I love to meet with book clubs, especially via Zoom. Please email me: mirandabeverlywhittemore@gmail.com and we can work something out!

I write novels, and most of those novels have to do with secrets. My fifth book, FIERCE LITTLE THING, will be out from Flatiron Books on July 27, 2021.

Set in the backwoods of Maine, FIERCE LITTLE THING has been described as "The Girls" meets "The Interestings." It's about a woman who is blackmailed into returning to Maine and the cult of her youth when someone threatens to reveal the terrible deed she committed with her childhood friends.

My other novels include JUNE and New York Times bestseller BITTERSWEET.

Has It Been A Year Already?

We began this blog a year ago to track the launch of Bittersweet, and find ourselves at the end of the initial launch period we outlined. Yes, Miranda is currently on the west coast for some book events, and she will OF COURSE be continuing to spread the word about Bittersweet, and connect with readers. Last Friday, we ran a Twitter chat to discuss the book and other summer reads.

Quotes by Miranda Beverly-Whittemore  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“I was young, still so young, that I thought my lack of wholeness was somehow my fault. I had no idea everyone feels this way—that the most essential part of growing up is figuring out where your empty places are and learning how to fill them by, and for, yourself.”
Miranda Beverly-Whittemore, Bittersweet

“I know you're picturing gold candlesticks and infinity pools, but this place they made isn't decadent, no, it's rustic in the way only a rich person's place can be, with money flowing under it invisibly, so that they get to pretend they're just like the rest of us.”
Miranda Beverly-Whittemore, Bittersweet

“It was colder that winter than I knew cold could be, even though the girl from Minnesota down the hall declared it “nothing.” Out in Oregon, snow had been a gift, a two-day dusting earned by enduring months of gray, dripping sky. But the wind whipping up the Hudson from the city was so vehement that even my bone marrow froze. Every morning, I hunkered under my duvet, unsure of how I’d make it to my 9:00 a.m. Latin class. The clouds spilled endless white and Ev slept in.”
Miranda Beverly-Whittemore, Bittersweet

Miranda Beverly-Whittemore Good detective work! Goodreads seemed the perfect place to keep track of all of them :) And yes, please! I can't wait to hear what you think of Bittersweet.


Coleen I think I know what article you read today...looks like you're adding a lot of the same books I am. :) I need to move Bittersweet up on my to-read list! Cheers!
