More Great Books! Coming Out In November 2019

 

I am extremely excited to read Single by K.L. Slater which is coming to us in November! This author has a body of work that consistently receives four and five stars. Single will be the first book I have read by her and I am really thrilled to begin it today!

Here is what you need to know: 

‘I keep feeling like I’m being watched – dropping the boys off at school, choosing wine at the supermarket – but when I turn around there’s nobody there…’

When single mother Darcy’s son falls from a rope bridge at a local playground, life stands still. She clutches his small, limp body, frozen, until a pair of strong hands push her aside, and she watches as George, a local doctor, saves her son’s life.

George is a single parent too, and with his twinkling hazel eyes, easy charm, and lack of wedding band is almost too good to be true, but coffee becomes lunch, lunch becomes dinner, and soon they can’t go an evening without seeing each other. When he invites her to move into his beautiful home with its sprawling garden for her boys, Darcy doesn’t hesitate.

But as Darcy is settling in, she receives a bunch of flowers with a chilling message. George says they’re from an obsessed ex-girlfriend, Opal, and days later Opal turns up at Darcy’s son’s football match. She claims to have shocking information that could threaten George’s custody of his daughter.

Darcy doesn’t know who to trust, but she’s starting to suspect that, whatever the truth, she might have put her beloved boys into terrible danger…

I was just reading the reviews for this author’s books and it’s clear she is an excellent writer who can pen fantastic suspense. There are several books on Amazon for $3.99 so be sure to check them out.

This one comes to you on November 25, 2019 and you can place an order for it here.

 

 

I wrote about this book on my book Instagram, otherwise known as bookstagram (follow me here) and I am so happy to share the story of Nancy Wake with you. Here’s how I found out about Nancy: I listened to a My Favorite Murder podcast where they talked about brave women during World War II and it was a really great introduction to some fearless women. The next day, I looked for another podcast to listen to and stumbled upon Criminal Broads where the episode (episode #30)  about five Nazi killing women and one of them was Nancy Wake. Fast forward to the next day when I discovered this book is about to be published!

What timing! I knew I had to get my hands on it so I could learn more.

Here’s what you need to know:

‘Of all the variously talented women SOE sent to France, Nancy Wake was perhaps the most formidable’ —Sebastian Faulks

“This is the incredible true story of the greatest spy you’ve never heard of—as told to the author by the woman herself.

At the outbreak of World War Two, Nancy Wake’s glamorous life in the South of France seemed far removed from the fighting. But when her husband was called up for military service, Nancy felt she had just as much of a duty to fight for freedom. By 1943, her fearless undercover work even in the face of personal tragedy had earned her a place on the Gestapo’s ‘most wanted’ list.

Mixing armed combat with a taste for high living, Nancy frustrated the Nazis at every turn—whether she was smuggling food and messages as part of the underground Resistance or being parachuted into the heart of the war to lead a 7,000-strong band of Resistance fighters.

The extraordinary courage of this unequalled woman changed the course of the war, and Russell Braddon’s vividly realized biography brings her incredible story to life.”

The synopsis doesn’t go into much detail but from what I have read, Nancy was actually feared by the Germans and on their Most Wanted list. If you love history, badass women, World War II, then you must get this book!

Topping my TO READ list is Nothing More Dangerous by Allen Eskens. Just from the description, I knew I’d love this novel. It has everything I like in a book from sympathetic characters to a rural setting, a coming-of-age story, plus the book takes place in 1976 so it has a nice historical fiction element to it.

Here’s what you need to know: 

After fifteen years of growing up in the Ozark hills with his widowed mother, high-school freshman Boady Sanden is beyond ready to move on. He dreams of glass towers and cityscapes, driven by his desire to be anywhere other than Jessup, Missouri. The new kid at St. Ignatius High School, if he isn’t being pushed around, he is being completely ignored. Even his beloved woods, his playground as a child and his sanctuary as he grew older, seem to be closing in on him, suffocating him.

Then Thomas Elgin moves in across the road, and Boady’s life begins to twist and turn. Coming to know the Elgins—a black family settling into a community where notions of “us” and “them” carry the weight of history—forces Boady to rethink his understanding of the world he’s taken for granted. Secrets hidden in plain sight begin to unfold: the mother who wraps herself in the loss of her husband, the neighbor who carries the wounds of a mysterious past that he holds close, the quiet boss who is fighting his own hidden battle.

But the biggest secret of all is the disappearance of Lida Poe, the African-American woman who keeps the books at the local plastics factory. Word has it that Ms. Poe left town, along with a hundred thousand dollars of company money. Although Boady has never met the missing woman, he discovers that the threads of her life are woven into the deepest fabric of his world.

As the mystery of her fate plays out, Boady begins to see the stark lines of race and class that both bind and divide this small town—and he will be forced to choose sides.

The author, Allen Eskens, is so talented. His novel, The Life We Bury received over six thousand positive reviews and this one is bound to receive just as many, if not more.

This one is due out on November 12, order it now.
