This year I’ve read a few books by authors that were new to me before. Jewel E. Ann’s “Look the Part” is just another example. I have to thank a fellow bookstagrammer for this recommendation and I’m so thankful for this read. But first, here is the blurb (Link to Goodreads):
Flint Hopkins finds the perfect tenant to rent the space above his Minneapolis-based law office. All the t’s are crossed and i’s dotted on Ellen’s application. Her references are good. And she’s easy on the eyes.
Flint discovers Ellen Rodgers, Board-Certified Music Therapist, plays music. Bongos, guitars, singing—not Beethoven administered through noise-cancelling headphones.
The cut-throat attorney serves up an eviction notice to the bubbly, constantly humming redhead who’s too sexy for her own good. But luck is on Ellen’s side when Flint’s autistic son, Harrison, takes an instant liking to her. A single dad can’t compete with guitars—and rats. Yes, she has pet rats.
This woman … She’s annoyingly happy with a constant need to touch him—adjust his tie, button his shirt, invade his space, and mess with his mind. Still … She must go.
This book was definitely a 5 star read for me! I was so happy with “Look the Part” and fell in love with Ellen and Flint right from the beginning! To me, this shows once again, that one should read a bit more outside of the own comfort zone and give new to you authors a chance. I‘m so happy I did this a lot this year. I discovered great books, for example „The First Time I Saw You“ by Emma Cooper or The Crowned Duet by Amo Jones.
So, if you want to call this a new year’s resolution, then I’m planning on reading more books by new to me authors in 2021!
