Anyway, today I want you to check out this awesome page. I won the book Grace Grows from Goodreads and it's not going to be officially out until October. Until then, you can listen to the songs (referenced in the book) for free!
I'm only about 100 pages into the book but it's really good so far! It's about a girl named Grace who seems to have a good life - successful fiance, good job, lives in NYC - but one day she runs into this guy Tyler. Tyler has just moved to The City to try to make it as a singer. He is the TOTAL opposite of Grace's fiance and kind of boyish and sweet, just struggling to be noticed in the music industry. Apparently, his voice is amazing and he starts to catch his break.
Grace meets Tyler right after he gets to The City and he immediately falls for her. He desperately tries to win her over and keeps writing songs about her. These songs are actually written and sung by the author's husband. He has a very soulful voice and it's great listening! You should really check it out and buy the book when it's out!
Though I'm only 100 pages into it, I'm loving it so far, and I got a note from the publisher claiming it to be one of her favorite books this year. (I'd say she says that about every book, but I got another book with a note from her and she didn't sing nearly the praises for the second one!). The publisher says this book makes her feel like she is curling up on the couch with her best friend watching a good chickflick. Just that description makes me want to curl up with a cup of coffee this weekend and finish the book!!
