I’m a stay at home mom of two little monsters…. Ummm kids and I love to read and coffee runs through my veins . I read pretty much a little of everything but I tend to like fantasy the most. I blame Sarah J Maas who got me stated into the fantasy genre...but to be honest I read most of everything and it just depends what I’m in the mood for. I also read a lot of YA. Don’t judge ….lol
When I’m not reading I love to spend time with the family of course, I also like to watch TV and love to find new shows to binge. Gaming is another thing I like to do and is easy to get me sucked into a game for hours or even days. Don’t even get me started on Lego games ……addictive …..lol
So as you can see I’m like all over the place but reading is always the thing that I come back to. It helps me relax and lets me jumps on so many new exciting worlds.
I love to meet new people who share the love for book as I do and in my many years of reading and reviewing I met some truly awesome people. Which honestly is the best part about the book word…..meeting so many new and lovely people.
I’m not in any way a professional reviewer. I just like to read books and share my personal opinion with other book lovers.

Nestled in the mountain shadows of Alabama lies the little town of Wicklow. It is here that Anna Kate has returned to bury her beloved Granny Zee, owner of the Blackbird Café.
It was supposed to be a quick trip to close the café and settle her grandmother’s estate, but despite her best intentions to avoid forming ties or even getting to know her father’s side of the family, Anna Kate finds herself inexplicably drawn to the quirky Southern town her mother ran away from so many years ago, and the mysterious blackbird pie everybody can’t stop talking about.
As the truth about her past slowly becomes clear, Anna Kate will need to decide if this lone blackbird will finally be able to take her broken wings and fly.

This is my first book by this author but after reading this beautiful book I will read some of her other books for sure.
I had a chance to read a sample of this book on Bookish first (Thank you!) and thought I would be something I enjoy. I had no idea how much I really ending up loving this book.
I loved the writing and the characters and the world a lot.
The writing just draws you in from the beginning of the book and makes it feel so real. Loved the small town setting and the bakery. Though the bakery part often made me hungry lol.
I really liked Anna Kate and Natalie and the depth of these two characters was amazing. Both of them different story and/ or history but yet so much in common and intertwined as it all comes together.
The book has a supernatural aspect but doesn't take it over it just enhances the story all the more. But really I personally think it still be a great book even without supernatural part.
But really this story is so much more, it is about grief and healing. Family and towns secrets and letting go and staring a new life, love, friendship and so much more. The story has funny moments but also some heartbreaking ones all nicely balanced as the story grows.
Overall just make you "feel good” book that I really enjoyed.
I rate it 5 ★
