Lisa’s Looking Forward To #40 – December 3rd, 2019

Posted November 27, 2019 by Lisa Mandina in LLFT / 32 Comments

Back to joining up with the Waiting on Wednesday Posts, and the Can’t
Wait Wednesday posts hosted by Wishful Endings.  Only two books this week to share.

From my ARC list for December 3rd, 2019:

This sounds like it could be a fun one!

Here is the blurb from Goodreads:

The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice
and Virtue meets Jane Austen in this witty, winking historical romance with a dash of mystery!

Victoria Aston has everything she could want: an older sister happily
wed, the future of her family estate secure, and ample opportunity to
while her time away in the fields around her home.

But now Vicky
must marry—or find herself and her family destitute. Armed only with the
wisdom she has gained from her beloved novels by Jane Austen, she
enters society’s treacherous season.

Sadly, Miss Austen has little to say about Vicky’s exact
circumstances: whether the roguish Mr. Carmichael is indeed a
scoundrel, if her former best friend, Tom Sherborne, is out for her
dowry or for her heart, or even how to fend off the attentions of the
foppish Mr. Silby, he of the unfortunate fashion sensibility.

unfortunately of all, Vicky’s books are silent on the topic of the
mysterious accidents cropping up around her…ones that could prevent her
from surviving until her wedding day.

Love the cover, and it sounds good!

Here is the blurb from Goodreads:

In this charming,
feel-good debut novel, a cynical assistant at a screenwriting agency
must reenact the meet-cute scenes from classic romantic comedy movies in
order to help her #1 client get his scriptwriting mojo back–but can a
real-life meet-cute be in store for someone who doesn’t believe in
happily ever after?

After seven years as an assistant,
29-year-old Evie Summers is ready to finally get the promotion she
deserves. But now the TV and film agency she’s been running behind the
scenes is in trouble, and Evie will lose her job unless she can convince
the agency’s biggest and most arrogant client, Ezra Chester, to finish
writing the script for a Hollywood romantic comedy.

The catch?
Ezra is suffering from writer’s block–and he’ll only put pen to paper
if singleton Evie can prove to him that you can fall in love like they
do in the movies. With the future of the agency in jeopardy, Evie
embarks on a mission to meet a man the way Sally met Harry or Hugh Grant
met Julia Roberts.

But in the course of testing out the
meet-cute scenes from classic romantic comedies IRL, not only will Evie
encounter one humiliating situation after another, but she’ll have to
confront the romantic past that soured her on love. In a novel as
hilarious as it is heartwarming, debut author Rachel Winters proves that
sometimes real life is better than the movies–and that the best kind
of meet-cutes happen when you least expect them.

With the new version of the Little Women movie coming out, this looks like it might be the perfect time for this!

 Here is the blurb from Goodreads:

The timeless classic Little Women inspired this heartwarming modern tale of four sisters from New York Times bestselling author Virginia Kantra.

March sisters—reliable Meg, independent Jo, stylish Amy, and shy
Beth—have grown up to pursue their separate dreams. When Jo followed her
ambitions to New York City, she never thought her career in journalism
would come crashing down, leaving her struggling to stay afloat in a gig
economy as a prep cook and secret food blogger.

Meg appears to
have the life she always planned—the handsome husband, the adorable
toddlers, the house in a charming subdivision. But sometimes getting
everything you’ve ever wanted isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

When their mother’s illness forces the sisters home to North Carolina for the holidays, they’ll rediscover what really matters.

thing’s for sure—they’ll need the strength of family and the power of
sisterhood to remake their lives and reimagine their dreams.

  1. I haven't heard of any of these but I'm glad you have books to be excited for. I'm not doing too well on getting my owned books read so I will most likely still be on a buying ban next year. *sigh* I will live vicariously through you!

    • Oh yeah. I'm not getting the ones I've bought read. Or the ones I bought in the past. But I keep on going! I need to do a buying ban myself. :-). Thanks for visiting!

  2. Meet Cute and Dangerous Alliance stick out to me — Meet Cute simply because that is the cutest blurb and Dangerous Alliance bc Victoria sounds amazing and I aodre that she turns to Jane Austen for help!

  3. I totally forgot I have an arc of Meg & Jo which I want to read this December. I love Little Women. Lots of good picks here. Sorry to be visiting so late.
