Someone Else's Love Story

Jackson's sixth novel (after A Grown Up Kind of Pretty) is original and amusing, and the plot takes an unexpected turn with the introduction of a new character late in the book. Unfortunately, the clunky transitions among narrators and jumps between the past and present distract at times from the story. Still, Jackson's many fans and those who love authentic Southern fiction should enjoy this title. [See Prepub Alert, 6/3/13.]

Beautiful Day

Hilderbrand's latest (after Summerland) blends humor with family drama in a style similar to the novels of Jane Green and Emily Giffin. The inclusion of multiple points of view from characters of varying ages and a twist on what seems at first to be a predictable plot point gives this title broad appeal to both young and older women. Another summer delight for fans of women's fiction. [See Prepub Alert, 11/30/12.]
