May #LibraryLoveChallenge - Every Wild Heart by Meg Donohue

The 2018 #LibraryLoveChallenge is hosted by Angel's Guilty Pleasures and Brook Blogs

The May #LibraryLoveChallenge and my in-person library book club read is Every Wild Heart by Meg Donohue. It's a fast easy read and was perfect for mother's day because is revolved around Gail and her daughter Nic. Plus there's something for everyone, a family drama, a coming of age story and a great mystery. I was fortunate enough to review this title for RT Book Reviews when it came out in 2017, my review is below.

From USA Today bestselling author Meg Donohue comes a mystery, a love story, and a mother-daughter tale about two women on a precarious journey to uncover their true selves.

Passionate and funny, radio personality Gail Gideon is a true original. Nine years ago when Gail’s husband announced that he wanted a divorce, her ensuing on-air rant propelled her local radio show into the national spotlight. Now, “The Gail Gideon Show” is beloved by millions of single women who tune-in for her advice on the power of self-reinvention. But fame comes at a price. After all, what does a woman who has staked her career on being single do when she finds herself falling in love? And is the person who is harassing her in increasingly troubling ways a misguided fan or a true danger to Gail and her daughter, Nic?

Fourteen-year-old Nic has always felt that she pales in comparison to her vibrant, outgoing mother. Plagued by a fear of social situations, she is most comfortable at the stable where she spends her afternoons. But when a riding accident lands Nic in the hospital, she awakens from her coma changed. Suddenly, she has no fear at all and her disconcerting behavior lands her in one risky situation after another. And no one, least of all her mother, can guess what she will do next…
