“A heartwarming tale of family with just the right touch of romance.”
~ Under the Covers
Little Women is one of my favorite classics. When I saw that Virginia Kantra, whom I’ve read before and enjoyed her books, was releasing a contemporary retelling of it, I was all over it! This story as the title suggests is about two sisters, Meg and Jo. Meg is feeling stuck in a rut in her marriage and looking for something different that gives more meaning to her life. Jo is an aspiring chef who is also unsettled in her life.
Now, this is a loose retelling but I think the author did a really good job at taking some key points from the original and adapting them into this contemporary story. I’ve always been a big fan of Jo and actually in this story I couldn’t help but gravitate towards Meg instead. Her character and her issues were compelling as was her growth through the story.
I think this is also a perfect holiday book as it got plenty of celebration and family, going from Thanksgiving through Christmas. A heartwarming tale of family with just the right touch of romance. I am now anxiously awaiting the next book about Beth and Amy!

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
