Joining Jill at Breaking the Spine for this Wednesday Meme..
This week the book is Divine Appointments: A Novel (A Snowglobe Connections Novel)
which will be released mid September.

From Publishers Weekly
Josie Brooks is not interested in disruption. Everything in her life is organized, minimal, and efficient. A successful business consultant in Chicago with a type-A personality, she ruthlessly identifies and slashes any source of economic wastefulness with complete disregard for the employees themselves. Soon, everyone at Diamond Mutual calls her "The Dragon" as she orders the termination of decent, hardworking people for the sake of profit. Josie's rigid life, however, mysteriously begins to unravel when a strangely alluring snow globe appears at her apartment. Soon afterward, Josie is forced to confront her own flaws and fears, beginning an emotional journey toward love, friendship, mourning, and new beginnings. A wide range of characters flesh out this latest installment of Baumbich's (Stray Affections) Snow Globe series, most emerging impressively from the narrative. Particularly noteworthy is Baumbich's ability to make Josie likable even at the height of her self-centeredness. Readers familiar with the first book in the series will note that the place, plot, and characters in the second book are all new, but having a second chance is still a central theme.
