Monday Reads: First pick for the new year

Happy New Year!! I wish all of you health, happiness, love and laughter!

I am super excited to announce my first read for 2012. I read this author's first book back in May of 2011 and completely fell in love with her writing, setting and characters. I even sent her a little message to tell her how much I loved her book and she wrote back! That was a total fan girl moment for me! Her latest book came out on December 27th and it is first on my list of books to read this year. So far I am loving it as much as the first.

The Bungalow by Sarah Jio

Synopsis: In the summer of 1942, twenty-one-year-old Anne Calloway, newly engaged, sets off to serve in the Army Nurse Corps on the Pacific island of Bora-Bora. More exhilarated by the adventure of a lifetime than she ever was by her predictable fiancé, she is drawn to a mysterious soldier named Westry, and their friendship soon blossoms into hues as deep as the hibiscus flowers native to the island. Under the thatched roof of an abandoned beach bungalow, the two share a private world-until they witness a gruesome crime, Westry is suddenly redeployed, and the idyll vanishes into the winds of war.

A timeless story of enduring passion, The Bungalow chronicles Anne's determination to discover the truth about the twin losses-of life, and of love-that have haunted her for seventy years.
