This Week’s Featured Read
This week, our featured read was Kate Hilton’s Just Like Family. It’s a hilarious and heartwarming story set in Toronto, peppered with idyllic scenes in Ontario’s cottage country. Avery Graham is the chief of staff to the mayor of Toronto and she has created her own success and happiness. But when something blows up at work, it threatens to affect Avery’s personal life with her partner Matt, her family, and her friends.
