The latest New York Times bestseller by the beloved author of Saving CeeCee Honeycutt

Beth Hoffman’s bestselling debut, Saving CeeCee Honeycutt, won admirers and acclaim with its heartwarming story and cast of unforgettably quirky characters. Now her flair for evocative settings and richly drawn Southern personalities shines again in her compelling second novel, Looking for Me.

Teddi Overman found her life’s passion in turning other people’s castoffs into beautifully restored antiques. Leaving her hardscrabble Kentucky childhood behind, Teddi opens her own store in Charleston. She builds a life as unexpected and quirky as her many customers, but nothing alleviates the haunting uncertainty she’s felt since her brother Josh mysteriously disappeared. When signs emerge that Josh might still be alive, Teddi returns to Kentucky, embarking on a journey that could help her come to terms with her shattered family—and find herself.

Praise for Looking for Me:"Hoffman's novel of a woman putting the pieces of her family's secrets together combines a deep dramatic impact with Southern charm."—Publishers Weekly"Hoffman has a good ear for dialogue, and Teddie and her friends are realistic, appealing characters. Perfect for fans of family-centered women’s fiction, this book will have special appeal to readers interested in antiques and 'shabby chic' style."—Booklist"If you want a charming look at Charleston, a do-it-yourself book on the intricacies and value of furniture restoration, or some evocative reminiscence about good Kentucky home cooking, then LOOKING FOR ME is the book for you. In fact, somewhere in the midst of Beth Hoffman’s pages of this discovery-of-self novel about a young woman named Theodora Overman, you’ll probably want to take a break, head to a nearby yard sale, and pick up a treasure or two of your own to refurbish."—Bookreporter.com“After reading Looking for Me, you’ll never think of Emily Dickinson’s line, 'Hope is the thing with feathers' in quite the same way again. Sure to be a big hit—and to spark fabulous conversations with friends and book clubs.”—Claire Cook, New York Times bestselling author of Time FliesPraise for Saving CeeCee Honeycutt:“Anyone in need of a Southern-girl-power fix will find [Saving CeeCee Honeycutt] engaging.”—People“A peach of a novel.”—Ladies’ Home Journal“SAVING CEECEE HONEYCUTT is an absolutely delightful debut novel packed full of Southern charm, strong women, wacky humor, and good old-fashioned heart. From the moment you first step into young CeeCee's unique world, you'll never want to leave.”—Kristin Hannah, bestselling author of Fly Away“This book unfolds like a lush southern garden, blooming with vivid characters, beauty, and surprises.”—Kim Edwards, bestselling author of The Memory Keeper’s Daughter“I barely stopped laughing, even as my heart broke and broke again for CeeCee . . .
