Can’t Wait Wednesday – LOVE SONGS FOR SKEPTICS by Christina Pishiris
“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 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 LOVE SONGS FOR SKEPTICS by Christina Pishiris. This book grabbed my attention as soon as I saw the shoutout to fans of Sophie Kinsella and Josie Silver. It also features a second chance romance, which is one of my favorite romantic tropes. 🙂
LOVE SONGS FOR SKEPTICS by Christina Pishiris
Publication Date: January 5, 2021
For fans of Sophie Kinsella and Josie Silver comes a new razor-sharp voice in women’s fiction!
Zoe Frixos gets the whole love song thing. Truly, she does. As an editor at a major music magazine, it’s part of her job description. But love? Let’s just say Zoe’s been a bit off-beat in that department. After falling hard for her best friend, Simon, at thirteen and missing every chance to tell him how she felt before he left town, Zoe came to one grand conclusion:
Twenty years later, Simon is returning to London, newly single and as charming as ever, and Zoe vows to take her second chance. But, with an arrogant publicist out to challenge her career, Simon’s perfect ex-girlfriend’s sudden arrival, and her brother’s big(ish) fat(ish) Greek wedding on the horizon, Zoe begins to wonder if, after all these years, she and Simon simply aren’t meant to be.
What if, despite what all the songs and movies say, your first love isn’t necessarily the right one? In the wake of a life-changing choice, Zoe must decide if she’s right to be skeptical about love, or if it’s simply time to change her tune…
