When a customer comes through the door looking for a recommendation, we are often asked for a book that is an escape. This can mean different things to different readers, but for some of us, myself included, one genre that reliably provides an escape is romance. Saturday August 21st is Bookstore Romance Day and in honor of celebrating romance authors, with their happy endings, witty dialogue, and love in all its forms, several of the Island Books staff are offering their personal recommendations of romances they’ve loved!
Act Your Age, Eve Brown by Talia Hibbert
Recommended by Lillian
I am not in the mood for surprises. I haven’t been for several years, but I’m really not in the mood these days. I want to know how things will go, but I also don’t want to be bored. That’s a tough combination. Enter - the well-written, romance novel. I’ll tell you right now that the two main characters will be together in the end. I haven’t even told you which book I’m recommending, but I still promise you a happy ending. It’s an added bonus if the book makes me laugh. All of these things (happy ending, lack of boringness, and humor) are fully present in Talia Hibbert’s trilogy about the Brown sisters.
