A few weeks ago, after sending an ARC of THE ART OF FLOATING to the amazing author/human Hank Phillipi Ryan, I received an email from her that read, “I don’t know quite what to make of this unique and enchanting novel, but I cannot put it down.”
A week later, after reading the whole book, Hank wrote again. This time she shared the following: “A triumph. A treasure. Tender, profound, and hilariously heartbreaking. A gorgeously magical story that will have you saying ‘my favorite!’ and then sharing it with everyone you know.”
I, of course, have been smiling ever since. Walking around with “Tender, profound, and hilariously heartbreaking” running through my head and heart. It means something when someone gets your book—really GETS it. You know what I mean?
If you don’t know Hank’s work, check it out. Her latest novel, THE WRONG GIRL, is currently:
- an AGATHA nominee for Best Contemporary Novel
- a Left Coast Crime nominee for Best Mystery (set in the United States)
- a nominee for Best Suspense/Thriller of 2013 (from the RT BookReviews Reviewers’ Choice Awards)
