Strings Attached by Joanne Lipman and Melanie Kupchynsky came from Hyperion.
A book about a music teacher who was an inspiration and mentor and who pulled the very best out of his students even while his own life was not the stuff of storybooks. This has fascinated me since I first heard about it.
Dinner With the Smileys by Sarah Smiley came from Hyperion.
Have you ever done that exercise where you name people you'd like to have to dinner? Well, the Smiley family actually invited their heroes for dinner every night of the year that their husband and father was deployed and this book is the result. How cool sounding is that?!
Since You've Been Gone by Anouska Knight came from Harlequin.
A young widow who runs a bakery meets a new man who is haunted by his own ghosts despite the appearance of living a charmed life. Sounds delicious, no?
