I recently had the privilege of reading Megan DiMaria’s debut novel Searching for Spice. It’s the story of Linda Revere. Linda is approaching her twenty-fifth wedding anniversary with concern that there should be a bit more spice between her husband and herself. The book starts out with Linda’s plans to revive the romantic side of her marriage but ends up tackling some deeper issues.
Megan DiMaria does an amazing job of dropping the reader directly into the scene. The main characters are so real I have a hard time believing that Linda and Jerry aren’t still living on somewhere in Colorado. Speaking of Colorado, be prepared to want to take a trip there after you read Searching for Spice. This is a fun book to take on vacation this summer.
My original plan was to give this book away in a drawing. However, a dear friend of mine is celebrating her thirtieths anniversary next month so I will be giving this to her to take on her romantic trip. Congratulation Barb and Bob!
