Tiny Little Thing by Beatriz Williams

Those intrigued by the current political atmosphere may find Tiny Little Thing by Beatriz Williams an interesting read. Set in the mid-60s, it captures the world of politics and gives the reader a glimpse into what it can be like living under a microscope. Family dynamics play a large role in the book but there are also political agendas, secrets, lies and betrayals, and secret love affairs. The time frames switches back and forth between 1964 and 1966, but both stories are beautifully intertwined.

Brown-Eyed Girl by Lisa Kleypas

Hopeless romantics everywhere will want to add Brown-Eyed Girl by Lisa Kleypas to their reading list. It is a wonderfully romantic story guaranteed to warm your heart. Although this might be the fourth book in the author's Travis Family series, it still does well as a standalone and proves that you don't always need high drama to keep things interesting. It has been years since I read the last one but with back stories perfectly woven in I had no problem catching up with the Travis clan.
