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.

    I loved the author's first book so I decided to give this one a try and I am thrilled that I did! A wonderful, heartwarming story. I didn't want it to end! The narrator is just perfect! A truly delightful book through and through!

    "As always this narrator does a terrific job"

    This is a wonderful story brought beautifully to life by the narrator. The focus of the story is a young woman named Teddi and her relationship to her friends and family. By the end of the book I felt like Teddi was a good friend.

    "Fantastic all around"

    Jenna Lamia is the best narrator/reader I have listened to.
    The story is so wonderful I didn't want it to end. The writing is almost prose. Loved the similies and analogies which brought so many things to life for me. No wonder it's been 3 years since her last book. Beth Hoffman deserves many awards for this novel of a life explored and lived.

    "snooze-fest"

    I love Jenna Lamia, she is such a good narrator. I enjoyed, Saving Ceecee Honeycutt. I liked this book for the first half and then it became a chore to listen to it. It was way too long and needed better editing. If it had been better edited I may have enjoyed it, but it just dragged on and on and on, going nowhere. Even Jenna's talents as a narrator couldnt save it from being terminally boring!

    "You wont want stop listening ..."
    If you could sum up Looking for Me in three words, what would they be?

    A great story expertly narrated. Highly recommended.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I particularly enjoy how the story's main character takes us through her life journeys and shares how her relationships change .... How they evolve from beginning to end. I nearly cried when she demonstrates her bravery and heartache when she moves from the family farm.
