Pre-Pub Book Buzz: The Gilly Salt Sisters by Tiffany Baker

I lust over books. I'll admit it. I have a massive TBR stack but there are so many new releases that I'm just dying to get my hands on and Tiffany Baker's The Gilly Salt Sisters is just one of many. The book hits shelves on March 14 and is first release since her debut, The Little Giant of Aberdeen County, back in 2009.

Here's a bit about the book from the publisher's site:

In the isolated Cape Cod village of Prospect, the Gilly sisters are as different as can be. Jo, a fierce and quiet loner, is devoted to the mysteries of her family's salt farm, while Claire is popular, pretty, and yearns to flee the salt at any cost. But the Gilly land hides a dark legacy that proves impossible to escape. Although the community half-suspects the Gilly sisters might be witches, it doesn't stop Whit Turner, the town's wealthiest bachelor, from forcing his way into their lives. It's Jo who first steals Whit's heart, but it is Claire--heartbroken over her high school sweetheart--who marries him.

Years later, estranged from her family, Claire finds herself thrust back onto the farm with the last person she would have chosen: her husband's pregnant mistress. Suddenly, alliances change, old loves return, and new battle lines are drawn. What the Gilly sisters learn about each other, the land around them, and the power of the salt, will not only change each of their lives forever, it will also alter Gilly history for good.

Now, Little Giant of Aberdeen County, was a sweet book with quirky characters and a hint of magic. I expect Gilly Salt to be similar in that regard -- and hope that's the case.

Happy reading!

I started this book a few months ago when I got the ARC, but I don't remember why I put it down. Your post has reminded me to find it again!
