Winner of the 2014 Ohioana Book Award for fiction.
The latest New York Times bestseller by the beloved author of Saving CeeCee Honeycutt
Beth Hoffman s bestselling debut, Saving CeeCee Honeycutt, won admirers and acclaim with its heartwarming story and cast of unforgettably quirky characters. Now her flair for evocative settings and richly drawn Southern personalities shines again in her compelling second novel, Looking for Me.
Teddi Overman found her life s passion in turning other people s castoffs into beautifully restored antiques. Leaving her hardscrabble Kentucky childhood behind, Teddi opens her own store in Charleston. She builds a life as unexpected and quirky as her many customers, but nothing alleviates the haunting uncertainty she s felt since her brother Josh mysteriously disappeared. When signs emerge that Josh might still be alive, Teddi returns to Kentucky, embarking on a journey that could help her come to terms with her shattered family and find herself."

Review quote

Praise for Looking for Me
"Hoffman's novel of a woman putting the pieces of her family's secrets together combines a deep dramatic impact with Southern charm."
Publishers Weekly
"Hoffman has a good ear for dialogue, and Teddie and her friends are realistic, appealingcharacters. Perfect for fans of family-centered women s fiction, this book will have special appeal toreaders interested in antiques and 'shabby chic' style."
"If you want a charming look at Charleston, a do-it-yourself book on the intricacies and value of furniture restoration, or some evocative reminiscence about good Kentucky home cooking, then LOOKING FOR ME is the book for you. In fact, somewhere in the midst of Beth Hoffman s pages of this discovery-of-self novel about a young woman named Theodora Overman, you ll probably want to take a break, head to a nearby yard sale, and pick up a treasure or two of your own to refurbish."
After reading Looking for Me, you ll never think of Emily Dickinson s line, 'Hope is the thing with feathers' in quite the same way again. Sure to be a big hit and to spark fabulous conversations with friends and book clubs.
Claire Cook, New York Times bestselling author of Time Flies
