Amy Poeppel is one of our favorite authors and her third novel, MUSICAL CHAIRS (Atria/EmilyBestlerBook) is being published tomorrow.

Today we’re telling you about her new novel and tomorrow we will be giving away 2-packs of her 3 novels to TWO LUCKY WINNERS! Including: SMALL ADMISSIONS, LIMELIGHT and of course, MUSICAL CHAIRS.

MUSICAL CHAIRS is a charming story of role reversals, reinvention and sweet synchroncity.

Classical cellist Bridget is preparing her country home for two more months of romance with the man she hopes to marry when he emails to cancel not only the vacation, but the relationship entirely. Shortly, thereafter, her adult children arrive unannounced, with their literal and emotional baggage. Her summer is suddenly much messier than she anticipated

Her once empty nest is not only full, but falling apart.

MUSICAL CHAIRS is being called a must read for summer 2020, by some of the most influential reviewers, bloggers, magazines and authors.

She graduated from Wellesley College and worked as an actress in the Boston area, appearing in a corporate industrial for Polaroid, a commercial for Brooks Pharmacy, and a truly terrible episode of America’s Most Wanted, along with other TV spots and several plays.

  2. I really want to read this! I loved The Lion King! The broadway cast came to a city near us and my DIL bought me a ticket for my birthday. We luckily went before the shutdown; they had to cancel some and I think the props, etc are still here. It was amazing!

  3. Right now, my favorite musical is NEXT TO NORMAL because my granddaughter played the part of Natalie in a local community theatre production. I am playing her songs almost every day. I am hoping to win the books listed as I believe they are books she would be thrilled to read. Thank you, Cindy and Amy.
