An Interview With Author Louise Miller and Book Giveaway of The Late Bloomers’ Club

Today I’m sharing a special author interview and book giveaway!

Gilmore Girls fans, get your library requests and bookstore orders ready. Louise Miller is the author for you.

Miller, a Boston-based pastry chef is the author of this year’s standout summer read, The Late Bloomers’ Club and the completely charming, The City Baker’s Guide to Country Living (2017).

Both novels are set in small-town Vermont. Once you enter the world of Guthrie–Miller’s version of Star’s Hollow–you will not want to leave. I brought The Late Bloomers’ Club on vacation, devoured it in two days and then rushed to download The City Baker’s Guide to Country Living on my Kindle. Utterly delightful.

In The Late Bloomers’ Club we meet Nora, owner of the Miss Guthrie Diner (think Luke’s) and lifelong Guthrie resident.  Life takes a surprising turn when Nora mysteriously inherits a local farmhouse with 200 acres of land and her free-spirit younger sister comes back to town.

The City Baker’s Guide to Country Living offers a view of the people of Guthrie through the eyes of an outsider, Livvy Rawlings–a Boston baker who comes to work at the local inn. The way Livvy’s relationship with the town and her stern boss Margaret (a kindred spirit of Marilla from Anne of Green Gables if there ever was one) will melt your heart.

I’m thrilled to be able to share a conversation with Louise Miller on episode 4 of the new A Bookish Home Podcast.

You can also find this episode on iTunes or wherever you get your podcasts. Be sure to subscribe to make sure you never miss an episode.


I’m giving away a copy of The Late Bloomers’ Club to one lucky winner! To enter, follow A Bookish Home on Twitter and retweet the giveaway by Monday, September 10th.

This special event put on by my local bookstore sounds like the perfect night out for bookish foodies: “This is our first ticketed event ever, and it’s going to be a blast. Our three authors here have written three books that revolve around food in some way, and so of course we need to have them out for a dinner party! Orange Door Kitchen will be cooking a three-course meal — one course for each book — and the authors will rotate tables and talk with guests from course to course. Tickets will be $90, and will include signed copies of the three books — The Lost FamilyFeast of Sorrow and The Late Bloomer’s Club.”
