I still haven't read her follow-up, Lizzy and Jane, but I was thrilled to get my hands on The Brontë Plot last year. Turns out my expectations ... "A Portrait of Emily Price" by Katherine Reay

In the beginning, I trudged through it somewhat. I do not like things that are designed to manipulate me emotionally and this felt like that typical ... A Fun Little Side Read

It’s hard for me to admit that I didn’t really like it because there was so much to love. Unfortunately, it missed the mark for me. It was a little like ordering a favorite dish at a restaurant then finding that ... A Portrait of Emily Price by Katherine Reay

On 12/28 Karin Beery wrote: I'm having a really hard writing this review because I'm still not entirely sure how I felt about the book. Overall I feel like the description is a bit misleading - I expected this to be more of a romance, for Ben's and Emily's relationship to be a main component of the novel, but it's more or less ... Not what I expected, but not bad.

I can re-read Lizzy and Jane as often as my heart desires.🙂 I’m also super excited ... A Portrait of Emily Price

On 12/18 Elle Alice wrote: Reay's charming style that made her other novels so endearing certainly does not lack in this one. It is a whirlwind story about Emily Price, a girl who fixes things (its her job, actually) ... and sometimes people (or she tries to, that is). She falls fast for a sweet and ambitious Italian chef in Atlanta ... A Portrait of Emily Price

It's relaxing and pleasurable, a nice change from suspenseful and intense. Her newest, A Portrait of Emily Price, takes readers into the art world, the restaurant business, ...
