    I adored the lush and suspenseful Flight of Dreams, so I couldn’t wait to get my hands on Lawhon’s latest. I’ve already had a number of people recommend this one to me, but they didn’t have to; my fascination with the Romanovs started in my teen years.

    Karen White’s books are dependably packed with memorable characters and page-turning plots, so this one’s been high on my list since it was announced. I’m a South Carolina native, so I can’t wait to see how she renders the setting—and the family secrets promise another engrossing read.

    I’ve read rave reviews of this novel that praise both its wit and warmth, and the concept of a fake plus one that leads to real romance sounds like the ’90s romantic comedies I grew up on and still love today.

    This one is summer reading for my students, and a re-read for me. Though I love The Joy Luck Club, this was the novel that made me a devoted fan of Tan’s, and I’m hoping my students are as riveted by the complex mother-daughter relationship as I was—and still am!
