Here’s a closer look at the June Mystery/Suspense Peruse Book Club….
Can’t Look Away
“In 2013, twenty-three-year old Molly Diamond is a barista, dreaming of becoming a writer. One night at a concert in East Williamsburg, she locks eyes with the lead singer, Jake Danner, and can’t look away. Molly and Jake fall quickly and deeply in love, especially after he writes a hit song about her that puts his band on the map.
Nearly a decade later, Molly has given up writing and is living in Flynn Cove, Connecticut with her young daughter and her husband Hunter—who is decidedly not Jake Danner. Their life looks picture-perfect, but Molly is lonely; she feels out of place with the other women in their wealthy suburb, and is struggling to conceive their second child. When Sabrina, a newcomer in town, walks into the yoga studio where Molly teaches and confesses her own fertility struggles, Molly believes she’s finally found a friend.
But Sabrina has her own reasons for moving to Flynn Cove and befriending Molly. And as Sabrina’s secrets are slowly unspooled, her connection to Molly becomes clearer––as do secrets of Molly’s own, which she’s worked hard to keep buried.
Meanwhile, a new version of Jake’s hit song is on the radio, forcing Molly to confront her past and ask the ultimate questions: What happens when life turns out nothing like we thought it would, when we were young and dreaming big? Does growing up mean choosing with your head, rather than your heart? And do we ever truly get over our first love?”
Yoga Poses Deck: I love this deck of yoga pose cards. It is super simple and easy to follow, with each card literally only showing an image of the pose and the name.
Brooklyn Brittle: This cookie brittle from Brooklyn Brittle looks so yummy. I like that it comes with two pieces as that means I can enjoy one today and one tomorrow. These would be great with a cup of coffee.
Turkish Beach Towel: I am always happy to receive Turkish towels because they are so versatile. You can use them as a towel, throw, blanket, cover…….you name it. I actually like to keep a couple in my car…..just because!
Peruse Review June 2022 – Final Thoughts
I truly think this is a lovely book subscription box. As I mentioned above, I find Peruse to be simple yet thoughtful. There’s not too much going on, it’s not overwhelming, and I really like the number of items we receive. They focus on good reads and a few fun goodies to go along with it. I think they did a great job with the book choice for June (I am so excited to read it) and I like that they included a treat for us to enjoy while we read. I think Peruse is a great option for book lovers!
Peruse is a monthly book subscription box. Relax, escape, and immerse yourself into the best new releases... every month!
