There are lots of happy year-end surprises for The Munich Girl as 2016 comes to its close.

Book reviewer Whitney at First Impressions Reviews included the novel on her innovative “My Life According to the Books I Read in 2016.”

She kindly chose The Munich Girl as her answer for: “Your best friend is … ”

Then, in an end-of-year book survey, she named the book “Hidden Gem Of The Year.” You can find her entire list here:

Eva Braun toasts the new year with her parents and sister Gretl.

Blogging reviewer Barb at Book Club Mom included it on her list, too, highlighting the prevalence of novels with “girl” in their titles. Barb posted about the novel several times, including her review here:

Story Circle Reviews made the novel an Editors’ Pick this month after writer Margaret Dubay Mikus left her glorious review there.

From this writing life, and the path of The Munich Girl, I extend my very best wishes to every reader kind enough to linger and engage here.

I am grateful for you, and all that you offer in our world.
