As readers, we love to lose ourselves between the pages of a good book, and what’s more delicious than a book about books? If you love a good story about writers, here are five women’s fiction titles to pull off the shelf:

The Words Between Us
by Erin Bartels

Robin Windsor has spent most of her life under an assumed name, running from her family’s ignominious past. She thought she’d finally found sanctuary in her rather unremarkable used bookstore until the past shows up in the form of an eerily familiar book sent by mail on the morning of her father’s scheduled execution. Robin is thrown back to the long-lost summer she met Peter Flynt, the perfect boy who ruined everything. That book — a first edition Catcher in the Rye — is soon followed by the other books she shared with Peter nearly twenty years ago, with one arriving in the mail each day. But why would Peter be making contact after all these years? And why does she have a sinking feeling that she’s about to be exposed all over again?

To fulfill a debt to her ex-fiancé (a successful Hollywood producer), she agrees to take in a pill-popping young actress as a tenant, only to find herself caught in a balancing act between her needy ex, her disapproving sister and an unpredictable starlet. When mysterious sketches begin showing up, Mia is catapulted on a complicated journey of self-discovery.
