“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!
