Happy Friday! Casey Wyatt here.
Today’s topic is good, old-fashioned word of mouth. Like any avid reader, when I find a book I really like, I want to tell all my friends about it. I believe that word of mouth is still a powerful force in the book reading world.
Many of my favorite books were suggested to me by someone else. A few examples: The Lord of the Rings given to me by my cousin when I was fourteen. I loved them! I still own that original boxed set. Another is Garden Spells by Sara Addison Allen, a magical romance about love and family. And a children’s book about a boy wizard, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, ’nuff said there.
In the spirit of passing on a good read, I’d like to share one with you. Recently, I had the pleasure of reading a fantastic contemporary romance – Beauty and the Feast by Julia Barrett. This book has it all, great food, sizzling sex scenes and engaging characters.
Sparks fly when Eva Raines, a country girl with killer cooking skills, is hired by wealthy entrepreneur and philanthropist, Gabriel Abbott. He is quickly seduced by her amazing culinary creations. Eva, eqaully smitten, is a bit overwhelmed by the handsome man’s interest in her.
Once I started reading this book, I couldn’t put it down. The sex is hot and had me squirming in my seat (so adults only, please). If you’re looking for a romance with spicy scenes, witty dialogue, and a heartwarming plot, this is the book for you. Check it out!
What good books have you read lately? And what initially drew you to pick up that book in the first place (word of mouth, the cover, the blurb)?
