The Last Book That Kept Me Up All Night Reading was….

What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty. One of her other books, The Husband’s Secret did the same. She is one of those authors who could easily be genre-fied as “romance” as her books do what mine do—tell the stories of relationships between people, be they romantic, platonic, familial or otherwise. But her books have bridged the gap and have wider appeal. I adored the set up: Alice wakes up in the hospital from a bump on the head, and finds she’s somehow skipped years’ worth of her life. She’s made new friends, had more than one kid (she was pregnant with the first one before), finds herself a super-mom of sorts with crunchy granola healthy meals, managing tons of volunteers for her kids’ school events, and estranged from the man she loved—her husband Nick. None of which she can recall doing.

What could easily devolve into sappy cliché is handled very deftly by this talented author and the ending is exactly the sort of “gotcha” (but in a good way) that I absolutely adore.

The Husband’s Secret is also about female friendship (as are most of her books, at their core) but has a very creative surrounding story that culminates in a harrowing scene where “all,” as they say, is revealed.

I recommend them both VERY highly. In the spirit of full disclosure I read 2 of her other books (Big Little Lies and The Hypnotist’s Love Story) and did not like them nearly as well.

 

 

Hat Trick

Detroit’s expansion pro team has a hot star forward, fresh from the English Premiere League. Thanks to a series of fatal misunderstandings coupled with his famous temper, Declan MacGuire only has one thing left to him—soccer—and he’s determined not to make the same mistakes in his new life stateside.

Emily Keller, an accidental low-level PR flunkie for the team watches as Declan gets sucked into a whirlwind romance with Cassandra Dean, the team’s Queen Bee groupie, trying not to be jealous while the woman maneuvers him into a sickeningly familiar situation.

When things escalate, the team is forced to take sides, and Declan faces the toughest choice of his life.

About Liz Crowe

Amazon best-selling author, mom of three, Realtor, beer blogger, brewery marketing expert, and soccer fan, Liz Crowe is a Kentucky native and graduate of the University of Louisville currently living in Ann Arbor. She has decades of experience in sales and fund raising, plus an eight-year stint as a three-continent, ex-pat trailing spouse.

Her early forays into the publishing world led to a groundbreaking fiction hybrid, “Unconventional Romance. Worth the Risk,” which has gained thousands of fans and followers interested less in the “HEA” and more in the “WHA” (“What Happens After?”).

With stories set in the not-so-common worlds of breweries, on the soccer pitch, in successful real estate offices and at times in exotic locales like Istanbul, Turkey, her books are unique and told with a fresh voice. The Liz Crowe backlist has something for any reader seeking complex storylines with humor and complete casts of characters that will delight, frustrate and linger in the imagination long after the book is finished.

Don’t ever ask her for anything “like a Budweiser” or risk bodily injury.
