Katiebird and Tamie Review: The Weight of Words by Georgina Guthrie with GIVEAWAY!

GG's Weight of Words cover

Book summary:

Aubrey Price is in the final months of her undergraduate degree at the University of Toronto. Bright, witty and fiercely independent,

Aubrey works part-time for the college Dean and has her sights set on graduating with distinction. When she meets Dean Grant’s son, Daniel, the TA in her senior Shakespearean studies course, a shared love of the Bard’s works and an instant mutual attraction draw Aubrey and Daniel together. Unfortunately, a strict anti-fraternizing policy, made more perilous by a black mark on Daniel’s record, keeps them apart.

Against this academic backdrop, Aubrey and Daniel navigate their way through a steamy courtship, their forbidden romance aided, abetted and sometimes thwarted by a colorful cast of friends, family and classmates.

Like I mentioned before in my interview with The Weight of Words author, Georgina Guthrie last Friday, which you can check out here. I’ve been a fan of her work for a while.  Tamie and I were lucky enough to get an ARC to help promote the release of her books. We are so thrilled that GG decided to publish her fantastic work. There is also a link to a giveaway!!

Claire is left with a beautiful newborn daughter, a broken heart, and a body that she can hardly bear to look at in the mirror. So, in the absence of any better offers, Claire decides to go home to her family in Dublin. To her gorgeous man-eating sister Helen, her soap-watching mother, her bewildered father. And there, sheltered by the love of an (albeit quirky) family, she gets better. A lot better. In fact, so much better that when James slithers back into her life, he’s in for a bit of a surprise.
