Looking for a book to lose yourself in? Glamour’s health and nutrition blogger and long-time friend of SvelteGourmand Sarah Jio’s first novel, The Violets of March, is out today! I can’t recommend it enough–it’s one of my favorite novels of the past few years. Set in scenic Bainbridge Island, Violets is a mystery within a love story, and is the kind of book that you could share with your best friend, mother or even grandmother and know that they’d love it. Here’s the description:
In her twenties, Emily Wilson was on top of the world: she had a bestselling novel, a husband plucked from the pages of GQ, and a one-way ticket to happily ever after. Ten years later, the tide has turned on Emily’s good fortune. So when her great-aunt Bee invites her to spend the month of March on Bainbridge Island in Washington State, Emily accepts, longing to be healed by the sea. Researching her next book, Emily discovers a red velvet diary, dated 1943, whose contents reveal startling connections to her own life.
