I read this in one sitting, staying up until 2:30am ON A WORK NIGHT, to finish it. I then proceeded to read the entire four book long series in just four days. So addicting! ~ Reviewed by Cassidy Washburn

Fans of the enemies to lovers trope, this one's for you! When Olive's sister's wedding ends up with everyone sick with a stomach bug except for Olive and Ethan, the groom's brother, the two of them are sent off on the non-refundable, non-reschedulable honeymoon. The catch? They hate each other's guts. A good enemies to lovers book has equal parts tension, pining, and romance, and this one does it so well! ~ Reviewed by Lydia Avery

If you're looking for a good cry, this is the book for you! Jumping between 1940s war-torn Leningrad and present-day Alaska, this book tells the story of Anya, a Russian immigrant mother of two daughters, who has always been closed-off and secretive about her past. Historical, heart-wrenching, and an ending with a twist! ~ Reviewed by Lydia Avery

From his middle-class childhood in a small town in South Carolina to his 2022 MacArthur Genius Grant, Lanham's story is fascinating and, here in The Home Place, beautifully told. His life is a testament to the importance of staying curious and loving the natural world. The Clemson University professor is best known as an ornithologist and if you are a birder, you will covet a birding outing with this expert naturalist. As drawn as I was to his descriptions of nature, The Home Place is very much about family, place and what it is like to be a black man working in a discipline where so few people look like Drew Lanham. ~ Reviewed by Stan Hynds
