It’s a running joke here at TSR that when Ingrid reads a book, she remembers it for as long as she’s reading it, and then it’s gone from her head. This came up recently when we all decided to put together a list of Old School romances we barely remembered (here and here) and Ingrid didn’t remember anything. So, without further ado, here’s a list of books that Ingrid does remember.
This one’s formatted a little differently than usual because Ingrid actually remembered something first and then went hunting for the book.
Ingrid Remembers: She’s a newly divorced mom living in a beach house and the guy next door has a hammock she can’t keep her kid out of?
The Book: More Than Neighbors by Shannon Stacey
Ingrid Remembers: She’s got a one-handed brother and he’s kind of a real old school “daddy” type?
The Book: The Prize by Julie Garwood
Ingrid Remembers: She’s Helen of Troy and he’s a big deal for some reason, and they run around in ancient times and it’s all very something?
The Book: Wow. It’s Helen of Sparta by Amelia Carosella.
Ingrid Remembers: It’s like a romance but also it’s incredibly creepy, involves ghosts, and has a kind of wainscoting, Victorian house meets beach cottage vibe?
The Book: True Love by Jude Deveraux
Ingrid Remembers: It’s a really buttoned-up, recommend it to your Grandma series but then this one involves a woman who’s doing something that stirs up the townsfolk (but I don’t remember WHAT?? Maybe she’s just a redhead) and he’s trying to be Frank Lloyd Wright in the smallest pioneer town ever?
The Book: Quinn: A Sweet Western Historical Romance by Shanna Hatfield
Ingrid Remembers: One of her parents is like a senator or the mayor or something but the town is tiny so why would that be a big deal?
The Book: It Had to Be Him by Tamra Baumann
