Katy Evans, the New York Times bestselling author of Real, Mine, Remy, Rogue, and Ripped dishes on her sexy new series.
Even if your school days are behind you, it’s okay to take a Spring Break. And here are the new books you should be bringing along.
The Stranger by Harlan Coben
You can always count on #1 bestselling Coben to deliver edge-of-your-seat suspense. The Stranger knows a secret that can shatter Adam Price’s world—and leave him desperate to make things right.
The books on my nightstand are a motley crew of all-time favorites, books I hope to read, books I failed to read, and books I’ve finished that haven’t yet made it back to the bookshelf.
Currently, there is a copy of Lucky Jim by Kingsley Amis. This is my favorite book of all time, one I’ve read many times, and I like to keep it close to hand. I have many copies, but there is almost always a copy on my nightstand. Next to Lucky Jim is John Updike’s Too Far to Go, a collection of stories that chronicle the marriage of Joan and Richard Maple. I love this collection, and can always re-read any of the stories.
Several years ago, the film version of Pride and Prejudice was released with a different cast from the popular BBC series, the premise being five daughters with little fortune need to marry a wealthy man. However, Elizabeth Bennett wants a marriage filled with love and turns down the reverend cousin, the male who inherits, in her quest.
Her eye catches William Darcy, a very rich boy who’s quiet, thoughtful, a good friend and quite prideful and prejudiced. It doesn’t help that he thinks she, too, is prideful and prejudiced. Quite the conundrum that could have easily kept them apart…until they begin to see the true qualities in each other. Near the end (spoiler alert!), Darcy finds her and says, “You have bewitched me, body and soul.”
