2.5 stars I had a very hard time connecting with this book. The premise held such promise for me, but the story fell flat. The story is told through two timelines – if I could, I would rate the ‘past’ timeline 3.5 stars and the ‘present’ timeline 1.5 stars. I didn’t like any of the characters in t...

The Writing Desk by Rachel Hauck really captivated my attention. Very hard to put this fast paced page turner down!Featuring a dual time line, which I love in books the stories take place a century apart but actually have a connection. Two very strong women are trying to prove themselves in the w...

An intriguing story, set on a dual timeline, featuring two fledgling writers a hundred years apart. A stand alone novel with characters whose stories seem unconnected, except by an old desk. The past story begins in 1902-3 New York, among the social elites, the old "Knickerbockers". In a time whe...

I simply loved this book! The plot seemed so very original. For an avid reader, sometimes it seems so many books are so familiar, but not this read. The characters seem so real. Tenley, Jonas, Birdie, Eli, and the secondary characters are all wonderful and create a great story that centers around...

I don’t want to fangirl over this book so much that you all ignore what I have to say. But, I loved this book so much that I think the only way to adequately describe my feelings is to share my facebook status that I posted just after I finished reading. Okay, my bookish peeps… I rarely demand you...

This dual-timeline novel pulled me into its pages and simply didn’t let go! When I finished the book, I felt as if I’d lived two different lifetimes. Both stories, present and past, were so compelling. I enjoyed the contemporary storyline and wondered how things were going to work out for Tenley....

The Writing Desk has inked its way onto my favorites list – for 2017, of course, but also the all-time fave comfort books that I pull out and reread when I’m feeling blah or when I just need the hug of the familiar. Tenley and Birdie in many ways are versions of each other in another era. At least...

Tenley wrote an amazing best seller. Her father and grandfather were also best selling authors. So with the deadline for her next book looming, Tenley must make up her mind, go to Florida to help her estranged mother or go to Paris with her boyfriend. She needs inspiration to remove her roadbloc...
