Water from my Heart by Charles Martin ($14.99) When I checked this book out on Amazon there was a video promo, like a movie trailer. I kept waiting for them to say “coming to theaters” but nope, it was for the book alone!

Charlie Finn had to grow up fast, living alone by age sixteen. Highly intelligent, he earned a life-changing scholarship to Harvard, where he learned how to survive and thrive on the outskirts of privileged society. That skill served him well in the cutthroat business world, as it does in more lucrative but dangerous ventures he now operates off the coast of Miami. Charlie tries to separate relationships from work. But when his choices produce devastating consequences, he sets out to right wrongs, traveling to Central America where he will meet those who have paid for his actions, including a woman and her young daughter. Will their fated encounter present Charlie with a way to seek the redemption he thought was impossible–and free his heart to love one woman as he never knew he could?

Tiny Little Thing by Beatriz Williams ($6.89 for used hardback, $11.35 for new paperback) This book is historical fiction and sounds a bit like a famous political family from the ’60’s. The inside cover mentions that Tiny was one of three Schuyler sisters, so excuse my while I go get THAT song out of my head. Work!

In the summer of 1966, Christina “Tiny” Hardcastle stands on the brink of a breathtaking future. Unlike her spirited sisters, Tiny was the consummate well-behaved debutant, poised and picture-perfect, raised to serve as a consort to a great man. Now, as her handsome husband, Frank, runs for a Massachusetts seat in the U.S. House of Representatives, that long-sought destiny lies nearly within reach.

But behind her glamorous facade, Tiny’s flawless life is cracking. She and Frank both have secrets in their pasts that could shatter their political ambitions and the intricate truce of their marriage. So when two unwelcome visitors arrive at the Hardcastle family’s Cape Cod estate—Frank’s cousin Caspian, a Vietnam war hero who knows a thing or two about Tiny’s hidden past, and an envelope containing incriminating photographs—Tiny is forced into a reckless gamble against a house that always, always wins…

I love that BookCase.Club sends picks that are highly rated, both on Amazon and Goodreads, and it is always worth more than the price paid for the subscription. BookCase.Club sends books that are usually a few years old, although one of this month’s selections was from 2016. Either way, they were both new to me!

What did you think of this month’s choices? Have you tried any of the BookCase Club subscriptions?
