2022 Brenda Novak Reading Challenge

2022 Brenda Novak Reading Challenge

I have a great year of reading planned and would like to invite you to take the 2022 Brenda Novak Reading Challenge. This challenge coincides with the books we’ll be reading in my online book group on Facebook and requires just one book per month. If you’re interested in joining the group as well as taking the challenge, I’d love to have you do so. You’ll never meet a friendlier or more supportive group of readers! And we always meet with the author of the book we are reading to discuss the story at the end of the month. Plus, if you read the designated book each month, you’ll be entered to win $100 to The Brenda Novak Store! In addition to that, if you complete all twelve books, you’ll get a FREE enamel pin, and you’ll be entered to win a dedication in one of my future releases!

And just like that our first Brenda Novak Book Box of the year is SOLD OUT! Thank you to Maisey Yates for signing all 850 copies of our January read, THE TRUE COWBOY OF SUNSET RIDGE. I love this “book throne” picture she took when she was getting them all signed.

SUMMER ON THE ISLAND Cover Reveal!

SUMMER ON THE ISLAND Cover Reveal!

I’m so excited to reveal the cover for my next trade release, SUMMER ON THE ISLAND. I love, love the way this story turned out, so I was really hoping for a nice cover, and I think my publisher did an excellent job! What do you think? Can’t you just feel the emotion on the woman’s face as she looks out to sea? This book won’t be released until April 5, 2022, but it’s already up for preorder—just in case you want to make sure it delivers to your house or your device on release day. 😉

The early reviews for THE BOOKSTORE ON THE BEACH are in! Not only got it a starred review from Publishers’ Weekly, it has also been selected as one of the best books of the month by Amazon AND Apple Books. I think the review written by the editor at Apple is my favorite so far:

“With more than 60 novels to her name, Brenda Novak knows her way around a juicy family drama, and her latest delivers exactly that. Still reeling from her husband’s sudden disappearance more than a year ago, Autumn brings her two teenage children to stay with her mother in her seaside hometown. This homecoming sets the stage for the rekindling of a high-school romance and the slow reveal of a devastating, long-held secret—not to mention a slew of other great twists. As Novak’s relatable cast of characters fall in love and navigate a range of serious issues, she presents their stories with an abundance of heart and humor. THE BOOKSTORE ON THE BEACH is an escapist treat with emotional heft.”
