We're pleased to have Amy E. Reichert back at CLC today, to celebrate the upcoming publication of her latest novel, The Kindred Spirits Supper Club (April 20th). Melissa recently enjoyed her previous novel, The Optimist's Guide to Letting Go, and is excited to check this one out soon. Thanks to Kathleen Carter Communications, we have TWO copies to give away!

Amy E. Reichert, author of THE COINCIDENCE OF COCONUT CAKE, LUCK, LOVE & LEMON PIE, THE SIMPLICITY OF CIDER, and THE OPTIMIST'S GUIDE TO LETTING GO, loves to write stories that end well with characters you’d invite to dinner.

She's a member of Tall Poppy Writers. (Bio courtesy of Amy's website.)

Jobless and forced home to Wisconsin, journalist Sabrina Monroe can tolerate reunions with frenemies and kisses from old boyfriends, but not the literal ghosts that greet her in this heartwarming tale of the power of love and connection from acclaimed author Amy E. Reichert.

For Sabrina Monroe, moving back home to the Wisconsin Dells--the self-described Waterpark Capital of the World--means returning to the Monroe family curse: the women in her family can see spirits who come to them for help with unfinished business. But Sabrina's always redirected the needy spirits to her mom, who's much better suited for the job. The one exception has always been Molly, a bubbly rom-com loving ghost, who stuck by Sabrina's side all through her lonely childhood.

Her personal life starts looking up when Ray, the new local restaurateur, invites Sabrina to his supper club, where he flirts with her over his famous Brandy Old-Fashioneds. He's charming and handsome, but Sabrina tells herself she doesn't have time for romance--she needs to focus on finding a job. Except the longer she's in the Dells, the harder it is to resist her feelings for Ray. Who can turn down a cute guy with a fondness for rescue dogs and an obsession with perfecting his fried cheese curds recipe? 

When the Dells starts to feel like home for the first time and with Ray in her corner, Sabrina begins to realize that she can make a difference and help others wherever she is. (Courtesy of Amazon.)

“Amy E. Reichert has created a heart-squeezing love story, with a perfect sprinkling of mystery and magic. A deliciously sweet tale about ghosts, growing up, and going home.”
~Emily Henry, New York Times bestselling author of Beach Read

"The Kindred Spirits Supper Club is such a sweet, fun read. It's warm, cozy and full of hometown charm - and there's a brilliantly quirky cast of ghosts, too!”
~Beth O’Leary, Sunday Times bestselling author of The Flatshare and The Switch

What is a favorite compliment you have received on your writing?
When a reader tells me that one of my books brought them comfort and helped them get through a difficult time. When I read, I like to be transported from the day-to-day, so when a reader says my books can do that, I can’t imagine higher praise.

How is Sabrina similar to or different from you?
Other than a fondness for Brandy Old-Fashioneds and Pink Squirrels, I’ve realized it’s crucial to surround myself with people who accept me for who I am and vice versus. Life is too short to pretend to be someone else. 

If The Kindred Spirits Supper Club was made into a movie, who would you cast in the lead roles?
Sabrina - Aidy Bryant - she can be awkward and funny and endearing. 
Ray - Henry Cavill with an American accent. His deep voice would be perfect for Ray.
Molly - a young Kristin Chenoweth or Reese Witherspoon would have the right amount of depth and perkiness!

What is the last book you read that you would recommend? 
I’m in the middle of Sarah Maas’s A Court of Thorns and Roses series. If you like fantasy with a heavy dose of romance, it’s fantastic. Incredible world building and complicated characters—the perfect escapist read. 

What is something you've learned about yourself during the pandemic?
During the pandemic, I realized I was made for isolation. I loved the excuse to never leave the house, spend extra time with family, and do so many puzzles. 

What is your biggest pet peeve?
I hate when people throw cigarette butts out of car windows. There is a special place in hell for people who treat the world like their own personal ashtray.

Thanks to Amy for chatting with us and to Kathleen Carter Communications for sharing her book with our readers.
