Caroline Leavitt’s Pictures of You, an original trade paperback, is the January Costco Book Pick (Costco Book Buyer Pennie Ianiciello is credited with creating several best sellers via her monthly picks in the Costco Connection. She is also on the King County Library Foundation’s Board of Directors). She describes it this way,

The story begins with two women running away from home. When their cars collide on a foggy highway, one is killed. The survivor, trying to heal herself, sets out to help the husband and child left behind by the deceased. Once their lives intersect, the unlikely trio fumble through questions of forgiveness, love, truth and what really matters.

The prepub reviews were all splendid (with the possible exception of LJ, which offered a criticism that sounds more like a recommendation; “This is an entertaining read and a wonderful story, but it doesn’t cover any new literary ground.”)

Check out the insightful interview with Leavitt by Susan Henderson (we’re big fans of her debut, also an original trade paperback, Up From the Blue) in the online publication The Nervous Breakdown; useful for book clubs.
