A pulse pounding mystery, a regency romance and a saucy tale of suburbanites cutting loose (with some sexy results!) are our picks of the best books of the week.
The Daniels family sets out on a road trip to a remote farm in western New York so that their eight-year-old son Reid and six-year-old daughter Ally can spend time with their paternal grandparents. En route, they stop to spend the night at a hotel…and the next morning they wake to their worst nightmare. The children are missing and nowhere to be found. The police are asking questions but as the hours slip by, their mother, Liz, grows increasingly frantic. With a mother’s intuition, Liz knows that her children weren’t taken by some random stranger, but by someone she knows and trusted. And she’ll do anything it takes to get them safely back in her arms.
When Amity Doncaster is kidnapped in broad daylight on a busy London street, she uses her wits—and secret weapon—to get away. But Amity is not the first woman the man in the black silk mask, dubbed the Bridegroom, has abducted. There are other victims who were not as fortunate as Amity. Despite her daring escape, the Bridegroom has his eye on Amity and is determined to finish what he started as punishment for her supposedly scandalous relations with Benedict Stanbridge, a spy for the Crown. Now, Benedict and Amity will work together to bring down the Bridegroom for good…while desperately trying to ignore feelings that can’t be denied.
Estelle owns a charming café in a small town, but business is slow and finding new customers is a struggle. So she tries something new, organizing a book club at the café. What starts as a rather mundane conversation becomes salacious as Estelle suggests they read an erotic tale…and grows steamier as the group slowly begins to incorporate what they read into their own lives. More than just erotica, The Naughty Girls Book Club is about people learning to let go of their inhibitions while, perhaps most importantly, forming new friendships and having fun.
