About The Book:
The USA Today bestselling author of When We Believed in Mermaids returns with a tale of two generations of women reconciling family secrets and past regrets.
Life’s beautiful for seventysomething influencer Gloria Rose, in her Upper West Side loft with rooftop garden and scores of Instagram followers–until she gets word that her old flame has been arrested for art theft and forgery, and, knowing her own involvement in his misdeeds decades earlier, decides to flee. But that plan is complicated when the nieces she raised are thrown into crises of their own.
Willow, overshadowed by her notorious singer-songwriter mother, has come home to lick her wounds on the heels of a failed album and yet another disastrous relationship. Sam, prickly and fiercely independent, is on the verge of losing not only her beloved video game company but the man she loves, thanks to her inability to keep her always-simmering anger in check.
With the FBI closing in, Willow’s career in shambles, and Sam’s tribulations reaching a peak, each of the three woman will have to reckon with and reconcile their interwoven traumas, past loves, and the looming consequences that could either destroy their futures or bring them closer than ever.

She lives in the beautiful city of Colorado Springs with her beloved, a British endurance athlete who vows he’ll never lose his accent.
I quite enjoyed the previous book I read by this author (When We Believed in Mermaids) so I was excited to read her newest release. Like in Mermaids, Write My Name focused on a pair of sisters – actually two pairs of sisters as Gloria is the sister of Billie, who was Willow and Sam’s mom. All three women are still grieving the loss of Billie and coping with their current lives in their own ways.
While Gloria is an Instagram influencer for older women, Willow is a singer and songwriter and Sam is a game designer and each use their creativity to express themselves. When Sam gets sick and Gloria has to face her past crime involvement, the three women bond together in new ways.
I found this book to be unique and different than most books I have read recently. While each woman has a romance in the book, it is not romance focused and is more about getting through life as an individual and a family. I thought the descriptions of the art, music, and video games were well done and I enjoyed this book overall.
