A "Best Book of 2016" --Refinery29
"Who hasn't wanted to live in a famous author's house and felt lost after a major life change?" --Redbook Magazine, "The 20 Best Books You Absolutely Must Read This Spring"
"Everything about Mia Gladwell's life has gone to crap. Her debut novel was panned by the press, her fiancé has apparently pulled out of the wedding, and she's wound up living in her sister's carriage house with no prospects of any kind on the horizon. Until, that is, she finds out that Ray Bradbury's house is up for sale and she decides to buy the fixer-upper, hoping she'll stumble onto some inspiration." --Refinery29, "Best Books to Read In May"
"This is a great choice for that delicious afternoon read in the summer sunshine." --Brit + Co, "20 Hottest Reads to Add to Your Summer Reading List"

"This novel from Nicole Meier sounds part Eat, Pray, Love part Under the Tuscan Sun." --Levo, "9 New Must Read Books That Will Make Your Spring So Much Better"
"Mia Gladwell is an author who is single, unemployed, and just can't seem to get things going in the right direction. But when a famous author's house is up for sale, she snatches it up in hopes of soaking in some inspiration that may have been left behind in her new residence. Once she's there, however, things seem to be going in a another direction." --FabFitFun, "10 Books to Add to Your Reading List This Summer"
"A book to add to the spring reading list STAT." --Your Tango
"A book you'll definitely want to read this spring." --The Berry
"In her charming, wry debut, Nicole Meier brings together a frustrated writer, a Hollywood ingénue, and the weathered home of a literary great. Through a winsome protagonist and a perfectly painted Los Angeles backdrop, Meier reminds us that although we're built on history, a wide open path still lies ahead." --Michelle Gable, international bestselling author of A Paris Apartment and I'll See You in Paris
"Readers will find magic in The House of Bradbury, which weaves a contemporary Hollywood storyline with authentic Los Angeles literary history. The effect is a sparkling premise, memorable characters, and crisp dialogue that draws in the reader. Author Nicole Meier whips up a thoroughly enjoyable modern story of self-discovery." --Lian Dolan, creator and host of Satellite Sisters, author of bestselling novels Helen of Pasadena and Elizabeth the First Wife
"Just as inspiration hits struggling writer Mia Gladwell, she agrees to take in a recovering young starlet. With Ray Bradbury's former home as its backdrop, Nicole Meier weaves a delightful tale of accidental friendships and second chances." --Amy Sue Nathan, author of The Good Neighbor and The Glass Wives
"The House of Bradbury is a thoughtful and witty book about picking yourself up when life is unfolding in an unexpected and challenging way. Nicole Meier skillfully illustrates that opening up to new experiences can be richly rewarding--and surprising. As a Southern California resident and fan of literature, I was delighted by the way Meier creatively weaves her fictional story into the history of the Bradbury home." --Lisa Henthorn, author of 25 Sense and television writer of Swingtown, The Beautiful Life, and The Glades
"Full of friendship, family, charm, and a touch of mystery, Nicole Meier's debut makes you wish you could move into the house of Bradbury, too. Pour yourself a cup of chamomile tea and enjoy!" --Amy E. Reichert, author of The Coincidence of Coconut Cake
"Soaked in the unflinching rays of California sunshine, The House of Bradbury is a smart look at family, loyalty, and the traces of humanity that every author leaves behind." --Colleen Oakes, best-selling author of the Queen of Hearts saga and Wendy Darling series
