Dear Miss Darcy by Laura Briggs and Sarah Burgess came from me because I was already ordering Christmas presents and decided I needed it.
Have I mentioned before what a sucker I am for Jane Austen inspired books? Yeah, another one. ;-) This one is about Elizabeth and Darcy's descendent who becomes a love advice columnist even though she's never had a successful relationship herself. Sounds enticing, no?!
Hausfrau by Jill Alexander Essbaum came from Random House.
A bored and unfulfilled housewife tries to fill her days with classes, therapy, and affairs but she finds it incredibly hard to extricate herself emotionally from the latter. How titillating!
A God in Every Stone by Kamila Shamsie came from me because I was already ordering Christmas presents and decided I needed it.
I have thoroughly enjoyed two of Kamila Shamsie's beautiful previous novels so this one about Turkey, a long lost treasure, an archaeological dig, WWI, and two people who are both searching for something is incredibly appealing to me.
A Bollywood Affair by Sonali Dev came from me because I was already ordering Christmas presents and decided I needed it.
Just putting Bollywood in the title drew me in but the tale of a twenty-four year old woman married at age four to a man she has never seen since and the Bollywood director younger brother of that man who is trying to get a divorce for his brother looks plenty entertaining as well.
The Last Good Paradise by Tatjana Soli came from St. Martin's Press and TLC Book Tours for a blog tour.
Soli writes gorgeous novels and I am really looking forward to this one about a group of people on a remote South Pacific island who are all looking to reinvent their lives.
