Can’t Wait Wednesday – LIFE AND OTHER INCONVENIENCES by Kristan Higgins


“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about.  It is a meme that I have  loved participating in for over a year now, but as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll just be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

My selection for this week is LIFE AND OTHER INCONVENIENCES by Kristan Higgins.  This past year I read my first novel from Higgins and really loved it, so I’m very much looking forward to reading more of her books.  When I read the synopsis for her upcoming release, I was really drawn to the blue blood grandmother- black sheep granddaughter relationship.



Publication Date: August 6, 2019


From Goodreads:

From the New York Times bestselling author of Good Luck with That comes a new novel about a blue-blood grandmother and her black-sheep granddaughter who discover they are truly two sides of the same coin.

Emma London never thought she had anything in common with her grandmother Genevieve London. The regal old woman came from wealthy and bluest-blood New England stock, but that didn’t protect her from life’s cruelest blows: the disappearance of Genevieve’s young son, followed by the premature death of her husband. But Genevieve rose from those ashes of grief and built a fashion empire that was respected the world over, even when it meant neglecting her other son.

When Emma’s own mother died, her father abandoned her on his mother’s doorstep. Genevieve took Emma in and reluctantly raised her–until Emma got pregnant her senior year of high school. Genevieve kicked her out with nothing but the clothes on her back…but Emma took with her the most important London possession: the strength not just to survive but to thrive. And indeed, Emma has built a wonderful life for herself and her teenage daughter, Riley.

So what is Emma to do when Genevieve does the one thing Emma never expected of her and, after not speaking to her for nearly two decades, calls and asks for help?

    Totally, the grandmother/granddaughter relationship is a big draw here for sure! It sounds like it’s such a good relationship to draw readers in. And also kind of reminds me of gilmore girls. huh.

    I haven’t read her previous releases but gosh, his sounds utterly fabulous and a little British Devil Wears Prada. I love books about strong. Independent women but a single mother at such a young age, just kicked into the street. I’ll definitely be grabbing a copy of this too Suzanne! Awesome choice!
