Everything in my box!
The Obsession By Nora Roberts (List price $17, currently selling for $11.09) I am really into mysteries right now and lucky for me, this story has some suspense along with romance. I’ve read books by this author before so I am eager to see how this one turns out!
“She stood in the deep, dark woods, breath shallow and cold prickling over her skin despite the hot, heavy air. She took a step back, then two, as the urge to run fell over her.”
Naomi Bowes lost her innocence the night she followed her father into the woods. In freeing the girl trapped in the root cellar, Naomi revealed the horrible extent of her father’s crimes and made him infamous. No matter how close she gets to happiness, she can’t outrun the sins of Thomas David Bowes.
Now a successful photographer living under the name Naomi Carson, she has found a place that calls to her, a rambling old house in need of repair, thousands of miles away from everything she’s ever known. Naomi wants to embrace the solitude, but the kindly residents of Sunrise Cove keep forcing her to open up—especially the determined Xander Keaton.
Naomi can feel her defenses failing, and knows that the connection her new life offers is something she’s always secretly craved. But the sins of her father can become an obsession, and, as she’s learned time and again, her past is never more than a nightmare away.
Rush Oh! By Shirley Barrett (List price $25, currently selling for $9.89) My very favorite genre is historical fiction so I was happy to find this coming-of-age story that takes place in Australia in 1908. According to reviews it is also humorous so I am going to read it between darker books. It is summer, after all!
An impassioned, charming, and hilarious debut novel about a young woman’s coming-of-age, during one of the harshest whaling seasons in the history of New South Wales.
1908: It’s the year that proves to be life-changing for our teenage narrator, Mary Davidson, tasked with providing support to her father’s boisterous whaling crews while caring for five brothers and sisters in the wake of their mother’s death. But when the handsome John Beck-a former Methodist preacher turned novice whaler with a mysterious past-arrives at the Davidson’s door pleading to join her father’s crews, suddenly Mary’s world is upended.
As her family struggles to survive the scarcity of whales and the vagaries of weather, and as she navigates sibling rivalries and an all-consuming first love for the newcomer John, nineteen-year-old Mary will soon discover a darker side to these men who hunt the seas, and the truth of her place among them.
Swinging from Mary’s own hopes and disappointments to the challenges that have beset her family’s whaling operation, RUSH OH! is an enchanting blend of fact and fiction that’s as much the story of its gutsy narrator’s coming-of-age as it is the celebration of an extraordinary episode in history.
I think Bookcase.Club does a great job of sending a variety of books and I am surprised that after a year with this subscription I have only come across one book that I have read previously! I have been introduced to author’s I have never heard of and the books always have good ratings on Amazon. They are not the latest offerings yet they aren’t that old – one was released in 2016, the other the year after that. My books are currently selling for $20.98 so the value is more than the price paid for the subscription!
