Can’t-Wait Wednesday: Act Your Age, Eve Brown by Talia Hibbert

I am still very new to the romance genre, but I can’t recommend Talia Hibbert series about the Brown sisters enough. Get a Life, Chloe Brown was a delight and Take a Hint, Dani Brown wrapped me up in a cozy blanket of feels. The third book in the series, Act Your Age, Eve Brown, comes out next month and I am equal parts excited and sad to part ways with this series. Cover is linked to Goodreads.

Title: Act Your Age, Eve Brown
Author: Talia Hibbert
Series: The Brown Sisters, #3
Pages: 400
Publisher: Avon
Release Date: March 9, 2021

      “In Act Your Age, Eve Brown the flightiest Brown sister crashes into the life of an uptight B&B owner and has him falling hard—literally.
      Eve Brown is a certified hot mess. No matter how hard she strives to do right, her life always goes horribly wrong—so she’s given up trying. But when her personal brand of chaos ruins an expensive wedding (someone had to liberate those poor doves), her parents draw the line. It’s time for Eve to grow up and prove herself—even though she’s not entirely sure how…
      Jacob Wayne is in control. Always. The bed and breakfast owner’s on a mission to dominate the hospitality industry—and he expects nothing less than perfection. So when a purple-haired tornado of a woman turns up out of the blue to interview for his open chef position, he tells her the brutal truth: not a chance in hell. Then she hits him with her car—supposedly by accident. Yeah, right.
      Now his arm is broken, his B&B is understaffed, and the dangerously unpredictable Eve is fluttering around, trying to help. Before long, she’s infiltrated his work, his kitchen—and his spare bedroom. Jacob hates everything about it. Or rather, he should. Sunny, chaotic Eve is his natural-born nemesis, but the longer these two enemies spend in close quarters, the more their animosity turns into something else. Like Eve, the heat between them is impossible to ignore—and it’s melting Jacob’s frosty exterior.”

I an eagerly awaiting Anna-Marie McLemore’s upcoming release, The Mirror Season. Just in case you weren’t aware, I am a big fan of Anna-Marie McLemore, having fallen in love with their writing starting with their debut six years ago. There is something always so lovely and vulnerable about their writing that just brings me to tears every time I pick up a new book by them. I am ready for this one to break me and put me back together again. Cover is linked to Goodreads.

This year I want to dive into more horror and I am especially excited about horror novels coming out that are written by Latinx authors. High on my TBR is Cynthia Pelayo’s Children of Chicago which takes the story of the Pied Piper and turns it into a murder mystery. I personally think the Pied Piper story is already pretty creepy on its own, so I am excited to see what Pelayo does with this one. Cover is linked to Goodreads.

Pages: 320
Publisher: Agora Books
Release Date: March 9th, 2021

When another teenager is brutally murdered at the same lagoon where her sister’s body was found floating years before, she is certain that the Pied Piper is not just back, he’s looking for payment he’s owed from her.

Pages: 352
Publisher: Holiday House

      “Coming of age as a Fat brown girl in a white Connecticut suburb is hard.
      Harder when your whole life is on fire, though.

      Charlie Vega is a lot of things. Smart. Funny. Artistic. Ambitious. Fat.
      People sometimes have a problem with that last one. Especially her mom. Charlie wants a good relationship with her body, but it’s hard, and her mom leaving a billion weight loss shakes on her dresser doesn’t help. The world and everyone in it have ideas about what she should look like: thinner, lighter, slimmer-faced, straighter-haired. Be smaller. Be whiter. Be quieter.
      But there’s one person who’s always in Charlie’s corner: her best friend Amelia. Slim. Popular. Athletic. Totally dope. So when Charlie starts a tentative relationship with cute classmate Brian, the first worthwhile guy to notice her, everything is perfect until she learns one thing–he asked Amelia out first. So is she his second choice or what? Does he even really see her? UGHHH. Everything is now officially a MESS
      A sensitive, funny, and painful coming-of-age story with a wry voice and tons of chisme, Fat Chance, Charlie Vega tackles our relationships to our parents, our bodies, our cultures, and ourselves.”
