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

The book of choice was a nice, easy read: A Portrait of Emily Price, by Katherine Reay. I'd encountered Katherine's bookish references inserted into modern settings through ...

On 1/4 Stephanie Cherry wrote: I chose this book to review because it is about a woman who does restoration for a living. Restoring a one hundred year old house, that piqued my interest. 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, ...

Once she meets and instantly feels in love with handsome Italian Ben, she tried to help him fix everything including his family.
