MEG & JO by Virginia Kantra – Spotlight & Giveaway


Little Women is the inspiration for bestselling author, Virginia Kantra’s new novel, MEG & JO (Berkley).

The March sisters—reliable Meg, independent Jo, stylish Amy, and shy Beth—have grown up to pursue their separate dreams. When Jo followed her ambitions to New York City, she never thought her career in journalism would come crashing down, leaving her struggling to stay afloat in a gig economy as a prep cook and secret food blogger.

Meg appears to have the life she always planned—the handsome husband, the adorable toddlers, the house in a charming subdivision. But sometimes getting everything you’ve ever wanted isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

When their mother’s illness forces the sisters home to North Carolina for the holidays, they’ll rediscover what really matters.

One thing’s for sure—they’ll need the strength of family and the power of sisterhood to remake their lives and reimagine their dreams.



Bestselling author Virginia Kantra has earned numerous awards, including two Romance Writers of America’s RITA (R) Awards. Virginia is married to her college sweetheart, a coffee shop owner who keeps her well supplied with caffeine and material. They make their home in Raleigh, where they raised three (mostly adult) children. She is a firm believer in the strength of family, the importance of storytelling, and the power of love.

We’re lucky to have one copy of MEG & JO to giveaway. Just tell us your memories of the novel, LITTLE WOMEN. We’ll announce a winner soon. Good luck.

  1. Little Women was the first book that I was ever given – I thought all books came from the library and was thrilled to have my own copy. I still have that first copy in special place on my bookshelves.

  3. I loved Little Women. It was the first book I ever bought with my allowance growing up. I just ordered myself a other copy as the one I had growing up got do beat up. This book will always hold a special place in my heart. It’s such a classic plus I just love the story. Plus I love the movie adaptation starring June Allyson. That’s my favorite version of the film.

  7. I remember it as one of the first books I read. My mother actually named me “Beth” because of the character in the book. My first Madame Alexander doll was Beth. I can’t wait to see the movie!!
