Publisher's Summary

A Southern novel of family and antiques from the bestselling author of the beloved Saving CeeCee Honeycutt

Beth Hoffman’s best-selling debut, Saving CeeCee Honeycutt, won admirers and acclaim with its heartwarming story and cast of unforgettable characters. Now her unique flair for evocative settings and richly drawn Southern personalities shines in her compelling new novel, Looking for Me.

Teddi Overman found her life’s passion for furniture in a broken-down chair left on the side of the road in rural Kentucky. She learns to turn other people’s castoffs into beautifully restored antiques, and eventually finds a way to open her own shop in Charleston. There, Teddi builds a life for herself as unexpected and quirky as the customers who visit her shop. Though Teddi is surrounded by remarkable friends and finds love in the most surprising way, nothing can alleviate the haunting uncertainty she’s felt in the years since her brother Josh’s mysterious disappearance. When signs emerge that Josh might still be alive, Teddi is drawn home to Kentucky. It’s a journey that could help her come to terms with her shattered family - and to find herself at last. But first she must decide what to let go of and what to keep.

Looking for Me brilliantly melds together themes of family, hope, loss, and a mature once-in-a-lifetime kind of love. The result is a tremendously moving story that is destined to make bestselling author Beth Hoffman a novelist to whom readers will return again and again as they have with Adriana Trigiani, Fannie Flagg, and Joshilyn Jackson.

    Story
    "This really is a chick book, despite an auspicious"

    Men (and women), be forewarned. The protagonist, up until the end of the book, is a non drinking virgin who describes her lovely antiques, her layers of blush and the fabric of her gently swaying curtains with, I have to admit, a delightful charm. There is a real lost opportunity to make this a grittier story, and lots of groundwork was laid for that. It never pans out.

    The narrator is superb- outstanding. I would have abandoned the book long before the end if not for her.

    Likable characters, but not really worth the time.

    "Very Slow, Couldn't Finish"
    What did you like best about Looking for Me? What did you like least?

    I always love Jenna Lamia. She never disappoints.


    What could Beth Hoffman have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    It couldn't hold my interest. I'm not really sure...


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Since it couldn't hold my interest long enough for me to finish, I'm not sure I'm qualified to answer.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I loved Saving Cee Cee Honeycutt and was hoping for the magic and feeling of that book. That didn't happen.

    Great story, believable quirky characters, depth, love, mystery, natural "magic"... what more could you ask for? Beth Hoffman is becoming one of my favorite authors.

    "Wow"

    Loved it? I wanted to hear the ending but was grieving because it ended.
    I feel in love with the characters immediately. The intensity of the authors words and story made me long for more.

    "I adored this beautifully written book."

    I found myself identifying with every character at some point and felt as if I knew each of them personally. I almost didn't purchase this book, but I am so glad that I did. I listen while I walk and several times walked just so that I could listen.

    "Delightful"

    Such a sweet story of hope and healing. Set in my birthplace of Charleston, SC. It's so easy to become best friends with the characters. I'm sad I'm done with the book.

    yes... but not the first on my list of recommendations.

    This book is a little slow to start. It does get going and
    then it is interesting.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is good for a relaxing entertaining listen that doesnt require too much thought.
