Looking for Me

Finished August 14
Looking for Me by Beth Hoffman, read by Jenna Lamia

This book is the story of a woman from her childhood, through to her thirties. Teddi grew up in rural Kentucky, on a small family farm with her parents and younger brother Josh. Very early on she developed an interest in making objects nice, and had an eye for furniture. She began finding pieces, doing work on them and selling them by the side of the road. She knew she wanted to find a way to do this for a living, and relying on the one contact she had in distant Charleston, she makes her way into a career that fits her.
Her younger brother has always been attuned to nature, and, following an incident with animal cruelty leaves home suddenly. Teddi's search for her brother has been a constant in her life for years, and despite everything she still lives in hope that he is out there somewhere. Meanwhile, though, her life in Charleston goes on, and she finds that if she wants happiness, she must let her brother go and live for herself.
A story with a strong female character, with a good storyline, and a bit of romance. Very enjoyable.


  1. Hello Shonna ... Thank you so much for your kind words about my new novel. I'm delighted that you enjoyed Teddi's story!

  2. You are quite welcome Beth, and thanks for the gentle reminder about spelling. Sometimes when I listen to an audiobook, I make assumptions about character's names and don't doublecheck. All is corrected now!
