Driving Lesson: A Novel and TLC Book Tours


~ I received a copy of this book from the publisher or author to facilitate this review.  I received no compensation and opinions are 100% my own or my family. ~


Synopsis (from Amazon): Sometimes life's most fulfilling journeys begin without a map.


An executive at a New York cosmetics firm, Sarah has had her fill of the interminable hustle of the big city. When her husband, Josh, is offered a new job in suburban Virginia, it feels like the perfect chance to shift gears.
While Josh quickly adapts to their new life, Sarah discovers that having time on her hands is a mixed blessing. Without her everyday urban struggles, who is she? And how can she explain to Josh, who assumes they are on the same page, her ambivalence about starting a family?

It doesn't help that the idea of getting behind the wheel—an absolute necessity of her new life—makes it hard for Sarah to breathe. It's been almost twenty years since she's driven, and just the thought of merging is enough to make her teeth chatter with anxiety. When she signs up for lessons, she begins to feel a bit more like her old self again, but she's still unsure of where she wants to go.

Then a crisis involving her best friend lands Sarah back in New York—a trip to the past filled with unexpected truths about herself, her dear friend, and her seemingly perfect sister-in-law . . . and an astonishing surprise that will help her see the way ahead.
One (or more) Sentence Summary: I really enjoyed Driving Lessons, but I am not sure why.  I didn't connect with the characters, but wanted to keep reading the next chapter (actually read the Driving Lessons very fast), felt there was too much drama over nothing (or little things)....I don't know.....I just can't put my finger on it.  Enjoyable, fast read, but lacking the "wow" for me.

Favorite Character(s):  Sarah's sister-in-law.  I felt she was a "real and honest" character without drama.  She was the only character I seemed to relate too.

Fast read/slow read:  I can't put my finger on it why, but this was a fast read for me.

Cover:  I am not sure why, but I like it.  Maybe it is the ladybugs, the old jar, I don't know.

The Storyteller



Synopsis (from Amazon):  Some stories live forever . . . 

Sage Singer is a baker. She works through the night, preparing the day’s breads and pastries, trying to escape a reality of loneliness, bad memories, and the shadow of her mother’s death. When Josef Weber, an elderly man in Sage’s grief support group, begins stopping by the bakery, they strike up an unlikely friendship. Despite their differences, they see in each other the hidden scars that others can’t, and they become companions. 

Everything changes on the day that Josef confesses a long-buried and shameful secret—one that nobody else in town would ever suspect—and asks Sage for an extraordinary favor. If she says yes, she faces not only moral repercussions, but potentially legal ones as well. With her own identity suddenly challenged, and the integrity of the closest friend she’s ever had clouded, Sage begins to question the assumptions and expectations she’s made about her life and her family. When does a moral choice become a moral imperative? And where does one draw the line between punishment and justice, forgiveness and mercy? 

In this searingly honest novel, Jodi Picoult gracefully explores the lengths we will go in order to protect our families and to keep the past from dictating the future.

One (or more) Sentence Summary:  Wow, another amazing book by Jodi Picoult!  The Storyteller is a very powerful story about Sage's grandmother, Minka and what happened to her and her family in the Holocaust.  Most of the story was  incredibly heartbreaking during most of it, but so informative.  I honestly, am so amazed by stories of the Holocaust and just can't imagine what people went through or how they survived.  

Favorite Character(s):  Minka is my very favorite character.  What a strong incredible woman to have survived all what she did during her lifetime..The Holocaust, breast cancer, the death of her husband and daughter.

Fast read/slow read:  I listened to The Storyteller and I couldn't' wait to get in the car to listen to more.  

Cover:  I actually love the one above.  It is perfect!  I also found this cover too.

Would I Read Other Books by the Author: There hasn't been a Jodi Picoult book I haven't loved.  I would absolutely, no doubt about it, read any book by her!



I grew up on Long Island with my parents and my little brother, the product of a ridiculously happy childhood. My mom says I've been writing as long as she remembers - my first masterpiece was "The Lobster That Was Misunderstood," at age 5. I honed my writing skills beyond that, one hopes, before I headed off to Princeton, where I wanted to work with living, breathing authors in their creative writing program. Mary Morris was my teacher/mentor, and I really do believe I wouldn't be where I am today if not for her guidance and expertise. I had two short stories published in SEVENTEEN magazine when I was in college. However, when I graduated, a desire to not eat ramen noodles exclusively and to be able to pay my rent led me to take a job on Wall Street (not a great idea, since I can't even balance my checkbook). When the stock market crashed in 1987, I moved to Massachusetts and over the course of two years, worked at a textbook publishing company, taught creative writing at a private school, became an ad copywriter, got a master's in education at Harvard, got married, taught at a public school, and had a baby. My first novel was published shortly after my son was born, and I've always said that the reason I kept writing is because it's so much easier than teaching English.

In fourteen years, I've published thirteen novels: Songs of the Humpback Whale, Harvesting the Heart, Picture Perfect, Mercy, The Pact, Keeping Faith, Plain Truth, Salem Falls, Perfect Match, Second Glance, My Sister's Keeper, Vanishing Acts, and the upcoming The Tenth Circle, this March. Two of my books (Plain Truth and The Pact) were made into Lifetime TV movies; Keeping Faith will be another. My Sister's Keeper is in development at New Line Cinema to be a feature film. And there isn't a single day that I don't stop and marvel at the fact that when I go to work, I get to do what I love the most.

My husband Tim and I live in Hanover, NH with our three kids, a dog, a rabbit, and the occasional donkey or cow.

Great News and a Giveaway - The Publicist Book One & Book Two

Yesterday, I shared with you all the interview with Christina George and two great books….The Publicist Book One and Shelf Life: The Publicist Book Two

Today, I have great news!  I have the opportunity to give one of you your own copy.  Your choice of e-book or print! More great news, its open internationally!!!

Complete the form below and good luck.


Synopsis: The Publicist Book One 


Behind every book, there’s always more to the story.

Can one woman change an age-old institution like publishing? Probably not, but Kate Mitchell sure wants to try. As a publicist with a large, respected New York publishing house, Kate finds herself at the mercy of a broken publishing system, books that don’t always sell (at all) and author egos that are often, well, as big as the island of Manhattan.

Enter the star Editor, MacDermott Ellis. Tall, handsome, charismatic, married, and ready to save the day. Kate wants to do the right thing but her hormones seem to be driving her decisions. Then there’s Allan Lavigne, once a revered author, now as forgotten as yesterday’s news; and his nephew Nick, who wants to sweep Kate away from New York for another coast, California.

As Kate tries to navigate the landmine of publicity, the over-the-top author expectations, and the careful dance of “I’m sorry, your book isn't on the bestseller list this week”, she also finds authors who are painfully overlooked by a publisher wanting more sex, more celebrities, and more scandal.



Shelf Life: Shelf Life: The Publicist Book Two

The story only an insider could tell.

Publishing: An industry of out-of-control of egos, unrealistic expectations, and books with the shelf life of milk.

This is Kate’s world, but for how long?

When one of Kate Mitchell’s star authors is carted away in handcuffs, she thinks it’s only the beginning of her troubles. As her world crumbles around her, Kate desperately looks for anyone to hold onto but finds that happy endings are truly works of fiction. When her career and love affair hit their expiration date, Kate sets off on a new adventure….

Starting over in California is easy, but Kate soon learns that leaving her old life behind isn't. Nicholas Lavigne is eager to help her forget, but two things still own her heart, the dream of discovering the next great American novel, and MacDermott Ellis.

As Kate tries to rebuild her life she finds a surprising gift that reboots her career in a new and unexpected direction. Suddenly her name becomes synonymous with one of the biggest bestsellers publishing has seen in ages and she’s welcomed back with open arms. At the height of her success the ghosts of her past come back to remind her of the world she’d been trying to forget and the man who never let go of her heart.



Christina George has worked in publishing for twenty years (give or take). Here’s what this book isn't. It’s not a slam against publishing (though it is broken) and it’s not a slam against authors (though some of them are crazy). This book is not autobiographical though many of the stories are true. No you won’t know which ones, cause it’s more fun to guess, right? George continues to work in publicity and helps authors because at the end of the day she does love books, she loves publishing, and she loves authors. She hopes you’ll enjoy this romp through Kate’s world as much as she enjoyed creating it.

Author Interview:  I am so excited to have Christina George here today for some fun and interesting Q&A!

1.     Do you recall how your interest in writing originated? That’s funny because it didn’t. Well, that’s not to say that I didn’t noodle with writing and poetry (which God-willing will never see the light of day!) but these stories really came out of life experience and also, I wanted to know I could do it!

2.     Can you share a little of your current work with us? Sure… so much like Kate I work with authors and I work in publishing and for a publisher. I face many of the same battles Kate does: getting attention for my authors, getting publishers to pay attention to really great books. I love my job but it’s not always easy work.

3.     How did you come up with the title? That’s a funny question. So I wrote The Publicist Book One and had every intention of naming this The Publicist Book Two and then one night I woke up thought: Wow, that’s stupid, how will anyone be able to tell the difference between the two? So, I was on a plane the next day for a writer’s conference and the title Shelf Life came to me. And as anyone who has ever “named” a book knows, a title is right when it’s right. This one felt right and it still does. I love it!

4.     Can you tell us about your main character? I adore Kate, she’s my main character. She’s strong, she knows what she wants and she’s not afraid to tell it like it is. She’s also really dedicated to her authors which is so important in this line of work and she loves publishing. Despite the fact that the industry seems to be crumbling down around her, she loves it.

5.     Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp? Please be kind to your publicist or marketing person :-)

6.     How much of the book is realistic? It’s all very realistic. Ninety-five percent of what happens in the book actually happened to me while working at my job.

7.     Have you included a lot of your life experiences, even friends, in the plot? Yes, and yes --- people I adore, authors I adore and folks I didn’t care too much for. I’ve included all of it. That’s part of what made this so fun, much of it was pretty cathartic. It’s also kind of fun for folks to guess which author story is real and which one isn’t. Ninety percent of them are real.

8.     What is your favorite quality about yourself? I would have to say my sense of humor, or rather my ability to laugh at stressful situations or during stressful times. I feel like humor is so important and it can get us through a lot of tough times.

9.     What is your least favorite quality about yourself? Hmmmm, I am not good at picking good men. There, I said it. When I was a kid I was always bringing strays home. That hasn’t changed much :-)


10.  Where do you see yourself in five years? Hopefully on the set of my new HBO series called The Publicist. Wait, too far-fetched? Well, you know, a girl can dream!

11.  What are some of the best tools available today for writers, especially those just starting out? Well, first and foremost and author should have a website. As tools go, I’d say that’s the best one. You should be blogging there and really getting to know your reader. Your reader is your new BFF, you respond to their comments on your blog, you thank them for reading the book. It’s all about engagement. So, that said, you should also be on Facebook – but get a Fan Page because that’s a better way to promote yourself. Other tools? Well, I know there’s a lot of controversy around Goodreads but I’ve never, ever had a bad experience there. It’s such a fun place to engage with your reader. It really is.

12.  Do you have any advice for writers? Yes, I think it’s that you should really be vigilant with your marketing. You know stuff takes time – I always say that. But the key to a solid marketing plan is an author who is engaged in their own success. When you are engaged you’re commenting on blogs, you’re dialoging with your reader and you are careful about who you hire to do your marketing. Look, no one can do miracles. I’m on this book tour and it’s great but will I sell a thousand books? Probably not. That’s not why I’m doing it. I’m doing it for exposure. Get enough exposure and you’ll sell books. But don’t expect every “ping” you get to warrant a big blockbuster sale because it may not.


I've worked in publishing for twenty years (give or take). Here's what this book isn't. It's not a slam against publishing (though it is broken) and it's not a slam against authors (though some of them are crazy). This book is not autobiographical though many of the stories are true. No you won't know which ones, hell it's more fun to guess, right? I continue to work in publicity and help authors because at the end of the day I do love books, I love publishing, and I love authors. I hope you'll enjoy this romp through Kate's world as much as I enjoyed creating it.

Do You Like to Read Free Books and eBooks?

I am desperately seeking reviewers!   I get so many great offers to review books and they all sound so amazing.  I wish my job didn't pull on so much on my time, but that is the reality of my life.  Also, I wish I was a fast reader….but that isn't going to change after all these years.  You might be able to teach an old dog a new trick, but you can't teach me to read faster!

I am looking for anyone who is interested in receiving free books/e-books for exchange for an honest review.  I have a word document that would be completely once you have finished the book and I do the rest.  There will be no compensation exchanged for a book review.  The book/e-book is yours to keep.

If interested, please leave a comment to this post or email me at SeasideBookNook@ yahoo.

Thanks so much!

Desperately Ever After - Author Interview




Synopsis (from Amazon):   One part Sex and the City. Two parts Desperate Housewives.  Three parts Brothers Grimm.

Imagine what might happen if our most beloved fairy tale princesses were the best of friends and had the dreams, dilemmas, and libidos of the modern woman. How would their stories unfold after the wedding bells stopped ringing? Set in a fictional realm based on New York City, DESPERATELY EVER AFTER sprinkles women’s fiction with elements of fantasy, and encourages readers to rethink everything they know about happy endings. 

Years after turning her husband from beast back to man and becoming his queen, Belle finds out she’s finally going to have a child. But before she can announce the wondrous news, she catches him cheating and watches her “happily ever after” go up in flames. Turning to her friends for the strength to land with grace, she realizes she’s not the only one at a crossroads: 

Cinderella, a mother of four drowning in royal duties, is facing her 30th birthday and questioning everything she’s done (or hasn’t) with her life. 

Rapunzel, a sex-crazed socialite and one-woman powerhouse, is on a self-destructive quest to make up for 20 years locked away in a tower.

Penelopea, an outsider with a mother-in-law from hell, is harboring a secret that could ruin everything at any moment. 

One part Sex and the City, two parts Desperate Housewives, and three parts Brothers Grimm, DESPERATELY EVER AFTER picks up where the original tales left off—and reimagines them a la Gregory Maguire’s Wicked. With the wit of authors like Jennifer Weiner and the vision of ABC’s Once Upon a Time, the women of DESPERATELY EVER AFTER rescue each other from life’s trials with laughter, wine, and a scandalous new take on happily ever after. 




I am so bummed that I am swamped right now and can't just spend the day reading Desperately Ever After.  It is just the type of book I would LOVE!  I can't wait to read it.  In the meantime, let me introduce you to Laura Kenyon, the awesome author!!


Laura Kenyon is an award-winning journalist and graduate of Boston College (go Eagles!). Her stories and articles have appeared in Kiwi Magazine, Westchester Magazine, Just Labs, Serendipity, The Improper Bostonian, and Westchester/Hudson Valley Weddings, as well as in myriad newspapers and at PrickoftheSpindle.com. She lives in Connecticut with her husband and their silver Labrador retriever, who's about as well behaved as Beast. DESPERATELY EVER AFTER is her first novel.

I am excited to share this author interview with you all!


Favorite color, food, drink and animal?
Burgundy, pizza, a giant glass of red wine, and definitely dogs.
SBN:  We are in the market for a dog - after 6 years of not having one….am I ready for this?  Let's hope so!

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
Hiking (with my dog!), DIY crafts, online shopping (guilty pleasure), and reading—although I never seem to have enough free time to do that!
SBN: Laura, I will leave the hiking to you and Shadow, but I love DIY crafts and shopping of any kind, except grocery shopping!

When/Why did you start writing?
I think I’ve been writing ever since I was able to put the letters together! My mind is constantly imagining stories and characters. I’m always watching people and wondering “what if…” Honestly, if I didn’t put the ideas down on paper, I feel like they would just build up inside of me and explode one day!
SBN: I am so jealous.

What is your favorite writing spot?
I have an office in my house with a little nook for my desk and a bed for my dog Shadow at my feet. When it’s cold or drab, that’s my favorite spot. But when summer rolls around and I can bring my laptop outside and toss Shadow tennis balls from the deck, that is definitely my favorite.
SBN: I am picturing that deck on a nice summer day, while it is a high of 11 degrees in NY-winter can't end soon enough.

Do you have writing routine?
Sit with the intention of typing for hours. Get distracted. Open Word document. Decide I need more coffee. Come back and type a few sentences. Check email. Get distracted. Write more... It pretty much goes like that all day.
SBN: Sounds like my day at the office, just toss in a meeting or two!

Who are some of your favorite authors?
Allie Larkin, Jennifer Weiner, and Jane Austen
SBN:  I will have to check out Allie, I am not familiar with her work, after I read Desperately Ever After, of course!

Can you read other books while writing your own?
Only if I’m being forced to take a break (vacation) or forcing myself to take a break (between drafts). So I guess that’s a no. It’s very unfortunate!

What are currently (or last read) reading now?
I was working on Gone Girl, but I just put it down because I was having a tough time getting into it (probably because I’m also writing the sequel to Desperately Ever After!) However, I’m going on vacation very soon and plan to start and finish both Allie Larkin’s Why Can’t I Be You and at least the prequels to Jason Mott’s The Returned. I hope to make it to The Returned as well, but we’ll see how much time I have. Once the vacation ends, it’s back to writing!
SBN: I had a hard time with Gone Girl.  I can't put my finger on it, but I thought it was because of they hype it had gotten before I listened to it (I did the audio version!).

What is your favorite genre?
I suppose you’d categorize my favorite books as “women’s fiction,” though I’m still not sure why there’s no “men’s fiction” to go along with that. I love fun or moving stories about “real” people (Allie Larkin’s Stay, Jennifer Weiner’s Goodnight Nobody, Liz Gilbert’s Eat, Pray, Love), as well as completely fantastical sagas like The Hunger Games and Harry Potter, and some historical fiction (The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society was a winner). But generally, I read to escape into another world or to laugh at life—not to be depressed by it.
SBN: Totally agree!

What is your favorite(s) song/movie/play/TV show?
Hmm, that’s not as easy as “color” and “animal.” While I love huge action epics like “Independence Day” and “Lord of the Rings,” if I could only choose one, I’d say my favorite movie is “Love Actually.” I could watch that a hundred times. My favorite song would be in the classic rock genre, but there are too many great ones to choose from! I’m not very into plays, but absolutely love musicals, so that would have to go to either “Les Miserables” or “Newsies” (I was a HUGE fan of the 1992 film, and just recently saw the Broadway show, which was phenomenal). And TV show: “I Love Lucy,” hands down. Always and forever ;)
SBN: I was just in Jamestown, NY - the home of Lucy!  How funny is that?  Not as funny as Lucy!

If you could go anywhere for vacation/holiday, where would you go?
Tuscany. My husband and I went there for our honeymoon and it was amazing. I can’t wait to go back.

Which would you pick:
Ocean/beach or pool – Ocean/beach
Coffee or tea – Definitely coffee
Fruit or candy – I know the right answer, but I do have a sweet tooth…
A book or e-book – Book!!!
Computer or tablet/smart phone – Computers are so much better for typing
Camping or Hoteling – I do enjoy camping, but given the choice would pick a warm shower and cozy bed
Driving or Flying – Flying is stressful, but I start to go crazy if stuck in a car for more than six hours (my husband can vouch for that, and would probably say it’s more like three hours). So it depends on the length of the trip.

You can connect with Laura online, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, GoodReads and Amazon!

Here is the best news….you can purchase Desperately Ever After online at Amazon for only $3.99 Kindle version (paperback available too). 

Thanks Laura for the interview and I can't wait to Desperately Ever After!

Real Happy Family - TLC Book Tours + Giveaway!


~ I received a copy of this book from the publisher or author to facilitate this review.  I received no compensation and opinions are 100% my own or my family. ~



Synopsis (from Amazon): Part-time actress, full-time party girl Lorelei Branch isn’t famous yet, but she’s perfected a Hollywood lifestyle full of clubbing, fashion, and the latest juice cleanse. When Robin, her sister-in-law and agent, throws a plum job her way, Lorelei jumps at the chance and auditions to be the new girl on television’s hottest reality show, Flo’s Studio.

Enter Colleen, Lorelei’s pill-popping mother, who wants nothing more than to see her daughter win the fame and glory she never had a chance to pursue herself. But Lorelei’s dream of becoming the next reality star is dashed when she loses the spot on Flo’s Studio to a stunning African woman. In an attempt to defend her daughter against what she calls a rigged contest, Colleen goes ballistic and delivers a racist rant on live television, sparking a national media frenzy. Lorelei flees the limelight, humiliated and broke, with her slacker boyfriend Don and heads for Reno where she begins to self-destruct.

Meanwhile, the rest of the Branch family starts to come apart at the seams. Colleen and her husband, Carl, are quietly drifting apart. Darren, Lorelei’s older half-brother, is stuck in Florida working on a contentious film set while his wife, Robin, continues the tedious regimen of fertility drugs meant to help them conceive a child. Desperate to bring the family together again and make things right, Colleen hatches a plan to stage an intervention for Lorelei on the reality show Real Happy Family. Soon the entire Branch family is entangled in a mission to bring the prodigal daughter back into the fold.

Will Lorelei ever forgive Colleen? Will Real Happy Family air their most sensational intervention yet? All roads lead to a seedy Reno hotel room, where a reality TV crew is waiting.



One (or more) Sentence Summary: Dysfunctional family at its best!  Every single person in Real Happy Family is dealing past, present and (potential) future baggage.  I had to keep reading to see how the outcome would impact them all.  I wasn't disappointed.

Favorite Character(s):  My favorite character is Robin, Lorelei's sister-in-law and agent.  I was cheering for her (and Darren) the most.  

Setting:  LA and Reno - perfect setting for the book.

Fast read/slow read:  Middle of the road - not fast, but not slow either.

Cover:  The cover reminds me more of Miami than LA.  

What Others Are Saying:  Check out what others are saying on the TLC Book Tours for Real Happy Family.

Would I Read Other Books by the Author: I would.


Caeli Wolfson Widger received her MFA in poetry from the University of Montana. Her work has appeared in Another Chicago Magazine and The Madison Review.

I am so excited to be able to offer one person a copy of Real Happy Family.  Complete the form below and good luck.
