There are some great new titles coming out this week. Here are the ones we’ll be adding to our reading list. What about you?
We loved Lauren Graham back in Gilmore Girls and are so excited to read her debut novel. Franny Banks came to New York City with a three year plan to make it big in the acting world. But with only six months left to her deadline and a rapidly dwindling bank account, Franny’s big break may finally come if she can wow at her upcoming showcase for her acting class. Will she finally land a job—or will she have to hightail it back home? For anyone who has ever moved to the big city with big dreams of success, this funny, charming story is not to be missed.
Tess Delaney has a father she never met, a mother she hardly knows, and apparently, a grandfather she never heard about in a coma. Even more shocking, she is named in his will to inherit half of a 100-acre apple orchard in Sonoma. Who gets the other half? Isabel Johansen, the half-sister she didn’t know existed. Tess begins to discover a new world filled with family…and love. #1 New York Times bestselling author Susan Wiggs delivers a poignant, moving tale about sisters, friendship and the ties that bind us all together.
(** We’re lucky enough to have Susan visiting Shelf Pleasure today! Read that interview here.)
In the mood for a regency romance? Check out Kasey Michaels’ smoldering Redgraves series. Lady Katherine Redgrave is determined to figure out who is behind the traitorous conspiracy that puts her entire family in danger. And then she meets Simon Ravenbill, the handsome Marquis of Singleton, who proves to be quite the distraction. But Simon has an agenda of his own—one that leads to an explosive passion that may place them on the most dangerous path of all.
As if moving to a new, snooty, rich-kid private school isn’t bad enough (those uniforms!), the first girl Jeff meets is Kimberlee—who just happens to be dead. Oh, and she’s also a klepto. Seriously, can life get any worse? In an attempt to rid himself of this ghostly presence, Jeff agrees to help Kimberlee with some unfinished business. Soon, Jeff’s new crush, Sera, and Kimberlee are at major odds—and Jeff can’t help but wonder what he has gotten himself into.
