My books were wrapped in plain tissue paper. This is a no-frills box.
I received a nifty bookmark.
The back of the bookmark featured a quote from each of this month’s featured books.
I received two hardcover books this month. They sure look color-coordinated!
The Gilded Life of Mailda Duplaine by Alex Brunkhorst (List price $26.99, currently selling for $11.49) is supposed to have a touch of The Great Gatsby and a sprinkling of Rebecca, about a mysterious young woman hidden away by her rich father. A modern-day fairy tale of a princess in need of rescue, maybe.
Family secrets. Forbidden love. And the true price of wealth.
The story begins with a dinner party invitation… When young journalist Thomas Cleary is sent to dig up quotes for the obituary of a legendary film producer, the man’s eccentric daughter offers him access to the exclusive upper echelons of Hollywood society. As Thomas enters a world of private jets and sprawling mansions, his life and career take off beyond his wildest dreams.
Then he meets Matilda Duplaine.
Beautiful and mysterious, Matilda has spent her entire life within the walls of her powerful father’s Bel-Air estate. Thomas is entranced, and the two begin a secret love affair. But the more he learns about the mysterious woman’s identity, the more he realizes that privilege always comes with a price.
Don’t Tempt Me by Lori Foster (List price $26.99, currently selling for $14.99) is another contemporary romance, but with a more believable story line than the other selection. It also looks like there are two love stories for the price of one and the book moves between several different characters points-of-view.
Love comes along when it’s least wanted
Jason Guthrie has no time for entanglements—between helping out his widowed brother and teenage nephew and getting his hometown back on its feet, his days are spoken for. But his nights are another story… And when his lovely new neighbor, Honor Brown, reluctantly accepts his help in remodeling her house, Jason finds himself wishing his handyman skills could knock down the defenses she keeps building around herself.
Martial arts teacher Sullivan Dean knows real danger when he sees it—even when it takes the form of the gorgeous blonde helping her friend move in across the street. After putting his wayward past behind him to focus on teaching control to troubled kids, Sullivan has learned to avoid party girls like Lexie Perkins. But Sullivan can’t seem to keep his hands off the real woman behind that flirty charm—or keep his heart from landing at her feet…
Two contemporary love stories this month in my BookCase.Club box! 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. This month my books were selling for $26.48, way more than the price paid for this subscription! There are less expensive paperback versions available but I love the look of hardcovers on my bookshelf and there is something substantial about holding them when I’m reading. BookCase.Club sends books that are usually a few years old – one book this month was published in 2015, the other in 2016. Either way, they were both new to me!
