Review and Giveaway: Triple Love Score by Brandi Megan Granett


What happens when you stop playing games?

Miranda Shane lives a quiet life among books and letters as a professor in a small upstate town. When the playing-by-the-rules poet throws out convention and begins to use a Scrabble board instead of paper to write, she sets off a chain of events that rattles her carefully planned world. 

Her awakening propels her to take risks and seize chances she previously let slip by, including a game-changing offer from the man she let slip away. But when the revelation of an affair with a graduate student threatens the new life Miranda created, she is forced to decide between love or poetry.

Publisher: Wyatt-Mackenzie – Sept. 1, 2016

My Thoughts 
What an amazing story and I LOVE that Scrabble is such a fun theme all the way through. 
Miranda has always been in love with Scott - since she was a young kid.  He always seemed to treat her like a little sister though, how would she ever break that mold in his mind?   Then one day he came to visit her at college and they kissed...then he disappeared...for over 6 years!

Then Scott comes home for a holiday and he brings ...someone special.  Wow, things have changed in 6 years.  At this point, Miranda had started seeing a student, yes a student.  He came on to her and she fell for Ronan's Irish charm and well she was lonely so why not?  If your like me, I WOULD never have a relationship of anyone that I teach...I'm sure you all the same.

As time goes on her feelings drift to other places and she falls into an amazing money making opportunity with her Scrabble poems of all things!

Life has taken so many twists and turns and Miranda truly doesn't know which way is up right now.

You will love this book from page one and won't be able to put it down til you know how it ends!

Drink 
Being the theme drifts around my favorite country for a little bit, Ireland, I will list a Irish Car Bomb.  I wouldn't personally drink one, yuck, but it fits perfectly with this book!
Rating 
I loved this book from beginning to end and I would recommend to everyone.  Pre-order it today!  You will LOVE it!
5 wine glasses it is!
What readers are saying . . .

“A poignant plot and genuine characters build a creative premise to make this novel a must-read.”
  • RT Book Reviews, 4 stars

"An entertaining romance novel with an engrossing plot, a conflicted heroine, and a couple of surprising, poignant takeaways."
  • Kirkus Reviews

“Combustible romance and fame slather a sexy gloss over more complex issues of familial love and true accomplishment for Granett’'s cast of endearing characters. An entertaining and perceptive story of our times.”
— Kathryn Craft, award-winning author of The Far End Of Happy and The Art Of Falling

“Brandi Megan Granett’s beautifully written debut novel, full of twists, turns and truths about the ups and downs of life, had me spellbound from the very first page. Triple Love Score proves that, in matters of the heart—as in Scrabble—when you get it right, it’s nothing short of poetry.”
  • Kristy Woodson Harvey, author of Dear Carolina and Lies and Other Acts of Love

“A love story that is on one hand sweet, but on the other full of surprises and intrigue, set against the background of competitive…Scrabble? It sounds entirely unlikely but this is exactly what Granett has spelled out in a slim novel that deserves kudos (using that ‘k’) and could easily become a guilty pleasure.”
  • Jacquelyn Mitchard, author The Deep End of the Ocean
“A charming mash-up of viral poetry, relatable characters, and slow-simmering romance. Granett explores how doing the unexpected might lead to what you had always wanted.”
  • Amy E. Reichert, author of The Coincidence of Coconut Cake and Luck, Love & Lemon Pie

“Like tiles on a Scrabble board, Granett's characters unfold and connect and diverge again. Readers will be spellbound as they follow Poetry Professor Miranda Shane's unlikely adventures - ones that take her across the country and as far away as Istanbul and France - as her long-held dreams concerning love and career are both challenged and re-defined.”
  • Amy Impellizzeri, author of Lemongrass Hope

Triple Love Score is a wonderful love story and a novel with such intriguing twists and turns that it kept me turning those pages until the very end! A fun, unique read.”
  • Anne Girard, author of Platinum Doll 

"Women seeking a solid story of a poetry professor's awakening will find Triple Love Score a delightful romp through options Miranda never realized she had."
  • Midwest Review of Books

“A romantic pleasure with delightfully unique characters and a plot that takes you on an unexpected journey. Granett has a clear writing style that brings each scene to life and makes for a tremendously engaging read. As a fan of love and poetry, I highly recommend it!”
  • Anita Hughes, author of Santorini Sunsets
