DESCRIPTION FROM GOODREADS:
The New York Times bestselling author of Blackberry Winter imagines the inspiration for Goodnight Moon
Goodnight Moon is an adored childhood classic, but its real origins are lost to history. In Goodnight June, Sarah Jio offers a suspenseful and heartfelt take on how the "great green room" might have come to be.
June Andersen is professionally successful, but her personal life is marred by unhappiness. Unexpectedly, she is called to settle her great-aunt Ruby’s estate and determine the fate of Bluebird Books, the children’s bookstore Ruby founded in the 1940s. Amidst the store’s papers, June stumbles upon letters between her great-aunt and the late Margaret Wise Brown—and steps into the pages of American literature.

MY THOUGHTS:
I was thrilled that I was able to get an advanced readers copy of this book.  I love Sarah Jio and have read all her novels.  She is able to combine everything that I love in each novel that she writes.  Mystery, family secrets, romance, historical fiction - - she has them all.
I love that the book is a take on how the idea for Goodnight Moon could have came to be.  It is wonderful to think that is the real way it happened.  It's a beautiful idea.
I loved June and everything that she did to keep Bluebird Books open.  Her entire life was turned upside down and she seemed to just roll with it.  It would be great if we could all be that way.
  You couldn't help to love Ruby.  Even if you didn't agree with all her choices, it was clear that she made them all out of love for her niece and her great love.
This was just a fantastic story.  The way Bluebird Books is described, I want to go there and buy another copy of Goodnight Moon. 

You can preorder a copy of Goodnight June here.  

It is important to note that I received a copy of this book via NetGalley in return for a honest review.  All thoughts and opinions are mine.
