Hi. I’m Stacy. I’m a reader and foodie in Michigan.

I started An Unexpected Chapter in the summer of 2021 when my husband and I separated, and I needed a project to distract me. The title refers to both the unexpected turn in my life and that I knew books would be an important part of the blog. One year later, my marital status is still complicated, but the blog focus is finally defined. After testing out various topics, An Unexpected Chapter is all about books, food, and wine. In my book club posts, I sometimes combine all three. 

Here is some content that is typical of the blog:

The Diamond Eye by Kate Quinn: Book Review and Book Club Menu

Best Books for Foodies

Witchy Poached Pears

Cherry Amaretto Sangria

I hope you will join me in the journey!
