summer reading: "The Shortest Way Home"


Yesterday officially marked the first day of summer! There's nothing quite like sitting by the pool, with a cocktail in one hand and a good book in the other. This summer, we can't wait for the release of "The Shortest Way Home", a novel written by Miriam Parker.

Here is the synopsis:

"Hannah is finally about to have everything she ever wanted. With a high-paying job, a Manhattan apartment, and a boyfriend about to propose, all she and Ethan have to do is make it through the last couple of weeks of grad school. But when, on a romantic weekend trip to Sonoma, Hannah is spontaneously offered a marketing job at a family-run winery and doesn't immediately refuse, their meticulously planned forever threatens to come crashing down. And then Hannah impulsively does the unthinkable - she takes a leap of faith. Abandoning your dream job and life shouldn't feel this good. But this new reality certainly seems like a dream come true--a picturesque cottage overlooking a vineyard; new friends with their own inspiring plans; and William, the handsome son of the winery owners who captures Hannah's heart only to leave for the very city she let go. Soon, the mission to rescue the failing winery becomes a mission to rescue Hannah from the life she thought she wanted. Crackling with humor and heart, The Shortest Way Home is the journey of one woman shedding expectations in order to claim her own happy ending."

One reason we can't wait to get our hands on this book is because it is set in our town of Sonoma! In addition, we've been told by Miriam that the novel features the girl & the fig. We can't wait to see how the girl & the fig plays a part in this story line!

"The Shortest Way Home" is set to be released very soon this summer, on July 31st. If you'd like, you can pre-order your digital or hardcover copy by clicking here.

Happy reading!
