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
    "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.

    If I ever stopped reading long enough, I might be able to write. For now though, I'll just keep reading.

    "Another Great Read/Listen"

    I enjoyed everything about this book. It was just as good as the first Beth Hoffman book, SAVING CEE CEE HONEYCUTT, I read. Finding Me is not your usual finding yourself narrative. I think all who read it could identify with some parts of it. if nothing else, it will hold your interest. very satisfying read....

    "Loved it!"

    I was initially drawn to this story by the main characters love for restoration and antiques. I wasnt expecting such a heartwarming story to be developed. I fell in love with the characters, each ones personality made distinct by the wonderful narrator. Finishing the story was bittersweet, like leaving an old friend. I highly recommend the book and the narrator.

    "great narration"

    Always a fan of Jenna Lamia's narration, and this continues her excellence. Someone who is very into antiques, especially antique furniture will probably enjoy this book more. It was a nice story, but was hoping for something with a little deeper of a plot.

    Love, love this wonderful story. Was afraid it wouldn't be as good as her first, Saving Cee Cee Honeycutt. Can't wait for her next!!! It is relaxing, you smile, laugh, and cry. Will definitely listen again.

    Any additional comments?

    This is such a beautiful book to listen to. The narrator is excellent. From the first word to the last she has you captivated in the story. I loved all of the characters. It's heartwarming, touching and at times heartbreaking. The book is beautifully written. Although, I think I enjoyed listening to it more than I would have if I had read it. It is one of those rare occasions when the author and the narrator come together in perfect harmony. Jenna Lamia tells the story rather than some narrators that just read the book - there's a big difference ! I am very sad to have finished it.

    "A wonderful saga"

    I enjoyed this story immensely. I hadn't read any previous books by this author and didn't know what to expect but what I found was a wonderful long story full of likeable, real characters. I looked forward to hearing the next chapter and lingered over chores so I could hear just a little bit more!
    I love Jenna Lamias narration...I could listen to her voice for hours, it is the perfect voice for the story.
    Well worth a listen.

    Story
    "The narrator makes it"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Looking for Me to be better than the print version?

    Definitely. The story is good - not excellent, but it's interesting enough to keep you listening, but Jenna Lamia is just fantastic. She brings this book to life and I enjoyed her telling of it more than I would have if I'd imagined the voices myself.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    There wasn't a 'baddy' in this book, so all the characters were nice. That makes it sound dull, but nobody stood out as being wonderful or terrible - everyone just sort of got along.


    Which character – as performed by Jenna Lamia – was your favourite?

    Jenna Lamia made it easy to tell which character was speaking, and she gave them more personality than they had written into them. I think Teddy might have been my favourite.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No, which is a shame. There were points that were about sad things, but they weren't 'wipe tears while driving, shout "no!" at the radio' kind of moments.


    Any additional comments?

    I liked the setting of this story, in the 1970s-1990s. If it had been set in the present day, it wouldn't have worked so well.

    Story
    "Not too impressed"
    What did you like best about Looking for Me? What did you like least?

    I liked the description of the furniture that she was restoring. I enjoyed the beginning of the book as it reminded me of the home life of Skeeta in the book The Help, and also the relationship she had with her mother. That's where the similarity ends! The storyline was very slow and not a lot happened. I only persevered with it because of the excellent narrator. I was really disappointed with the ending. I was waiting for an exciting and emotional outcome to the story, but it just didn't deliver,


    Would you be willing to try another book from Beth Hoffman? Why or why not?

    Not sure. I would study the synopsis first, but then again......probably not.


    Have you listened to any of Jenna Lamia’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to The Help. She was one of the 3 narrators. (BEST BOOK EVER!!) She was the main reason I got this book. She is an absolute gem of a narrator. She can do so many different voices, both male and female, old and young. She really brings a book to life. I could not have finished this book if I'd have been reading it, or if another narrator had been doing the reading. I would have given up half way through. She is a very entertaining reader.


    Was Looking for Me worth the listening time?

    I really don't think so. If someone asked me what the book was about, I would struggle to give an answer!

    "not as good as expected.having"
    Any additional comments?

    having listened to and enjoyed saving cee cee Honeycutt I thought looking for me would be really good and enjoyable. I nearly gave up at the beginning but realising beth Hoffman was the author carried on. in the end I did finish it but can't say I enjoyed it. there were a lot of sad bits with very little humour to offset this.
    told in the first person it went between childhood and adulthood numerous times breaking the flow of the story.
    jenna lamia was o.k performing the story.
