IRENE: IOWA CITY
“It’s the first night of the new year.”
“Irene Steele has spent the day in a state of focused productivity. From nine to one, she filed away every piece of paperwork relating to the complete moth-to-butterfly renovation of her 1892 Queen Anne-style home on Church Street. From one to two, she ate a thick sandwich, chicken salad on pumpernickel (she has always been naturally slender, luckily, so no New Year’s Diets for her), and the. She took a short nap on the velvet fainting couch in front of the fire in the parlor.”
Title: Winter in Paradise
Genre: Contemporary, chic lit, fiction
Author: Elin Hilderbrand
Pub Date: 2018
Elin Bilderbrand is my favorite❤️ author for enjoying a book by the pool or beach. She has been dubbed the “queen of the beach reads.” This is her latest book, published last month, October 9, 2018.
One of the things I’ve loved about reading all of her beachy novels is they are all(all 21😳) set on her home island of Nantucket. This is the first of her novels to be set on a different island. For the last six years, Hilderbrand has been spending a five week stay on the US Virgin Islands to finish up her winter novels.
Hilderbrand discusses her stay in USVI before and after the devastation of Hurricane Irma in her author’s note. I’m so excited to be reading her latesta! This is my book for the weekend!
What are you reading this Friday morning? Have you read this one yet or any of her other beach stories?
I’d love to hear your thoughts and read your First Line…
Happy Friday friends & Happy Reading this weekend!💗
