One of the Best Books of April

One of the Best Books of April

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.”

To start your year off right, I’m giving you a FREE download of the book tracker my daughter designed for the book group, which you can print out. It has pages to track your books, pages for reviews, a book wish list, the 2021 book group schedule, monthly and weekly planners with important book group dates and a list of all my books so you can work towards earning the 50+ commemorative pin I send to everyone who has read fifty or more of my novels. Once you achieve that goal, I also add your photograph on the Wall of Fame on my website (if you’re interested in that).

2021 Reading Challenge

I have a great year of reading planned and would like to invite you to take the 2021 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 2022 releases!
