass on to your best friend.
Review by Twinsie Tenise
Some books need no introduction or review with all sorts of details. Firefly Lane is definitely one of those books. The story speaks for itself and it has a lot to say. I loved Tully and Kate and their story about lifelong friendship, finding yourself, and oh so much more. I wish there were a 10 star option! Words cannot express how utterly fantastic this book was. I’m not sure I’ve ever been full of so many emotions after finishing a book. I think Firefly Lane is a book every female should read. I know I will be recommending it to everyone!
About Kristin Hannah
I can hide away in a big city, pretend as if I’m not drowning. I can ignore the sadness inside my heart that is begging for a change. But if I’m being honest, my sense of belonging has disappeared. I thought I wanted the big city life, the fast track and all the glamorous things. Turns out, there’s nowhere I’d rather be than home.
Coming back to help run my mom’s business gave me the perfect escape.
But there is one problem.
An unresolved past has a way of haunting anyone. Things can sure get complicated when the man that broke your heart all those years ago is now your new landlord.
It may get a little messy, I may regret my decision to stay…
But then again, this might just be the Perfect Risk.
She lives in Illinois and enjoys spending time with her husband and two children. You will always find her with her kindle or paperback in hand as it is her favorite pass time.
