Twenty years ago, Carly Cooper went on an epic quest to track down all the men she’d ever loved and lost in the hope that one of them was her Mr Right. Now, two decades and two teenage sons later, she thinks she might have got it all wrong. As the years have passed, lots of things have changed, leaving Carly asking ‘What Now?’
With a divorce and an empty nest on the horizon, Carly sets off once more to Los Angeles with her band of trusty girlfriends, to find the carefree, wild and adventurous Carly Cooper that she used to be. On this latest quest, Carly discovers a few home truths and has to decide if her marriage is worth saving or is there a new happy-ever-after out there, just waiting for her…

I have been a fan of Shari Low's books for a few years now, I remember requesting a book of hers on Netgalley and couldn't wait to dive into the story. Since then Shari has bought out more and more books, I haven't read the first one to this sequel but it is on my TBR list waiting to be read soon! Also, Congratulations to Shari for 20 years of books! Thats so amazing and I can't wait to see what she comes up with next for reader everywhere.

It was supposed to be my family’s promising new start, but now it’s a nightmare I can’t wake up from…
I need the two men sitting opposite to trust me. My family’s happiness is riding on my getting this job. I smile – there’s no link between having a friendly face and being trustworthy, but humans are programmed to think there is. Even us doctors, who should know better.
They’ll know about my past from the newspapers – the court case, the threats, the lies that were told – but what’s important now are my children. This has to be the new start we so desperately need. An escape from my old job, my ex… and the scandal that nearly ruined me.
What I don’t know yet is that if I convince them to trust me, I’ll be putting my family in terrible danger. I’m trying to make things right, but this is when it starts to go very, very wrong…

It has only been within the last few years that I have started to enjoy more psychological thriller books, I remember reading my first Lucy Dawson book ' Everything You Told Me' several years ago which made me like Lucy's writing so when I noticed that she had a new book coming out I had to take a look at the blurb and I can't wait to read this once it is released!

Hannah Townsend’s life is just as she’s always wanted it to be. She has the perfect job at a New York magazine, a small but elegant apartment in the upper west side, and an incredibly successful beau named Miles Monahan. This year, for her thirty-fifth birthday, she’s leaving the icy city sludge for sunshine! She’s got tickets for two to Barbados, and she’s all packed and meeting Miles at the airport for a week of cocktails, sandy beaches, and the music of steel drums.
But her life is turned upside down in the span of that one morning. Hannah is rocked by the news that her beloved grandmother is very sick, and Hannah needs to come home to her small Tennessee town right away to be with her family and help run her gran’s dilapidated flower shop. It also means she has to face Ethan Wright, the best friend she’d left behind so many years ago. If that isn’t enough to deal with, she discovers her boyfriend is seeing someone else.
With flights grounded and rental cars in great demand due to the winter snowstorm, she’s stranded at the airport. On her birthday, instead of waking up in a stylish beachfront hotel in Miles’s arms like she thought, she finds herself packed like sardines into a car, with two passengers, on a ride-share from LaGuardia Airport to her hometown of Franklin, Tennessee.
When everything seems to be going wrong, it’s the kindness of a handsome businessman from Hannah’s past named Liam McGuire that might just save her. But a new development that threatens Gran’s shop and secrets surrounding Liam could alter both their lives forever.

Anytime I see Jenny's books they remind me of that romance that you see in films, the ones that you can sit from start to finish and wish that you had a whirlwind romance like that. From the looks of this book, it will be just as brilliant and romantic as the last. Plus you can never go wrong with a small town,, flower shop and a side of romance.

Mary Trace is bright, bubbly and back in the dating pool in her mid thirties. All of her closest friends are in love, and she refuses to miss out on romance. So when a regular customer at her trendy Brooklyn boutique wants to set Mary up on a blind date with her son, she gives a hesitant yes. John Modesto-Whitford is gorgeous and well-groomed, so maybe dinner won’t be a total bust—until he drops a less-than-flattering comment about Mary’s age.
Desperate to be nothing like his snake of a politician father, public defender John Modesto-Whitford prides himself on his honesty and candor. But his social awkwardness and lack of filter just blew it with the most beautiful woman he’s ever dated.
Luckily, Mom’s machinations keep Mary and John running into each other all summer long, and soon they resort to fake dating to get her to back off. When their pretense turns to real friendship—and some surprisingly hot chemistry—can these two stubborn individuals see past their rocky start to a rock-solid future together?

I absolutely love the cover design of this book, especially the adorable dog on the cover which was what drew me to it first. Then I noticed the rest of the design and it made me look at the blurb and immediately add it to my wish list along with the first two books in the series to binge read this year. 

Are you looking forward to a book coming out this week?
Let me know either in the comments below or on Twitter @23reviewstreet I would love to hear from you!

Another day, another book,
