A Lasting Impression by Tamera Alexander

My sister has been trying to get me to read Tamera Alexander’s books for the past couple of years. It wasn’t that I didn’t want to, it was just that I had so many new titles to read that I rarely took the time to read an older one. 

Then came the Fall 2011 Baker Books catalog. The minute I saw A Lasting Impression, I knew I had to read it. It didn’t release until November— right as I was in the middle of trying to pound out the first draft of what will be my 2013 release. So I held it until our quick pre-Christmas trip. 

Set in post-Civil War Nashville, most of this story takes place at the Belmont Mansion— a fabulous location that I now can’t wait to see in person. Memorable characters people a story filled with romance, a bit of suspense and some just plain fun. And of course I learned things I didn’t know— like that party planning is not a new profession! 

I can’t even explain all the things I enjoyed about this story. I only know it was one I hated to see end and yet, when I closed the back cover, I felt entirely satisfied. Don’t know what Tamera’s next book will be, but you can bet I’ll read it!

That just might happen, Ruth! One of the schools on my sons "to look at" list is Belmont. If we come, it will be this spring or next fall! How fun would that be! ;)
