The Christmas Wish

I was led to believe that this was a holiday romcom, but this marketing is a bit misleading. It has romance, yes, and it had a lot of humorous lines and situations, but the focus of the story wasnโ€™t romance so much as it was about family dynamics and understanding that people arenโ€™t always as together as they seem.

The Kingdoms of Savannah

While some are calling this a romance, I would say that it is almost more of a coming of age story - even though our main character is in her 30s. It's about finding yourself, being comfortable in your own skin, and learning to stand on your own two feet. It's about relationships, understanding, and forgiveness. All that plus the beautiful Italian setting, this is definitely a perfect summer read.
