The Woman in the Photo by Mary Hogan came from William Morrow and TLC Book Tours for a blog tour.
I enjoy historical fiction with ties to the present so this one about a society woman who risks everything to do the right thing and a modern day woman trying to uncover the mystery of her biological family looks really interesting.
The One-in-a-Million Boy by Monica Wood came from me to me.
A neglectful dad suffering from guilt starts visiting the elderly woman his young son was helping out to earn a Boy Scout badge after his son's untimely death. This will probably be very sad but I'm counting on it to be hopeful as well.
Remember My Beauties by Lynne Hugo came from Switchgrass Books and TLC Book Tours for a blog tour.
This slim novel about a family that is disintegrating, the woman who is trying to hold them together, and the breeding farm and remaining horses that give them hope sounds tough and beautiful.
What Would Mary Berry Do? by Claire Sandy came from me for myself.
Doesn't this one look just sloppily delectable? It hits my love of fun, frothy, Brit lit too. And it sounds like fans of The Great British Bake-Off will thoroughly enjoy it. Can't wait!
Nine Island by Jane Alison came from Catapult.
A woman in a beach-side glass building is deciding whether to give up on love as she translates Ovid's Metamorphoses; this looks literary and wonderful.
Auntie Poldie and the Sicilian Lions by Mario Giordano came from Meryl Zegarek.
A sassy, foul-mouthed elderly widow as a sleuth and set in Italy to boot? I don't normally do mysteries but I find myself attracted to every aspect of the blurb for this one (besides the presence of a corpse) so I'm going to give it a try.
A Certain Age by Beatriz Williams came from William Morrow and TLC Book Tours for a blog tour.
Luscious cover, no? The Roaring Twenties, romance, intrigue, and a love triangle. How could anyone resist this? I know I can't.
