Remember when Sarah Jio (Glamour Health and Fitness blogger and novelist) was so kind to give me an advanced copy of her first book, The Violets of March?
And when I read it I told everyone that she was going to be a famous novelist?
Well, I hate to say I told you so but I'll say it anyway because she's now crazy famous.
And so when she sent me an advanced copy of her second novel, The Bungalow, I opened my mailbox and felt pretty darned special.
To receive mail from a famous novelist is just about the best thing ever.
I read The Bungalow a few weeks ago and devoured it in a day.
Sarah Jio is masterful at getting you hooked from the very beginning.
That is, until the last few chapters.
That's when I couldn't help but rush through them.
You see, how the story unfolded had me so on edge I actually skimmed to the end because I fell so in love with the main characters and was too impatient to find out what happened.
Bad, I know.
But I really really wanted to find out what happened and I was biting at the bit in anticipation.
Her stories are that captivating.
Thanks, Sarah, for writing yet another beautifully woven tale.
I'll carry this story with me forever.
The Bungalow comes out TODAY!
