"Amy Willoughby-Burle delivers a wonderful novel that plays confidently with contrasts and satisfies to the last sip. Sweet and tangy, The Lemonade Year is a lighthearted romance that takes on heavy issues like divorce, miscarriage, and family dysfunction. Food photographer Nina is pretty sure that life after divorce is just the pits...As she tries to negotiate the difficult events of her "lemonade year", Nina must learn to identify what really matters in her life and how far she's willing to go to secure it. Relatable, sassy, and genuine, Nina is a wonderful character who lights up the pages of The Lemonade Year. Nina understands that part of loving someone is paying attention to them...and discovers the pleasure of finally feeling seen herself.

This deft, quick novel moves easily through Nina's many ups and downs. It takes on big issues, from losing a family member to coping with a brain injury, but it's language remains light and friendly, promising that no matter how bad things get, Nina can still have the life she desires.

The Lemonade Year is a smart, satisfying romance that balances life's sour moments with its sweet ones."-- "Foreword Reviews" (3/1/2018 12:00:00 AM)
