A Summer at Sea by Katie Fforde came from me to me because I was ordering everyone else books and I needed some too.
I have really enjoyed Fforde's charming fiction before so combine that with a water word in the title and there was no chance I could pass up this tale of a midwife who decides to spend the summer cooking on a boat and ends up having a summer romance with a local doctor.
The Great and the Good by Michel Deon came from Meryl Zegarek PR.
How could I not want to read a novel about a young man who meets the love of his life on the Queen Mary while en route to college? This sounds so enticing to me. (Note there's another water connection!)
At Hawthorn Time by Melissa Harrison came from me to me because I was ordering everyone else books and I needed some too.
I had set this one aside for later in my cart for a very long time and I figured it was finally time to acquire it. A rural community, four people really struggling, and a terrible car accident mean that this one sounds appealingly tense and suspenseful.
The Winter Tree by Charles Todd came from me to me because I was ordering everyone else books and I needed some too.
I've been looking for my Christmas spirit and am hoping I might find it in the pages of this holiday tale set during the early days of WWI about an aristocratic young English woman who meets a soldier as she tries to make her way back to England and then trains as a nurse in order to get back to the war and the man she can't forget.
