New Releases 10.12.15
This week’s best new releases include an ambitious saga about the golden age of Hollywood and a charming story of one family trying to survive the holiday season.
Is it too early for holiday stories? In Hilderbrand’s sequel to her bestselling Winter Street, we celebrate Christmas on Nantucket, where the charming streets are filled with Quinn family drama. Winter Street Inn owner Kelley Quinn is now back with his first wife, his son Kevin has a new baby with Isabelle and Ava has a nice new boyfriend. But nothing can ever be simple. Kelley’s estranged wife Mitzi renters the scene at the same time as Kevin’s ex-wife Norah, who can never be trusted. When Ava finds herself tempted by an old beau, mayhem ensues. How will the Quinn family survive the season of goodwill and cheer?
A historical novel set during the golden age of Hollywood sounds perfect to us movie lovers. Los Angeles in 1935 is a place full of artistry and movie making magic. But the scandals and power plays behind the scenes are just as fascinating—and often shocking—as the movies themselves. Loretta Young is only 21-years-old when she gets cast in a feature film where she meets and falls for a major star that happens to be 34-years-old and married. Loretta, along with her secretary, Alda Ducci, a former nun, must learn how to survive in Hollywood, where morals and loyalty are hard to find. Filled with adventure, passion and love, the story spans decades and continents and a few characters you may have heard of, from Spencer Tracy to Clark Gable.
